    I've never heard of a pina colada made with whipped cream! Usually they are made with cream of coconut.

    Cream of coconut comes in a can and is a sweetened product. Don't confuse it with canned coconut milk, which is different.

    Coco Lopez is the brand I am familiar with.

    What does the recipe call for?
    Without understanding what you are trying to accomplish, apparently, from what you have posted, the whipped cream is piped onto the top of the dish, correct?

    exactly, but it tasted like milk and the texture didn't feel right.

    my question is what is the best way to make the perfect cream to go with the dessert?

    Did she add any sugar to the cream?  Without sugar, cream just tastes... well, like milk.  Yeah, cream is a bit sweeter than milk but not significantly when using it in a dessert application.  Try whipping the cream in a cold metal bowl.  In fact, can't hurt to put the beater and bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes before whipping.  Make sure your cream is very cold too.  Whip it slowly at first (half speed) or your walls may wear a lot of it.  When it thickens, slowly add some sugar.  I like powdered sugar in my whipped cream but I've seen some chef throw granulated in there too. (Granulated does not dissolve in cold liquids so I've always found it a bit 'gritty' in whipped cream.)

    I doubt if it's what is happening, but just in case you don't know - overwhipping cream will separate it into butter and buttermilk. This is a long process by hand, but if you're using a mixer then it doesn't take long at all. I would suspect that your cream shouldn't be whipped until solid, only until it's thick enough to stay on a spoon.

    Stabilized Whipped Cream

    Will last for 3 days if kept cold. I like this recipe 'cause if I make the gelatin kind it always ends up with little globs of rubber all through the product.

    4 cups heavy whipping cream
    1 1/2 cups good powdered sugar (sift after measuring)
    1 Tbl good vanilla extract
    pinch popcorn salt

    Place your bowl and whip (I make in my KA) in freezer until needed. Keep cream in coldest part of fridge.
    When ready to roll, dissolve salt in extract. Whip cream on high until starts to thicken, then start adding in sugar and lastly add the vanilla mixture. Whip until stiff peaks form. Keep COLD!

    This has never failed me.
