The perfect Pineapple Daiquiri recipe!
If there ever was a drink that tasted like a tropical island, it’s THIS! This amazing Pineapple Daiquiri recipe is nothing short of spectacular.
It’s made with real fruit – pineapple and fresh squeezed lime juice (not some thick, syrupy mix), coconut cream and a generous amount of coconut rum.
Everything about this drink screams summer! It’s frosty cold, smooth and completely refreshing. So pull up your favorite lawn chair, apply an appropriate amount of sunscreen, grab your sunglasses, and blend up this delicious drink!
So, wanna know to make a frozen pineapple daiquiri? Check out the easy steps below.
What goes in a frozen daiquiri?
- Frozen pineapple – you can buy frozen, pre-cut pineapple in the frozen food section at the grocery store. Be sure to look for no-sugar added on the label. You can also use fresh pineapple – just be sure to freeze before hand. This will keep your drink extra cold and creamy.
- Fresh squeezed lime juice – resist the urge to buy bottled lime juice. Fresh-squeezed is so much more flavorful. So, go to the produce section and go grab a few limes.
- Coconut cream – you can find coconut cream (NOT coconut milk, or coconut water) in the International Foods section of the grocery store. You may also be able to find it where drink mixes are sold.
- Coconut rum – we tested standard white rum and coconut rum in this drink. Hands-down, the coconut rum was the runaway favorite of the two. We used Malibu rum, however, feel free to use any brand you prefer.
- Simple syrup – you actually make simple syrup by dissolving 1 part water into 1 part granulated sugar. Place the water and sugar into a sauce pan and bring to a low boil. Stir often to ensure the sugar properly dissolves. Once it comes to a low boil, remove from heat and let the syrup cool to room temperature. Simple syrup is a common ingredient in many cocktails – I like to keep a mason jar of this in my fridge for drinks like my Blueberry Coconut Mojitos and my Frosted Lemonade. I also have a great recipe for Mango Mojitos over at Real Housemoms that’s amazing!
- Ice – your freezer likely makes this for you. If it doesn’t, you probably need this drink more than any of us right now.

How do I make a daiquiri?
Here’s the beauty of this glorious tropical cocktail. All you have to do is place the ingredients in your blender, and blend until smooth.
To ensure all of the ingredients adequately puree, blend for at least 45-60 seconds or until completely incorporated.
Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy right away while icy cold.
Garnish your drink with fresh pineapple slices, lime slices, and/or a maraschino cherry. Mini cocktail umbrellas also add a nice touch to a tropical drink like this.
This is the Blender I use almost DAILY! Everything from smoothies, to cocktails, to waffle and muffin batter and even nut butter, this ultrapowerful blender creates an amazing puree every time. It’s very durable and made to last!
What glass is best for a frozen daiquiri?
The standard glass for this cocktail is a hurricane glass, however any larger glass will work well for this drink.

Anytime or anywhere – this drink is the ultimate summertime cocktail!
What type of rum should I use for a daiquiri?
This pineapple daiquiri recipe is great with coconut rum, like Malibu. Any white rum is great in this cocktail. I use Malibu in my Blueberry Coconut Mojitos, which have great coconut flavor!
