PIÑA COLADA

'I'm in love with the coco'

(Serves 4)

  • 1 ½  pineapples
  • 200ml fat coconut milk
  • ½ tsp cardamom powder
  • A handful frozen coconut slices or ice cubes
  • Frozen raspberries
  • Passion fruit
  • Coconut shreds

When i am in India, this is what a drink everyday. Pineapple juice mixed with coconut milk and a pinch of cardamom, the raspberries and passion fruit are just an extra that make it more "fancy". It tastes like "heaven" especially with the pineapples of Kerala (South India). Now i just made the recipe with some from the market but this drink is still a must!

Peel and cut the pineapples in slices and juice. Combine the fresh pineapple juice with the coconut milk and some ice cubes by using a blender. Add the cardamon and mix. (You can also add a pinch of vanilla and turmeric but first try the original version!)

Place some spoons of frozen raspberries and passion fruit on the bottom of the glass. Pour the piña colada on the top. Sprinkle coconut shreds on the top.
