Thirsty Thursday: Pineapple Crush

pineapple crush- a delicious summer smoothie

Yesterday I promised you a new drink recipe and so I’m here today to deliver on that promise. I came up with this recipe the other day after buying more pineapple chunks than I could actually eat in a short period of time. So out came the blender and I started poking around my fridge for something that could compliment one of my favorite summer fruits.


Pineapple Crush- the perfect summer smoothie

  • 3/4 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup strawberry yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips/shavings
  • 1/2 cup ice

Optional: Add a shot of rum to add a little kick!


Pineapple Crush- the perfect summer smoothie recipe!

All you have to do is throw all of your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Who knew something so good could be so easy? I highly suggest bringing this drink out during your next outdoor summer meal. I promise it will be a hit!

Thirsty Thursday: will.i.amaretto

will.i.amaretto: amaretto, coke, vanilla In full disclosure, I tend to stay away from sweet drinks. My stomach usually thanks me for that, but every so often I have to cave for some Disaronno and milk. It’s soooo good, but it’s definitely a bit heavier than I’d like. I decided to try something a little different today to balance out the sweetness of amaretto but still satisfy my amaretto craving. will.i.amaretto: amaretto, coke, vanilla


  • 1/2 can of diet coke (or regular coke, I just had diet on hand)
  • 1 shot of amaretto (I used my favorite: Disaronno)
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract

Just mix everything up and pour over ice. will.i.amaretto: amaretto, coke, vanilla   PS- Can I interest you in another drink? Perhaps a Grenadine Martin or maybe a Strawberry Manilow? Even more options available here!

PPS- treat yo’ self!
