Summer Drink: Pineapple Coolers

Frozen Pineapple Cooler Recipe - SO refreshing!

When the temperatures start rising into the 90s down here in Nashville, there is one thing that is a must – a fruity frozen beverage to beat the heat. Even if you’re sitting comfortably in the air conditioning, there is something so “vacation feeling” about sipping on a frozen concoction, right? I’m not sure why we leave frozen drinks to vacation time because they are truly so easy to make at home. As long as you have a blender and the ingredients, you’re good to go. So don’t wait around for the next vacay, y’all! MAKE THESE STAT! They’re so good!

    Ooh, I’m all about these beautiful, frozen drinks while I spend this summer pregnant…I just have to hope some of them are just as good sans alcohol! Really excited about anything with watermelon, lime, or basil right now :)
    (PS, Where could I find some of your tall, skinny glasses? Are they called vodka glasses? Thanks for the help, and delightful recipes.)

      Hi Krystal!! After just having finished being pregnant, I totally feel you! This is still REALLY good without the rum. I actually think it would be great with basil too (or my Basil Blender – it’s linked above too). These glasses are from World Market. I LOVE THEM!

    What could I use as a substitute for Coconut Milk? Would whole milk be the same?

      Courtney says:

      The coconut milk is much creamier and thicker than milk. You could use heavy cream as a substitute.

    Can you share how many servings your original recipe makes? These look delicious!

    Did you use coconut milk from a can or from the carton in the dairy department? These look so good!

    These look SO good, I LOVE pineapple drinks!! However, I’m not a fan of lime, what would you suggest as a good substitute? (I was thinking maybe orange juice?)


  1. […] month’s recipe comes from Courtney Whitmore and Courtney’s entertaining expertise and recipes have been featured in Better Homes & Gardens, […]

  2. […] there’s coconut milk involved. I got the idea after seeing Pizzazzerie’s post on Pineapple Coolers, which looked awesomely refreshing. My original plan was to make an extra tropical version […]
