Virgin Malibu Pineapple


It's Friday and a long weekend is ahead.Yippee!. I don't want to think about what is waiting for me when I return to work and "life". As you are reading this post, I am probably on the road with my mind lingering else where. I know you will probably be the same and busy getting ready for your weekend activities. So, I would like to make a quick post as with the regular Friday post I always try to share a simple yet fun drink for the weekend.

I'm a light weight when it comes to drinking. My favorite drink is Malibu Pineapple as it's light and fruity to suit my taste buds. Last week, I tried to make a virgin version of it. It's so refreshing with fresh juice. I went to Whole Foods looking for rose water to try a cookie recipe from Lazaro and I found a good looking organic pineapple and also a young coconut there. It's about time for another experiment.

I had received a bottle of agave from Xagave a little while back but hadn't gotten the chance to explore it until now. I tried it with this beverage and the result was satisfying. I only used 2 teaspoons instead of a 1/4 cup of syrup the mixture called for.

The fun idea was to create pineapple sorbet ice cubes. They are like sorbet ice cream and I can eat them by themselves! If you have different ice trays, please try it. It will add a flair to the cubes! Hope you enjoy the drink and the weekend.

Virgin Malibu Pineapple for 2

1 cup coconut juice
2 tsp Xagave
1/4 tsp kosher salt
2 oz pineapple juice mixture (recipe below)
1 tbsp coconut meat
4 ice cubes
6 pineapple ice cubes (recipe below)

  • Pour coconut juice in a blender, add pineapple juice mixture, Xagave, salt, and ices in a blender
  • Blend on "liquefy" or until mix
  • Add coconut meat and pulse 3 times
  • Pour into a glass and add pineapple ice cubes

Pineapple ice cubes:

1 pineapple
2 tsp Xgave
small pinch of salt

  • Peel, core, and cut pineapple in cubes
  • Add to a blender, then add Xgave, and salt. Puree it
  • Sift it through a strainer. Discard any remains in a strainer. Save 2 oz. and set aside
  • Pour the juice to ice trays and put in a freezer until it forms to an ice. 1 pineapple can fill 1 ice tray

Happy 4th of July!

pour me a glass!

The Housewife said...

I'm following the drink recipes closely! Since I'm off the alcohol, this is perfect for me... I love the flavors of pineapple and coconut! Yumm!

roxan said...

Althought i'm still using my space heater, the weather is finally starting to warm up here and that drink would be perfect for the afternoons! :)
Have fun on your vacation, hope you're going somewhere wildly romantic. As for me, I'm spending the weekend with the in-laws.

Pacheco Patty said...

Beautiful photo! Let me just make my self comfortable by the pool before I pour myself a glass of your virgin Malibu pineapple! Love the name, how fun:-)Happy 4th!

Monet said...

Those pineapple ice cubes sound of this world. I am a light weight too when it comes to drinking, but I think something like this would be perfect after a long and hot week.

Tanantha P. said...

Le, i can mix it with Soju for you hehe

Mo said...

How wonderful, especially with the pineapple ice cubes!

denise @ quickies on the dinner table said...

Oh I LOVE this! You are brilliant Tanantha! Really nifty idea for the puree cubes - gezz, which I'd thought of it LOL

I could go through a whole pitcher!

lostpastremembered said...

I would probably add rum... but mmm that looks so refreshing!

Rick said...

I could go for this. But not a virgin version.

Mary said...

This looks deliciously refreshing. This is my first visit to your blog, so I've spent some time reading your earlier entries. I'm so glad I did. I really like your recipes and the welcoming tone of your blog. I'll be back often. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Stella said...

Oh Tanantha! This sounds so wonderful, and you put a lot of thought into making it that way (wonderful). I would love one, and it's only 11 in the morning here. Oh wait, it's virgin so that's cool (smile)...

lequan@luvtoeat said...

Hey Tanantha, I'm a light weight when it comes to drinking too, especially when it comes to exploding flavorful fruity drinks like this. I'm ok with a bit of alcohol but I feel adding too much actually ruins the fruity taste so I definitely enjoy virgin drinks over spiked up ones.

I love what you did with the ice cubes. You don't have to worry about them diluting your drink either - genius! And such beautiful pictures too. Wonderful creation Tanantha!

the domestic mama said...

ooo- looks so good,I however, may add a splash of rum. YUM!

Magdalena said...

Beautiful, summer drink for hot days ... only a pity, that pineapples are quite expensive here in Poland during the summer... but at least I can look at eat and enjoy in my mind ( I am sipping just cold beer is very hot this weekend)

Magic of Spice said...

Great photos, and the drink looks amazingly refreshing!

sweetlife said...

what a perfect summer cocktail, I love it...oh great pic..stunning


Biren said...

Sounds like a wonderful drink! I like the idea of the ice cubes.

Lawyer Loves Lunch said...

This looks like a lighter, fresher pina colada! And I just love the idea of the ice cubes because they won't even dilute the drink as they melt :)

Judy said...

Now THAT looks refreshing, Tanantha! I don't drink alcohol so this would be puuuurfect for me! :) Hope you enjoyed your holiday! BTW, I think we have the same place mats - LOL.

Stella said...

Hi Sweet Tanantha,
Thanks for the F.B. page thing-didn't know one could do that!?! I need to play around on F.B. more.
p.s. I love ramen! I just never went through a dependency phase really (smile)...

citronetvanille said...

Oh sounds like a pina colada! hmmm pineapple and coconut, I feel like I am going on vacation...maybe in Hawaii? Lovely drink.

Anncoo said...

WOW! The color is so pretty and looks so refreshing..

Chef Dennis said...

what a perfect summer drink, you really outdid yourself even the ice sounds so very tasty, and healthy!
thanks so much for sharing!!!

Sophia said...

Wow, great job here. Awesome picture too! You should really consider submitting this to Recipe4Living's Summertime Sipper Contest! It looks delicious!

Anonymous said...

This looks great! I'm a light weight too, so I love that it's virgin :)

Spicie Foodie said...

Oh Tanatha this sounds just perfect! I'm not a "light weight" when it comes to drinking but when it's hot outside I try to stay away from alcohol, so I'm loving your virgin drink. Now on a hunt for ingredients I go :)

I think that everything published was actually very reasonable.
But, think about this, what if you added a little information?
I ain't saying your content is not solid., but what if you added something that makes people want more? I mean "Virgin Malibu Pineapple" is kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write news headlines to get people to open the links.
You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
