Tropical Slush with Pineapple, Coconut, and Lime

This Tropical Slush is DELICIOUS! It is the perfect vacation drink. Can’t you just imagine sipping on this sweet slush by the side of the pool? I love it because it is like a Pina Colada with the coconut and pineapple flavors but it also had a hint of lime!

Dressed up or down

We like to serve these in hollowed out pineapples to make them even more fun. But you can definitely make them in a regular cup if you are short on time. If I make them without the real pineapple, I still like to add a slice of pineapple and cherry and a colorful straw. It’s also fun to add cute colorful paper umbrellas.

Great for a couple or a crowd

This recipe makes a BIG batch so it is great for parties or a Hawaiian Luau! It makes enough for about 20 people so it will serve a pretty good crowd. But be warned, people tend to go back for second and third helpings of this yummy drink. So expand the recipe to fit the size — and thirstiness — of your gathering. If you are making these for a smaller group, or just your family, you may want to half or quarter the recipe. You can also make a full batch and freeze what you don’t need. Then you can spoon some out on a random day and pretend that you are back on vacation!

Switch it up

Using the same basic recipe, you can swap various flavors in and out to meet your preferences or allergies. If coconut doesn’t work for your family, try using another flavor like raspberry. Or, leave the coconut out. In this case, the drink will lose some of its creamy flavor and texture. However, if you want to keep the creamy, but ditch the coconut, try using heavy cream or sweetened condensed milk. Just add a little until it tastes right.

How many stars would you give this recipe?


  1. This sounds so yum!!Is there anything else I can use instead of 7up? I am pregnant and not drinking any sodas at the moment. Will a lemon-y sparkling water of some sort work?

    1. I think it would work with lemon sparkling water! It might not be quite as sweet, but I think it would still turn out!

  2. How many servings does this make? I want to whip this up for my boyfriend and I, but I don’t want to end up with too much if we can’t save the rest for later.

    1. This recipe makes 20-24 servings, so you would need to cut it down by quite a bit. If you want to make it just for two, try this:
      1 cup lime sherbet
      1 cup pineapple sherbet
      1 cup 7-up
      1 Tbsp frozen pineapple juice
      1 Tbsp frozen limeade
      1 1/2 Tbsp Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut

      This will make 1 1/2 cups of slush for each of you. If you want more you can double this recipe. Enjoy!

    1. hmmm… you could possibly substitute with another flavor like raspberry. Or you can leave it our all together. It just adds a creaminess to it– I am sure you could leave it out!

  3. This looks fantastic! I may try it out for a party this weekend. I just wanted to clarify…when you say frozen pineapple juice and frozen limeade, are you talking about the frozen concentrates? Just want to make sure I have the right ratios. Thank you!

    1. Would love to try this, it looks delish!!! But I am wondering the same thing as the lady above … Are you talking frozen concentrates?
