Pina colada (non alcoholic)

I tasted Pina colada recently in our friends house. Me and my husband like it instantly. My husband was in search of Pina colada in stores and we bought one. It tasted good but not the same. When I saw ingredients, it said in soy milk. So I thought of making my own using coconut milk. It surely came almost similar to what we had. You to give a try and you will love it.
