Ingredients & notes
You'll need the following ingredients to make this easy mocktail.
Pineapple: You can use fresh or frozen pineapple chunks for an immediate cooling result.
Unsweetened coconut cream or milk: add just enough to get that lovely coconut flavor.
Note on coconut milk: If using coconut milk, place it in the fridge the night before and only take the cream of coconut that has congealed at the top. Full-fat coconut cream also balances the acidity of the pineapple and adds a smoother consistency.
Coconut water: This tropical drink is plenty sweet, so go for unsweetened coconut water.
Fine coconut shreds: It's not just for garnish. It adds an extra creamy coconut flavor without using too much coconut fat. You can add more for a thicker drink.
Garnishes: A drizzle of maple syrup adds a sweet touch. But extra coconut shreds, a pineapple wedge, or fresh pineapple leaves create a beautiful presentation.
Full recipe with measurements in the recipe card.
Place chunks of fruit, coconut cream, coconut water, and two tablespoons of coconut shreds in a blender jar.
You can use a high-speed blender, food processor, or any other regular blender.
Blend until smooth and deliciously creamy.
Pour in your glass of choice over an ice cube or crushed ice (unless you've used frozen pineapple chunks).
Garnish with a drizzle of maple syrup, extra coconut shreds, and pineapple wedges (optional).
Don't skip this step. Mocktail garnishes add to the appeal of this drink and complement the flavors. I mean, what's a mocktail without a fancy dress-up?
Here are a few suggestions:
- A drizzle of maple syrup incorporates a woodsy, natural sweetness,
- Fine coconut shreds as a garnish add a tropical element and a subtle crunchy bite
- Consider a sugary coconut rim that adds caramel notes and a fun factor.
- And don't forget the crushed ice or one or two ice cubes. It dilutes the pureed fruits a bit while adding a small chilling factor. All good!
- Other fun garnishes to consider: maraschino cherries, a cocktail umbrella, if you have them, or lime garnishing, mint, or sage sprigs are some alternatives to explore.
