(Makes 6 servings)

Fresh coconut adds super fresh coconut taste. All you need is a tropical beach!


1 small coconut
1 cup non-dairy milk
1/4 cup rice syrup
2 cups pineapple chunks with juice, or about 1/2 of a large fresh pineapple
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
2 cups ice


Puncture eyes of coconut with an ice pick, pour out “milk” and place in blender. Crack coconut around its middle and remove shell. With a vegetable peeler, peel brown layer from meat. Roughly chop meat and add to blender with the milk. Blend on high speed to liquefy, about 1 minute. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, pressing liquid out of pulp with a rubber spatula. Squeeze remaining liquid from pulp by hand.

Rinse blender jar. Return coconut milk to blender and add remaining ingredients. Blend on highest speed till smooth, about 30 seconds. Serve immediately in large frosty glasses, garnished with paper umbrellas.
