Strawberry Colada

Prep: 10 minutes
Makes: about 8 cups

1 package (16 ounces) fresh strawberries
16 ounces (2 cups) unsweetened pineapple juice, chilled
6 ounces (about 2/3 cup) cream of coconut
3 cups ice cubes

1.Hull and quarter enough strawberries to yield 2 cups (about 12 ounces); reserve remaining strawberries for garnish.

2.In blender, add half of quartered strawberries, 1 cup pineapple juice and 1/3 cup cream of coconut; purée until strawberries are finely chopped. Add half of ice and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve garnished with whole strawberries. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Helpful Tips:
> Cream of coconut is a smooth, thick liquid made from coconuts and sugar. Do not confuse it with unsweetened coconut milk which is used in savory recipes.
> Add light or gold rum for an adult version. Note: consistency will be thinner; add additional ice as necessary.
