Hawaiian Sunrise

I love a recipe that is delicious and beautiful. (It’s like dating someone who is smart AND good looking.) Because, let’s be honest, some recipes just aren’t beautiful to look at. But they sure taste good. It’s like in high school when I used to go on and on about how cute guys were. My dad used to say to me that I’d marry a bum but he’d sure be cute. Thank goodness you can have the best of both worlds with this recipe.


I really should call this recipe “Hawaiian sunset” because, if you read the rooster post you’d know I’m not really a morning person. I’ve probably only seen three sunrises in my life. I’ve seen thousands of sunsets, though. Either way, you’ve got a beautiful mix of red/orange/yellow colors. And in this drink too! Aloha!!


3/4 c pineapple juice

1 1/2 c pineapple sherbet

3 T cream of coconut

5 strawberries

2 t grenadine syrup


Blend pineapple juice, sherbet, and cream of coconut until smooth. Pour out half into separate container. Set aside. Add strawberries and syrup to remaining mixture. Blend until smooth again. With the first container in one hand and the second mixture in the other, pour from opposite sides at the same time into glass. Colors should blend together in the middle of the glass, creating a sunrise effect.

    Sounds delish. I’ve never heard of cream of coconut before. Where do you find that?

      Cream of coconut (and also the grenadine syrup) can be found in the mixed drinks aisle. Usually cream of coconut is found in a can, but I found a squeeze bottle with a flip-top lid at Wal-Mart recently . . . makes it easier to use a little and store the rest for later.
