Pina Colada Delight


A creamy blend of coconut, pineapple and rum.  This has to be one of the most popular cocktails worldwide, with a name meaning "strained pineapple".  Pina Colada was introduced August 16, 1954 and has been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978. This is my inspiration for making this drink into a dessert using Cream Cheese and Instant Pudding. This will impress your guest at any cocktail party. Enjoy !





 
Prep Time:10
Chilling Time:15- 20
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Pina Colada Mix
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 package Instant Vanilla Pudding (Sugar Free -Fat Free)
  • 8 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese (whipped)
  • 1 cup fresh Pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons Rum or Rum flavor if desired

 Step One
 
In blender, combine pina colada mix, coconut milk, and vanilla pudding. Blend well, then add cream cheese, fresh pineapple and rum. Blend until smooth and pudding is starting to set.

 Step Two 

Pour Pina Colada Delight into cocktail glasses and let chill for about 15 - 20 minutes. When ready to serve, garnish with pineapple chucks and maraschino cherries
