Notes

TIP: You can garnish your pina colada with a slice of pineapple or toasted coconut flakes. If using toasted coconut flakes, I would advise you to keep an eye on the pan during toasting, as coconut tends to burn very quickly. Once toasted, transfer the coconut flakes to a plate and allow them to cool. To decorate, dip the top of your glasses in water then dip into the toasted coconut. Freeze the glass so the decoration sets.
Storage and making ahead
This drink is best consumed immediately. Whenever I can, I try to serve my low-carb pina colada in chilled glasses, decorated with some toasted coconut flakes or sliced pineapple pieces. I do not recommend making the cocktail ahead as the creamy part tends to separate from the rest of the liquid in the drink.
