I moved to Florida recently ( which is where I grew up) and being here has made me crave some of my Florida favorites: grilled mahi-mahi, key lime pie, and piña coladas.

I have found it to be impossible to find all natural, non-processed piña coladas! So I took matters into my own hands and made this incredibly rich, creamy and satisfying All Natural Piña Coladas recipe. It makes the best piña coladas that I’ve ever had, and it only takes 5 minutes to put together!

Oh and all the ingredients in this recipe are Paleo and Clean– except for the rum, which is optional! (kind of) 🙂 Healthy homemade clean pina colada cocktails at their finest.

Prior to making these All Natural Piña Coladas, my husband and I ordered some at a bar. And all I can say is EWW. It tasted like chemicals! It almost tasted like suntan lotion? But with a hint of gasoline.

There was NO WAY this could be good for you. And not only did it taste bad, but my husband turned bright red, which is our sign that something processed is in the food.

( sidenote: my husband has an auto-immune disease and so we find that him turning red is our barometer for what foods to stay away from)

Needless to say, I knew it was time to start making them at home.

Ingredients needed to make these All Natural Piña Coladas:

  • coconut cream
  • frozen pineapple
  • pineapple juice
  • rum ( optional )
  • maple syrup
  • ice

How simple are these ingredients?

If you look at a popular pina colada mix that you can buy in stores, however, the ingredients are terrible.

For example, here is the ingredients of one that I was looking at: Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Titanium Dioxide (for Color), Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Sodium Citrate, Pectin, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Yellow 5, Red 40


UM no thank you.

No wonder my husband’s face turns red when he drinks them from a pre-made mix.

Tips on making this healthy piña colada recipe:

  1. Make sure the pineapple juice is made of 100% juice and that the ingredient list is only “organic pineapple juice”. I found a great juice from a company called Lakewood Organic at my local grocery store.
  2. Make sure to use canned coconut cream without any preservatives. Even if the can says “all natural” or “organic”, it’s not enough. At least for the flavor. The absolute best tasting coconut cream is Savoy and there is only coconut and water inside of it.
    • For a recipe that is so reliant on coconut cream for it’s flavor, I think it’s really key to have a delicious tasting one. Savoy is the best. ( sorry for repeating this so often! but it makes a big difference in taste and texture )
  3. Put the canned coconut cream in the freezer in advance. It makes a difference!
  4. Using frozen pineapple is clutch. It makes the drink more slushy-like.
  5. Add as much or as little ice as you want. I personally like a lot.

Honestly, these All Natural Piña Coladas are SO simple– everything is done in less than 5 minutes– but so delicious!

I know this may be a big statement, and I mentioned it earlier, but these piña coladas are the most delicious ones that I’ve ever had. And I’ve had a few other people say the same thing!

I’ve found that the more natural a recipe, the more delicious, and this certainly is the case here!

All the ingredients in this recipe are Paleo and clean except for the rum. And that ingredient is optional. But when everything else in the recipe is natural, it makes adding a bit of rum not so bad.

Feel free to make yours virgin to keep them totally Paleo or add the rum of your choice.

I like the added kick of the rum, but I love virgin Piña Coladas just as much.

  1. I used Earth’s Choice – Organic Heavy Coconut Cream and coconut rhum, it’s wonderful !

    Thanks for the natural inspiration !!!5 stars

  2. You got so close and then recommended one of the most revolting, impure, industrially produced rums… Flor de Caña is a much better brand for the same style. Anything Jamaican is better also because by law, unlike in PR, they aren’t allowed to add caramel color or sweeteners. Bacardi gold has both! Otherwise thank you for the tips. And good recipe.4 stars

  3. Thank-you for sharing this recipe. I was wondering about the freezing cream of coconut…. is this simply to add to the slushiness?

    1. Yes it is to make the pina colada more slushy and frozen and less liquidy. But if you don’t mind it being less frozen, you don’t have to do it, it would still taste great! 🙂

  4. This sounds so refreshing right now, and easy to make. Thanks for sharing, I’ll be drinking one of these very soon 🙂

  5. I love finding healthy versions of my favorite food and beverages too. These Pina Coladas look fabulous. I will definitely be making a batch very soon!
