This is a classic little recipe that I’ve dug out from our archives and refreshed for National Piña Colada Day. Though it’s rare that I’ll indulge in the classic beverage, I do enjoy a good virgin piña colada smoothie now and then. This deliciously kid-friendly version is a hybrid between my typical unsweetened all-fruit blend and the more indulgent libation.
