Pretty good sauce. I didn't have pina colada, so I used a little coconut extract and a little extra sugar and pineapple. Used with some frozen breaded shrimp.

wasn't stoked about the sour cream, next time I might use vanilla yogurt, also not enough coconut flavor for my taste.

This was pretty good! It's very sweet -- my kids kept saying, "It tastes like ice cream!" -- but it's perfect for a summer BBQ. Since my family won't eat shrimp, I pan-seared some chunks of chicken, seasoned with a little garlic, salt and pepper. I served it with brown rice and a green salad, making a lovely, light meal on a hot summer day!

I thought this was VERY good!!! I sliced about 1/2 inch deep down one side of a pineapple (top to bottom) and scooped out the insides, then used the scooped out pineapple as a serving bowl for this sauce. I served this with coconut shrimp on platter...the presentation was lovely!

I didn't know how to rate this, really, because I had to variate greatly from the recipe. I just used this recipe as a guide and used what I had in the pantry. Instead of pina colada mix I used sweetened condensed milk. I omitted the sugar. I used reduced fat sour cream. Lastly, I squeezed the juice from one fresh lime in and viola!!! it was GREAT!
