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!
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!
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.
1/2 can of diet coke (or regular coke, I just had diet on hand)
1 shot of amaretto (I used my favorite: Disaronno)
