Who knew that one little cocktail could inspire SO many mouthwatering desserts? There’s something about a piña colada’s tropical combination of coconut and pineapple that drives everyone crazy. Perhaps it’s the mental state of being sent to paradise, with one sip or bite of a delicious treat. Yep, I’m going with that theory.
Just seeing all of these piña colada desserts—like piña colada cakes, piña colada popsicles and piña colada dessert cocktails—can put you in a beachy mood. Can you imagine a whole week filled with every one of these tropical treats? Who needs the Caribbean beachfront home, or lounging in the sand, sipping on a piña colada on an island, when you can just whip up one of these piña-flavored sweets at home.
While I would definitely love to be at the beach right now, surrounded by nothing but white sands and clear, blue ocean, lying under a palm tree, I’m going to enjoy a Strawberry Pina Colada Lava Flow in the meantime. Or, maybe a refreshing bowl of Pineapple Coconut Frozen Yogurt or Piña Colada Bars.
And on that note, I’m off to find paradise in my backyard. Enjoy these 17 best piña colada recipes—especially on Piña Colada Day, July 10th!
