Summer in a bowl. Nothing tastes quite like summer than a piña colada. This simple version requires only 4 ingredients: Frozen banana, pineapple, mango and coconut milk!
It’s been HOT up here on the coast, so I’ve started whipping up this tropical-inspired nice-cream as a refreshing way to cool down.
The original piña colada is a frozen blended drink typically made from coconut, rum, pineapple juice and ice.
Using frozen fruit means no ice is needed, and the wholefood ingredients used in this healthy twist on the well-loved cocktail means you’re giving your body a hit of fibre and nutrients, in a delicious creamy ice-cream form.
For extra protein, you can add plain or vanilla protein powder, or a tablespoon or more of hemp seeds. Top with coconut whipped cream and you’ve got the perfect mid-morning/afternoon snack!

Homemade Piña Colada Ice-Cream
This refreshing soft serve ice-cream requires just 5 minutes to make, and the only equipment needed is a blender! No mess, no fuss.
- 1/2 frozen banana, peeled and chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1/4 cup organic coconut milk or cream*
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/4 cup frozen mango
- 1 scoop plain or vanilla protein powder or 1 tbsp hemp seeds
- Coconut whipped cream, for topping
- Add all the ingredients (except toppings) to a high speed blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth.
- Pour into a coconut bowl or glass jar and top with coconut whipped cream and some pineapple. If you have any leftover, freeze into popsicles or ice cube moulds.
*I’ve found the Macro brand is best for coconut milk and coconut cream, in my experience.
