How to Make Pina colada

Pina colada is a popular dessert in many Southeast Asian countries. It's a simple yet delicious treat that is perfect for hot summer days. Here is a recipe to make this refreshing and creamy dessert at home.

Pina colada is a cocktail made with white rum, pineapple juice and lemon juice. With a piece of pineapple or a cherry as the finishing touch, Pina Colada can make people enjoy the atmosphere of the Caribbean. "pina colada" means "pineapple-rich valley" in Spanish. The cocktail was born in Miami and spread to other countries at the end of its popularity in the United States.





rice flour

1 cup

coconut milk

1 can


1 cup


1/2 cup


A pinch

Pandan leaves (optional)



configuration tool

Juice machine


measuring cup

ice clip

ice bucket




In a mixing bowl, mix together the rice flour and water until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps.


In a saucepan, add the coconut milk, sugar, and salt. If you have pandan leaves, tie them into a knot and add them to the pan.


Heat the coconut milk mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.


Add the rice flour mixture to the saucepan and stir continuously until the mixture thickens and turns into a smooth paste.


Pour the mixture into a greased dish or mold and let it cool to room temperature.


Once cooled, chill the pudding in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until it is set.


To serve, cut the pudding into small squares or scoop it out with a spoon.



Modulation Technique:

You can also use the wine glass when making it, and directly hollow out the coconut and open a small half to make a cup, so that the drink will be even more "unstoppable by the coconut wind". Instead of buying pineapples and cherries, use orange slices and mint instead. The tropical style is missing. This wine should be made in a large-capacity glass.



Pina colada is a simple yet delicious dessert that is perfect for any occasion. The creamy texture and subtle sweetness make it a crowd-pleaser among both adults and children. Give this recipe a try and enjoy a taste of Southeast Asia from the comfort of your own home!
