We’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen around here, and we’re not at all ashamed that much of said time centers around mixing drinks. So when we happened across a particularly (innocent enough) non-alcoholic summery beverage over on Smitten Kitchen, we simply couldn’t resist the opportunity to turn it into a delicious frozen blended rum concoction. Can you blame us?
Recipe adapted from Smitten Kitchen. Serves 6:
1C frozen pineapple chunks
2C coconut milk (we used the canned kind)
2/3C lime juice
1/3C granulated or superfine sugar (more or less to taste)
1C coconut rum (optional)
Lime slices & mint for garnish
Basically, all you have to do is throw everything in a blender (depending on what you’re working with, you may want to pulverize the ice and pineapple a bit first before you add the remaining ingredients) and pulse until you have a nice slushy consistency. Top with a lime wedge and some fragrant mint and your taste buds may as well be on a tropical vacation. Warning: this is EXCEPTIONALLY easy to drink, especially if you’re hot, thirsty, or umm…alive, so just keep that in mind. Cheers!
