It's August here in Algeria. And it's the hottest month of the year. Temperature today was 31°C - 87°F at 78% humidity. Really weather like this you don't feel like doing else expect relaxing. And in this sweltering heat, I beg the question is there anything better than sipping on a cool drink at the beach or on your rooftop terrace?

Finding this ripe pineapple inspired me to whizz up this forthy tropical sweet pineapple and coconut cocktail, halal style for us to enjoy. The usual piña colada is made with rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice, usually served either blended or shaken with ice. Of course, to make it halal I omitted the rum. But I also made it healthier by homemade coconut milk rather than any canned cream of coconut. It was an extremely delicious and even hefty drink that filled up right. Something that I will I'll be making on our fasting days, as well. 

A little backstory about:

According to WikiThe name piña colada literally means "strained pineapple", a reference to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple juice used in the drink's preparation.

Two Puerto Ricans invented this beverage, claiming to have first made it at the Caribe Hilton Hotel's Beachcomber Bar in San Juan in 1954. It has since then become the official drink of Puerto Rico and July 10 is known as "piña colada day" in the Caribbean.

So do you really need  an excuse to make this?
No!
Just do it.
You can thank me later.
