Fruity Summer Drinks: Strawberry Pineapple Colada

Sharing is caring!

These days, with the weather finally starting to heat up, we’re outside a lot. We entertain quite a bit in the summer, and we also have family visiting right now. Naturally, one of our favorite places to hang out is by the pool!

I find myself craving fruit in the summertime…to me, there’s really nothing better than a fruity summer drink to enjoy on the beach or the pool when it’s hot outside! So it probably won’t surprise you that the common theme of my collection is fruity flavors! You’ll find both cocktails and “mocktails” in this collection of fruity summer drinks…a little something for everyone! I hope you’ll click on the collection above …I promise you will not be disappointed!

While we were sitting poolside the other day, my sister in law and I decided that we were in the mood for a fruity cocktail, so I whipped this up in the blender with what we had in the house. The tropical flavors of strawberry, pineapple and coconut hit the spot! It was delicious, and you can definitely omit the alcohol to make a wonderful “mocktail” as well.

I love fruit in the summer as well! Well, anytime, but more in the summer. I don't do drinks that often though. I just eat it whole. I guess I'm lazy like that. :)

This is perfect for tonight - a rare warm summer's evening in Scotland. Thanks for the recipe - I usually use canned pineapple but frozen will be so much better! :-)
