Easy Pina Colada Recipe
National Pina Colada Day
If July 10th has passed and you missed the celebration of Puerto Rico's official drink on National Pina Colada Day, don't worry! Pina Colada's are great any day of the year! So let's get out the blender and mix up a batch. You don't need to travel to the islands or beaches to enjoy this tropical drink, you can make this refreshing tropical drink recipe right at home!
My favorite way to make a pina colada or any frozen slushy tropical drink is in my magic bullet blender. With the magic bullet frozen drink recipes are quick and easy to make and the cleanup is a cinch, just rinse and go! I love the Magic Bullet, it's my favorite kitchen appliance! You can make tropical drinks, smoothies, even homemade guacamole in the bullet. In fact, healthy smoothies, green juices for detoxing, tropical drinks and frozen fruit slushies are so easy to make with this blender that I'm making them all the time now - it's much easier than using a juicer!
