Frozen Coconut Mojito
Frozen Coconut Mojito Recipe – A creamy tropical cocktail that combines the appeal of a pina colada with refreshing mojito flavors of mint.
Pina Colada and Mojito in One Drink???
Crazy about mojitos? Crazy about Pina coladas? This creamy Frozen Coconut Mojito recipe is laced with coconut, yet offers the limey-mint quality we know and love!
There are certain beverages I can’t wait to start sipping once the weather is warm… Margaritas, pina colada variations, boozy tiki drinks with little umbrellas, and of course mojitos.
How to Choose Your Cocktail
There’s no better way to get your mind off a long tedious work-week than to splurge on a fruity cocktail with friends.
The problem is, I can never decide which drink to go with, and I’m too much of a light-weight to handle more than one. Maybe two.
So more often than not, I opt to go with a beverage that combines the appealing attributes of multiple cocktails so I can get the biggest bang for my buck, so to speak.
Today’s Frozen Coconut Mojito is just such a beverage.
Coconut Mojito Recipe Two Ways:
- Frozen: It’s essentially a mojito. Yet it’s made with coconut rum instead of white rum, then sweetened with cream of coconut instead of simple syrup.
Oh yes, then it’s blended with ice instead of poured over ice for a cool silky finish.
- Iced: You can skip the blending. Instead, pour this delicious mixture over ice. Pop a lime wedge on the rim of the glass, stir it all together, and you have one great cocktail.
The Best Mojito Recipe
In one simple recipe, you get the texture and coconutty creaminess of a pina colada, with the quintessential flavor of a mojito, and little bits of fresh mint speckled throughout.
Boozy tropical heaven!
If you close your eyes while sipping, you can almost imagine your toes in the sand and gentle waves crashing in the distance.
Frozen Coconut Cocktail For All Occasions
This Frozen Coconut Mojito is a marvelous beverage to serve on girls-night-in, at a neighborhood party, or at a Sunday afternoon picnic.
If you plan to make this Frozen Coconut Mojito recipe for a crowd, make sure to buy a big bag of ice. It goes fast!
- Cream of Coconut – Sweet coconut cream often used in mixed drinks.
- Coconut Rum – Coconut flavored rum to double the coconut flavor.
- Fresh Lime Juice – Fresh citrus juice makes a huge difference, don’t buy bottled juice.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Frozen Mojito?
A frozen mojito is a drink that is blended up with ice giving it a slushy consistency. It’s often more like a treat than just a drink.
Do Mojitos Have Salt?
No, there are some drinks that might benefit from having a salt or sugar rim, but this frozen mojito does not need one. A regular mojito does not benefit from a salt rim either.
What Is The Best Rum For Mojitos?
In a classic mojito, white rum would be best, (like Bacardi). For this frozen coconut mojito, we use coconut rum, (like Malibu).

Added some shaved coconut in the blender and toasted some for topping.
Served in vintage parfait glasses.
I saw this recipe on a friends Facebook post, sounded so good! So, I bought the ingredients to make it one night when we had company for dinner. It was so good!!! I love how all the flavors blend together. In the last 4 weeks I have made this drink about 4 times, can’t get enough. I made a virgin version on it using Meyer lemonade instead of the vodka, it too was yummy!!
It is the excellent refreshing drink I have ever tasted. Really appreciate your effort and thanks for sharing the recipe. I will definitely add this as a welcome drink for my upcoming guest.
This is a refreshing recipe I made for Memorial Day. Next time, I think I’ll add more mint leaves. Because it was so tasty, I drank it too fast.
What a fascinating article. Thanks for sharing.

Drinking this now…it is delicious! We are vacationing in September and this will definitely be my new beach drink. Thank you for sharing!
It is really amazing article. Much appreciated.
Absolutely amazing. I used 3 oz of Bacardi white rum and 3 oz of Coconut rum instead of the 4 oz of coconut rum to give it a bit more kick. For the 4 oz of cream of coconut I did the Coco Lopez alternative (400ml of full fat coconut milk and 1.75 cups of sugar & a pinch of salt over low heat until sugar dissolves then put in a mason jar in fridge once cooled. And finally use real lime juice! This drink is absolutely refreshing!
Made this for Memorial Day it is so refreshing. We have lots of mint right now in our garden I think I’ll add more mint leaves next time. The only drawback is I drank it too fast it was so tasty
This is by far the best mojito I ever had. Instead of coconut rum, I used regular white rum and it was still so delicious! This is a must try!
Great recipe! Thank you!

I don’t know whether to kiss you or slap you for this recipe. I seriously want one everyday since I made this on Sunday. I already loved mojitos but frozen with the mint blended in and the almost creamy slush consistency is perfect for the Arizona heat. Sub in normal white rum for higher proof fun.
LOL! Chandra, please don’t slap me. ;)
I’m so glad you liked this recipe. It’s one of my favorites as well.
I make my coconut mix with coconut cream and coconut milk.
