Pina Colada Lush Cake Recipe - Family Fresh Meals

Whew, it’s hot! The weather has been positively tropical. Makes me feel like sitting out on a sandy beach, sipping a piña colada.

Unfortunately, that’s not really an option, since even in the summertime we have too much other stuff going on. But if I can’t have the beach, I can still have the piña colada – in cake form!

This Pina Colada Lush Cake has that magical blend of pineapple and coconut that makes you feel like you’ve been whisked away to the tropics. And it’s also perfect for summer because it’s a no-bake cake – so you don’t have to heat up your kitchen to make it.

Then pop it in the fridge to chill for a few hours, and it’ll be cool, creamy, and ready to slice when dinner is over.

Digging your fork into those layers of creamy, coconutty, pineapple-y goodness is the next best thing to being whisked away to a tropical beach. Sing it with me: If you like piña coladas….

Directions:

  1. Prepare a 8×8 baking dish. If you would like to lift the bars out of the dish, I would suggest lining the pan with a sheet of foil or parchment paper. In a large food processor, add the oreos and butter and pulse them until fully grounded up and combined.
