This weekend is going to be quite hectic and to be honest, I am pretty sure a Piña Colada on the patio at some point would taste mighty fine. I don't think
I have much time for relaxing though, so I will settle for a different type of Piña Colada with these No Bake Piña Colada Bites. I brought these to work this week for my usual taste testing and was told by several coworkers that these are by far their favorite of all of my bites and balls that I make. I will take that as a win!
They really are so refreshing and are a great treat. I always have some sort of energy bite around so that I have something to fill me up and keep me going between lunch and dinner. These sure do the trick. The toughest part for me is not munching through all of the dried pineapple before I add them into the food processor. Dried pineapple is by far my favorite dried fruit.
I would love to sit and chat a bit more, but like I said, I have a big weekend ahead, but I wanted to send you into Friday with a little something sweet! Enjoy!

I plan on making these today but would like to know if these freeze well.
Hi! Yes, I typically freeze half a batch and have had no issue. Enjoy!

I love coconut so these are essential for me to try lol. Can't wait to make them now.
I cannot wait to try these. Like you, I love dried pineapple and would have never though to put that into a bite like this. I love bars and bites made with dates and I think with the pineapple included in here it would make it a more moist consistency as opposed to some recipes that tend to be more dry.
The pineapple is key, I promise!

I just love all of your bite recipes! I make a pina colada bite recipe, but never thought to blend in macadamias - now that is some Hawaiian flavor love!
Yes! The macadamias are the game changer!

No bake + pina colada + energy = bite heaven! These look absolutely incredible and sounds delicious. I am loving that lemon flavor right now and I cannot wait to try these 🙂
Hope you love them!
I mean having a snack that tastes like pina colada means that it's always cocktail o'clock. I'm not mad about this
Ha, exactly Mimi! ???

These energ balls are the best to keep the energy going through the day, they look delicious
These look delicious, I love anything pina colada.
Same, especially the drink!
Amber Stanfield says
I love Pina coladas so I’m interested to make these and see how they compare for a quick sweet treat.
You could have a drink in one hand and a bite in the other! ??

I can't express enough how much I love these. I did use cashews in place of the macadamia nuts, but otherwise, followed right along. They're so tasty! Perfect for something to tide me over right after a run, or to enjoy before a weekend morning workout.
So glad you liked them Christina! I've made them with cashews as well and think they are amazing that way as well. Glad to know you are able to get some good fuel in with these!
