Extra thick, ice-cold and creamy, this papaya twist on pina colada is a refreshing, vitamin packed drink. Enjoy it as a morning smoothie or pour in some rum for a tropical party cocktail.

Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste




  • 1 medium papaya
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks (I used canned but fresh should do too)
  • 2 cups light coconut milk (canned)
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener of choice
  • optional: 2 ounces rum
  • coconut flakes for garnish


  1. Peel and roughly chop the papaya.
  2. Put all ingredients (except for the coconut flakes) in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Divide in two glasses, garnish.
  4. Enjoy!


If you don't want to open a second can of coconut milk (my cans always have 400ml), you can use just one and sub some almond or soy milk for the rest.
