Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Frozen Dragon Fruit Pina Colada. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Fresh pineapple chunks are going to be more natural without any added preservatives. However, you can use canned pineapple if desired.

Frozen pink dragonfruit is going to add that lovely pink color. I always buy this frozen because it’s more cost efficient than fresh dragonfruit, also known as pitaya with pink flesh.

Use coconut milk from the can version coconut milk from a carton found in the milk section. The can version is going to be more traditional and have a much stronger coconut flavor.

A touch of agave adds sweetness, you can use simple syrup, honey or maple syrup. You may also leave it out if preferred.

Pineapple juice is needed to make this cocktail taste like a traditional pina colada. You can use pineapple juice from the can, or fresh pineapple juice.

Optional to add in white rum to make this a cocktail vs a mocktail.

Rimming the glass with toasted coconut is also optional, but strongly encouraged.
