Easy and Delicious Frozen Strawberry Colada Recipe

Strawberry Colada Recipe

strawberry-colada-recipe

I absolutely love a good frozen cocktail and this Frozen Strawberry Colada Recipe is probably one of my new favorites. It has such a creamy, delicious strawberry coconut flavor.

Ingredients:

All you will need is a blender and these ingredients….

Directions:

Mix 2 oz Captain Morgan Coconut rum with 5 oz Master of Mixes Strawberry Margarita/Colada mix and enough ice to get the consistence you like.  I like mine a little thick so I used 4 cups of ice. If I was serving these at a party I would slice a strawberry to put on the side of the glass as a garnish.

Trust me, this drink will not disappoint !
