Banana Piña Colada is a cool & tropical virgin Piña Colada recipe w/ the addition of banana. Recipes for both mocktail and alcoholic versions here.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We spent the weekend before peeling through my Pinterest boards & making our final decisions on what we want to try to accomplish this summer as far as the house is concerned.
We ordered a bunch of stuff & this week most of it arrived. So this weekend we were knee-deep in projects – which I love.

Building a new house is like starting off with a clean slate. I have more projects than we could reasonably accomplish in a year’s time. I’m completely overwhelming the hubs with thoughts, ideas & plans.
But you see – we were the first to build this model house on our street. We were the first house here.
Then the builder proceeded to add the same model every second or third house all the way up & down the street. If I had known that – I would have picked a different model.
I like to be different & now I’m going into overdrive to make my house stand out from the rest.
So anyhow…….at the end of our long days working on things I whipped up this Banana Piña Colada for us to enjoy. I just had to share it here with you all for the 2nd week of Mocktail Monday.

We were exhausted after all the things we were trying to cram into 2 short days. I absolutely can’t wait to share it all with you.
It’s going to be a great summer packed full of really cool stuff. Each year we will continue to work on the house to get it just right.
So many plans – now I just need to figure out how to extend our weekends. I see a whole lot more of these refreshing bevies to enjoy out in the yard once we are done.
Here are some commonly asked questions
What type of cream of coconut?
So, this isn’t going to be your usual coconut milk or coconut cream that you would use for healthy recipes. You want the cream of coconut that is sweetened & made for drink recipes.
Can I leave out the banana?
You sure can. Since the frozen banana acts like ice & helps to make this slushy, you will want to increase the ice to compensate for that.
What type of blender should I use?
Well, I highly recommend something with some power behind it. I really love my Ninja for this recipe.
What’s in a pina colada…
- frozen banana
- pineapple chunks with juice
- cream of coconut
- pineapple for garnish
- maraschino cherries for garnish
How can I make this an alcoholic version cocktail?
That is easy. Just add 2oz of rum to the blender when mixing this drink.
HOW DO YOU MAKE a Banana Piña Colada?
- Combine all ingredients except additional pineapple & cherry garnish in a blender.
- Blend on high until smooth & slushy.
- Pour into your favorite cocktail glass – I chose martini glasses for this one.
- Garnish with additional pineapple & cherry if desired.
- Enjoy immediately.
- *this makes enough for 3-4 servings in these martini glasses (obviously serving size depends on your chosen glass)

Can this recipe be doubled?
You bet! If you are making this for a party, doubling is always recommended.
What is the best way to store leftover pina coladas?
Well, since this is a frozen drink, I don’t advise trying to keep this for a long time. This recipe is best served immediately.

I love seeing all your Pins of ideas! We are knee deep in garden projects and are attempting a larger garden this year in our postage stamp sized backyard. I would love one of these drinks on my patio after long gardening hours.
What a shame to have this happen to your new home. Of course you would want yours to be different from everyone else! I am sure you will make your spectacular!
