Pineapple Slush- blend
I combine the pineapple ingredients and blend them up to make the icy pineapple mix.

You want an icy smooth mix. If you find it to be too thick add more juice.

Next blend the peaches and pineapples. I find that the peaches help the strawberry puree to be that smooth consistency. I add a little sugar when the strawberries are bitter and also to add a sweetness to contrast the tanginess of the pineapple.

Once blended, it’s time to serve. I usually get 5-7 tall glasses of this pineapple strawberry slush. I add the puree first and then tilt the glass to pour in the pineapple mix for a cool split in the cup. The kiddos like when the two are divided so they can try to mix into a swirl.

The best part is, rather than trying to save it for later, You can pour the leftovers into popsicle molds to make a treat to enjoy later. My kids love when I make homemade paletas for them. These turn out delicious!
