During my trip to the Bahamas I ingested a total of zero Piña Coladas. NOT…A…SINGLE…ONE! The painful realization occurred to me on the drive back home. I turned on the radio and was embraced by an all too familiar tune…one that you are probably humming at this very moment. Dum, dum, dum…”If you like Piña Coladas, and getting caught in the rain…”
Rupert Holmes wrote a song about infidelity and that was shadowed by the sheer awesomeness that is the Piña Colada. Did you even know that that was what the song was about?
This is my way to mend that pain and fill the void. I was playing with cool whip and pudding mix not too long ago for The Grey Stuff and decided to do the same here but with the flavors of a Piña Colada. I’m not one to toot my own horn…but TOOT TOOT!!! This deliciousness was born! It’s sweet, chewy, crunchy, mildly tart and oh so seductively creamy!
Join me in making this tropical treat. It’s insultingly easy to make. All of the ingredients are found in the baking isle of your local grocery store (excluding the cook whip). That is found in the frozen Isle. This Piña Colada Parfait will take you no more than 5 minutes to make*. Seriously. Go and cheat on your routine choice of parfait with this stunning beauty**.
*You do have to wait a grueling 2-3 hours before eating though. Sigh.
**Here at feedingthefiya, we do not support cheating on your partner. Food, yes. Partner, definitely not. If in the event that your partner doesn’t like Piña Coladas then it is understandable. Not supported. Just understandable.
