Carol's Story

A creamy blend of coconut, pineapple and rum. This has to be one of the most popular cocktails worldwide, with a name meaning "strained pineapple". Pina Colada was introduced August 16, 1954 and has been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978. This is my inspiration for making this drink into a dessert using Cream Cheese and Instant Pudding. This is a nice summer time dessert. Enjoy!


1 c
pina colada mix
1 c
coconut milk
1 pkg
instant vanilla pudding (sugar free)
8 oz
cream cheese (whipped)
1 c
fresh pieapple chunks
2 Tbsp
rum or rum flavor if desired

Directions Step-By-Step

In blender, combine pina colada mix, coconut milk, and vanilla pudding. Blend well, then add Cream Cheese, fresh pineapple and rum. Blend until smooth and pudding is starting to set.
Pour Pina Colada Delight into cocktail glasses and let chill for about 15 - 20 minutes. When ready to serve, garnish with pineapple chucks and maraschino cherries.

I will use Rum Extract, as I do not drink, as long as it has the Rum flavor, I am sure it is really good. Thanks again for sharing Carol
