Strawberry Pineapple Milkshakes

Almost every time we go grocery shopping the kids beg me to buy them tropical fruit from the produce section.  Mangoes…  kiwis…  star fruits…  coconuts…  pineapples…….

I’m happy to oblige since it’s FRUIT and not a Snickers bar, but sometimes it doesn’t get eaten fast enough or AT ALL (like the coconut I had to take outside and violently crack open with a hammer to witness them try one taste and decide that MAYBE we SHOULDN’T have purchased the raw coconut and that MAYBE we SHOULD’VE listened to mom instead.  Because mom’s know best.  Am I right?!).

Well I caved last time and bought a pineapple for my youngest, Belle.  We got creative and made milkshakes since we had vanilla ice cream.  Tropical milkshakes that is!  They turned out delicious!  We had them with dinner – pulled pork topped with chimichurri sauce, mac-n-cheese, and garlic toast.

VERY UNHEALTHY BUT SOOOO WORTH IT!

If you want to keep things lighter substitute ice cream with low-fat milk and ice and call it a “smoothie!” 😀

Short blog post, I know.  Enjoy! ❤

Strawberry Pineapple Milkshakes

  • 1 cup fresh or canned Pineapple, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 cup fresh Strawberries, halved
  • 2 cups Vanilla Ice Cream

For a smoothie substitute ice cream with 1 cup milk and 1 cup ice.

For Garnish:

In a large blender pulse the fruit first.  Once the fruit is at the desired consistency, add ice cream and blend until smooth but don’t over-mix.  Top with whipped cream and fresh fruit!  Happy Milkshaking!!
