I gotta say that this was really good! Here it is, 10:00 PM, I was sitting thinking about my Jamaican vacation, and how depressed I was that's it has been a while, then I made a whole blender full, put the contents into my 64 ounce thermal mug, and maybe because it's kickin in, but I feel a lot better right now. Thank you and no problem mon!

This is far better than the horrible recipe on the Coco Lopez can, which was *WAY* too sweet. I may some minor changes, such as no bitters. I started with a 2.5 cup Magic Bullet blender cup, added 1/4 cup 1 tbsp (2.5 oz) of Bacardi Gold rum (dark & white combined), 1/4 cup 1 tbsp (2.5 oz) of Dole Pineapple Juice (from a can), 3 tbsp (1.5 oz) of Coco Lopez Creme of Coconut, 2 tbsp (1 oz) of "Half & Half", and filled it up with soft ice, then blended.

Perfection!

I worked my way through a handful of lousy recipes, came across this one and sensed a winner. I've made it a few times now, pushing the ingredients a little bit this way and that, and generally speaking keep the proportions the same. I triple the recipe, fill a large blender carafe half full of ice, back off the coconut cream by half an ounce (commercial products like Lopez are pretty sweet), and convert the dairy cream to coconut milk. Jackpot! Use the freshest pineapple juice you can get (make your own if you can), and definitely include the bitters. It rounds out the flavor and gives it that professional taste. 5 stars.

My husband was looking for a good pina colada recipe so I found this one for him. We had all the ingredients on hand except for the bitters. He made a whole pitcher of this. The key is the coconut cream (which I can actually drink on it's own it's that good). He will definitly be making this again and again. Thanks for the great recipe NcMystery!

For the sake of my Zaar World Tour team I decided that I just had to sacrifice the righteous path of no sugar and low fat and sample this forbidden bit of heaven. Man, this is good! If your going to err on the side of delicious this is the way to do it. It packs a punch so just imagine yourself in the Caribbean, on a hammock by the sea and the world will be good.

I used frozen pineapple chunks instead of ice and as we don't have the right kind of coconut cream in FRance, I used creme fraiche, coconut juice and some sugar. Delicious!

Very good recipe! I used a stick blender with ice, so it was a delicious slushy drink. I only had appertif bitters, but it's only a dash. Sometime I should get better rum, but I'm not a big rum fan. And even with that, this was very tasty.
