Pina Colada Dip


Pina Colada Dip - only 4 ingredients and so creamy and good! | Cooking on the Front Burner #summer


I kind of feel like I want to break out in song "If you like pina coladas" but I won't - I'm not one who can carry a tune!  But I do want to sing praises for this Pina Colada Dip.  It only has 4 ingredients, comes together in 5 minutes and is soooo good.

Coconut and pineapple are some of my favorite combo of flavors - it really just reminds me of being on a beach with a tasty beverage in hand.  This version is non-alcoholic, though I suppose you could add a tad of rum to this but it really doesn't need it and keeps it kid friendly.  Besides fresh fruit, vanilla wafers make good dippers and the ones I found had real vanilla bean in them - great flavor and guess where I found them - yep Trader Joe's.  I keep plugging them but I really do shop there at least once a week (TJ's if you are reading this, I'd be happy to be an ambassador!)
