WHAT FRUITS TASTE GOOD IN A PINEAPPLE MILKSHAKE?
Pineapple is a good companion for tropical fruits such as mango, banana or passion fruit but also for oranges or grapefruit.
For this pineapple milkshake recipe, I combined fresh pineapple with banana and orange.
The tropical flavors of the Caribbean are irresistible. All I need now is some sunscreen and a good book!
This fresh pineapple milkshake is the perfect way to enjoy a taste of vacation right at home.
It’s similar to a Pina colada but without the alcohol.
And this pineapple shake is sure to be a kid and adult favorite.
While there are plenty of smoothie recipes abound I wanted to make a milkshake.
Instead of yogurt or whole milk, I added a few scoops of vanilla ice cream for a frosty frozen novelty.
HOW TO MAKE A PINEAPPLE MILKSHAKE
Throw a banana and a cup of fresh pineapple chunks in the freezer for an hour or so.
Blending frozen fruit with vanilla ice cream for a few minutes produces a creamy pineapple milkshake with the consistency of a soft serve.
For an adult version, a splash of coconut rum turns this delicious milkshake into a special frozen libation.
It tastes like a something from the ice cream man, doesn’t it?
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF PINEAPPLE?
Get your fruit fix. Pineapple can be enjoyed so many ways. I love to mix it in salsas, spoon it over fish and enjoy it in desserts.
You can splash pineapple juice in your favorite cocktail and enjoy grilled pineapple with a sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon.
Not only is it delicious, it’s also good for you.
Can you freeze fresh pineapple?
Yes you can. Pineapple is easy to freeze. It first requires a bit of preparation.
You must peel, core and cut the pineapple into chunks or rings and place it into airtight containers or freezer bags.
I like to freeze a certain amount that I can grab when I need it leaving the rest in the freezer for next time.
Fresh pineapple can stay on the counter until it is cut and peeled. It can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
How do I pick a fresh pineapple
As a pineapple ripens the outside will change from a green-gray to yellow, so as a general rule, the more yellow a pineapple’s exterior is, the riper it will be.
A pineapple that’s a golden-yellow color from top to bottom is ideal for picking.
