Not Quite a Pina Colada

A pina colada without the rum (below left), but still tasting deliciously creamy and looking every bit as good as the real thing.

This recipe is from Delia's Complete Christmas Magazine 2004


Begin by adding all the ingredients (except the cherries and pineapple wedges) to a blender and whiz everything together for 1-2 minutes, until frothy and smooth.

Serve over ice in tumblers and decorate each glass with a glacé cherry and a pineapple wedge (you could even add an umbrella if you feel so inclined!).
