I may or may not be starting an obsession with fruity agua frescas. It started with my Kiwi Cucumber Agua Fresca and now I’m bringing you another delicious tropical flavor. I’m a HUGE pina colada fan. Huge. One of my absolute favorite things to sip on anytime I am on a cruise vacation is a virgin pina colada. I try to limit myself to only one a day, because while they are delicious I know good and well that they are PACKED with sugary goodness. That’s what I love about this agua fresca: no artifical colors, soda, sherbet, or ice cream. Two ingredients: pineapple & coconut water. Does it get any easier than that?
With the help of my Blendtec Designer 625 Blender I was able to whip this up in a matter of minutes. Really, it only took 30 seconds – the other minute or two comes from slicing and dicing your fresh pineapple. Today kicks off National Food Allergy Awareness Week. While I am fortunate enough to not suffer from food allergies, I know there are many out there that do. In my research of coconut being considered a ‘tree nut’ here what I found: “Coconut is not a botanical nut; it is classified as a fruit, even though the Food and Drug Administration recognizes coconut as a tree nut. While allergic reactions to coconut have been documented, most people who are allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut.”. *If you do happen to be allergic to coconut, a Pineapple Agua Fresca would be just as tasty, simply replace the coconut water with plain water!
Pina Colada Agua Fresca
- 1 pineapple cubed
- 32 oz. coconut water I used a pineapple coconut water
Add ingredients to your blender. Blend for 30 seconds. Pour juice through a strainer to remove excess pulp. Serve cold or over ice. Enjoy!

I am allergy to shrimp. I would love to try making soups with the blender.
Gluten and I don’t get along, and as much as it saddens me, dairy and I don’t get along either! I would love to make vegan sauces and dressings with a Blendtec :)
I don’t have any food allergies but I would love to make some chocolate shakes.
wow this looks so refreshing..perfect for our already 90 degree plus weather..I have no allergies to food.
First thing to try is your getting started into green smoothies your recipe..then, this one, and your pineapple, and green apple too…many great recipes here on your site!

Lucky me, no allergies here. I have a new Turkish Hazelnut Blended Cold Brew Coffee recipe that I am ready to try!
Oh my word that sounds amazing! I’d love for you to share the recipe if you don’t mind!!!
This pina colada sounds extremely interesting!
hi, i am severely allergic to all nuts, have been my entire life, love the recipes, thanks
Love this pina colada aqua fresca idea. Thanks.
Yum! This looks delicious. My favorite agua fresca is watermelon. :)
That’s definitely on my list to make this summer!
I can’t eat mango but everything else is fair game ????
I’d make the Sunny D slush – I don’t have to follow a special diet but I do watch what I eat/drink
Yum! Love this idea!
Thankfully, I have no food allergies. I love pineapple and coconut. Sooo tropical and tasty! This recipe is a simple 2-ingredients, too! <3
This sounds wonderful! I do not have any known food allergies or intolerances. However I am working to greatly diversify our diet, to incorporate a wide variety of whole, nutritious, mostly plant foods. This will serve to decrease the amounts of the few foods–wheat, soy, corn, dairy–that dominate the SAD.
This looks so delicious and refreshing :)
I am lactose intolerant, but I cannot quit all dairy… I try to avoid it when possiblr though. I am also allergic to cherries :( this is my dream blender! Ah so I am crossing my fingers so I can make lots of nut butter and smoothies!
This looks so good and refreshing!! So does your kiwi cucumber agua fresca. I will definitely be sipping on these this summer!!
Thank you so much! agua frescas are my new favorite thing! So delicious and SO easy!
I don’t have any food allergies…. but lots of my family and friends do! I’m excited to make different soups for when they come over
