What is the Paradise Drink?

The Paradise Drink takes the base used to make the Pineapple Passionfruit Refresher & mixes it with coconut milk instead of water for a creamy, tropical drink.. It's similar to the Pink Drink or the Dragon Drink in that it's a Refresher with coconut milk.


1)  Pineapple Passionfruit Base (recipe provided) 2) Sweetened Coconut Milk 3) Ice 3) Freeze-Dried Pineapple Pieces

Base Ingredients:

– Water – Granulated Sugar – Fresh Pineapple – Passionfruit Powder – Green coffee extract powder – Citric Acid

Put 1 ¼ cup water, sugar, & pineapple in medium-size saucepan & bring to a boil.

Make Base

Once boiling, lower heat & let simmer for 15 mins, until mixture has thickened a bit & fruit is breaking down.

Make Base

Strain into a bowl,  pressing down on pineapple to extract as much juice as possible. Return syrup to saucepan over low heat.

Make Base

Stir passionfruit powder, green coffee extract, & citric acid into syrup until mostly combined.

Make Base

Don't worry if the passionfruit powder doesn't fully blend in & there are some small clumps.

Pour mixture back into bowl or into large mason jar & let cool. Syrup will continue to thicken as it cools.

Make Base

Add remaining 1 cup water & mix well to combine. Keep in fridge until ready to use.
