Recipe Notes

I eyeball this recipe every time I make it because I use the same cup (the single serve cups that come with my blender)! Usually I will fill the cup halfway up with frozen fruit to start, but feel free to make this your own and adjust to your liking!

  • 6 oz Cream of Coconut
  • 6 oz Pineapple Juice

  • 4 oz Golden or Spiced Rum
  • 4 Cups Ice
  • Pineapple Wedges for garnish


  1. Place the white rum, coconut cream, pineapple juice + chunks, golden rum, and ice in a blender. Process until totally blended.

  2. Pour into glasses and garnish with pineapple wedge!
