Completely Non-Alcoholic Pina Colada

Believe it or not, not everyone drinks alcohol. It may be shocking to some, but not every one who is twenty-one doesn't race to the bar for happy hour after work. In fact, the most fun people I know don't drink at all. If you are lucky to count yourself among that group of people who can have a fun time without drinking, then this recipe is for you. From what I've heard, there are some alcoholic drinks that are actually quite tasty, but because I don't drink alcohol, I wouldn't know. Here is one recipe that can give you a great taste without any alcohol, so you won't have to worry about that. Here's to those who believe that you can have fun without alcohol!

Here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 1 cup of unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup of cream of coconut (canned)
  • 4 tablespoons of whipping cream (freeze the cream in an ice tray where one cube equals one tablespoon)
  • 2 cups of ice cubes

All you have to do to make this sober drink is put the juices and the cream ice cubes in a blender. Start blending the juices and cream, and then add the ice cubes one at a time until all the ice cubes are gone. The resulting "pina colada" should look somewhat frothy. Serve this sober pina colada immediately, and garnish it with some pineapple and fresh strawberries.

This is one of the easiest and tastiest treats you can make in a blender, and you don't need (and shouldn't have, anyway) any alcohol at all! If you are wondering how you can possibly have fun without some booze in your system. If that is one of your concerns, then use this recipe to help kick off your quest for sober fun. One of the best ways I have found to have a great time without alcohol is having game nights with friends. So, make these sober pina coladas, sit down, and have a great time playing Taboo, a card game or two, and Scattergories. Believe me, it is completely possible to have a good time without the catalyst of inebriation!
