Frozen Pina Colada Recipe

Many pina colada recipes call for cream of coconut, which is a sweetened version of coconut cream. This refined sugar-free version uses the rich coconut cream found on the top of a can of unsweetened coconut milk. A simple syrup made with powdered monk fruit provides the perfect touch of sweetness to balance out the other flavors.

Mocktail version:  Omit the rum and replace it with 1 oz. coconut cream and 3 oz. pineapple juice before blending.

    To serve, pour into glasses and serve immediately garnished with fresh pineapple slices. Enjoy!
