Classic Piña Colada is one of my favorite cocktails, however, on a trip to Cartagena many years ago, I fell in love with a Fresa Colada from the hotel where I was staying. It was incredible! Sweet, creamy and irresistibly pink.
Fresa Colada (Strawberry Colada)
- 1 pound strawberries hulled and cut in half
- ¾ cup of coconut milk
- 1 cup of vanilla ice cream
- 4 tablespoons of condensed milk or to your taste
- White rum to your taste
- In a blender, combine all the ingredients. Taste and add extra rum or sweet condensed milk, if desired.
- Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
Last week, having bought a lot of organic strawberries, I remembered that delicious drink and decided to recreate it at home. It was very easy to make and absolutely delicious.
It will also be delicious combining raspberries with the strawberries. You can make a kids version as well, by omitting the rum. Enjoy this wonderful drink on a warm day!
Wow looks so delicious and fresh.
That drink looks absolutely amazing, wish I had seen some when in Cartagena not long ago but can make it now!
Love that drink! What would be a good substitute for sweetened condensed milk? Diabetes is my problem....
I used condensed milk to make it sweet, just add your favorite sweetener or omit it if is sweet enough for you.
A simple and delicious summer drink!
these are so pretty! i love the hue and i'm enamored of every single ingredient on the list. delightful!!
