Pina Colada Fruit Dip is the perfect creamy dessert dip to make during the summer. A mix of piña colada flavors of coconut, pineapple and rum, this adults-only sweet dip is one that’s hard not to eat by the spoonful. If you love sippin’ on some tasty pina coladas, you’re going to love this fruit dip!
I do have a special appreciation and fondness for dessert dips since there’s no baking required and you end up with the perfect, sweet, and refreshing treat.
No bake desserts, like Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats are a great way to make a dessert without having to turn the oven on and heat up the house, especially helpful in the hot, humid summers!
You can compliment this sweet dessert dip with this yummy strawberry and cream cheese fruit dip too.
Fruit Dips are great to bring to potlucks, a summer barbecue party, or just hanging out by the pool when you need a perfect sweet treat. Grab a few piña colada jello shots to enjoy while dunking your favorite dippers into this perfect fruit dip.
Piña Colada Fruit Dip Recipe Ingredients
WHIPPED TOPPING: the smaller 8-ounce tub of cool whip is all you need for this recipe. You can also mix some marshmallow creme in with the whipped topping and cream cheese to make an even more decadent dip
RUM: I used Captain Morgan Private Stock Rum, but a coconut or pineapple flavored rum would go extremely well in this piña colada fruit dip.
COCONUT MILK: I used coconut milk for this recipe and like how it came out each time I tested it. However, I have seen some other recipes that use cream of coconut or coconut cream. While I haven’t tested those ideas in this recipe, if it sounds like something you wanna try, you can give them a whirl the next time you go to make this yummy dip.
CREAM CHEESE: I used the regular cream cheese spread but you can use the whipped cream cheese if that’s your favorite.
CRUSHED PINEAPPLE: Canned crushed pineapple brings that fantastic pineapple flavor to this dip. Make sure to chill it first so it’s good and cold.
MARASCHINO CHERRY: the perfect garnish to your piña colada, just like you would garnish this creamy piña colada drink
COCONUT FLAKES: Included in the fruit dip mix, then you can add as little or as much as you like for garnishing on top.
DIPPING OPTIONS: Fresh fruit such as pineapple, strawberries (of course!) and wafers or cookies.
How to Make Easy Piña Colada Fruit Dip
STEP 1: In a medium bowl combine the whipped topping, cream cheese, chilled crushed pineapple and coconut milk. Mix together
STEP 2: Add 6 ounces of the coconut flakes to your mixing bowl, ensuring that you leave some for garnish later.
STEP 3: Add a shot of spiced rum and mix well.
STEP 4: Pour the dip in the serving bowl and add the remaining coconut flakes and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Step 5: Then get cute with it! Dress up your pina colada fruit dip like you would a pina colada drink! Add a couple tropical drink umbrellas and a festive straw.
Can I Make it Without Rum?
Of course! If you need to make this dip kid-friendly, simply omit the rum. It’s still going to taste fantabulous.
