What is better than a pina colada? How about one you drink before noon and still be able to look your mother-in-law in the eyes at the dinner table? This Virgin Pina Colada recipe is perfect for those hot days when you want something cold to drink but don't want to look like an alcoholic, either. The maraschino cherries are a special treat, and I like to add as many as possible whenever possible.

Let the kids join the fun. They can have a "mocktail" and help blend up these colorful drinks. To match a party theme, you could also add Spongebob toothpicks or mini umbrellas. Once the kids are satisfied, clean the blender and add some coconut rum so the adults can join the party.

A zippy delicious reminder of your tropic dreams. Drink on cold winter nights, and the coconut and pineapple mix will help you to imagine jungle breezes. Drink in warm weather for a refreshing pick me up while you cool down from the warm weather. Make it as directed and you'll be happy (we were !). We also make this with rum sometimes.

Guest Foodie March 18, 2009 COMMENT: The recipe does not say how much ice to use. I would like some idea.

I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I had to make it for my Chefs class and my teacher didn't give me any pineapple juice, so i used orange juice and by-golly it was good. I like the use of the cream of coconut, makes it smooth and tasty.
Just like the name says, this rich dessert is made with bread and essentially a custard sauce which is baked until set. Some of the variations on the basic recipe use croissants, pound cake, or even doughnuts instead of bread.
