Pina Colada Punch

Yum
A tropical a drink is not only for hot summer days... it's for any day that you want to bring some sunshine into your life.  This Pina Colada Punch does exactly that with the refreshing taste of pineapple and the creamy coconut.  I made this punch non-alcoholic since I was making it for both children and adults. Of course you can add rum if you like for an adult only crowd. Life should always be a party, enjoy a fruity drink and do the conga.

Visit my post Gilligan' Island Themed Castaway Party for more tropical ideas. :)

Ingredients:
1 (20oz) can of pineapple chunks in pineapple juice (see note)
1 (46oz) can of dole pineapple juice chilled
1 (8oz)can of cream of coconut (available in the Hispanic Foods Aisle)
1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream
1 liter bottle of lemon/lime soda
rum to taste (optional)

Recipe adapted from  allrecipes.com

Note:  I recommend taking the can of pineapple and it's juice and put it into a jell-o mold then freeze it. Take it out of the mold by warming up the sides and place the frozen pineapple ring into the punch bowl to keep the punch cold without watering it down with ice cubes.  As it melts chunks of pineapple will float in the punch to enjoy.

  11. This is the recipe I was waiting for. I think I will head out to the store now for the ingredients. I love pina coladas, at least the idea of them - pineapple and coconut but not the alcohol. The ice cream portion makes me even more excited.

  15. These are one of those drinks that once I start drinking it, I can't stop! Therefore, I'd be in a lot of trouble if I added the rum. :)
