Fresh Pineapple Shake

Summer fruits are at their peak. Pineapples which are available year round seem to be even more plentiful about now. A day after I made the mango shake in an earlier post I decided to try making a fresh pineapple shake as well. If you have been a long-time reader of this blog you would know I am violently allergic to fresh pineapple so this was a stretch on my part. But several of our guests were fresh juice fans so I thought I would try it for their sakes. This was easy peasy. Cut a ripe pineapple in half and remove the skin (quick slices to remove outer skin takes seconds, don’t do the slow ridged eye removal version) and center stalk. Chop into small pieces. Throw these into a good blender with a tablespoon or two of sugared water (more if pineapples are sour), and fill the remaining space with ice cubes. Blitz until well blended and serve in ice cold glasses. The pineapple shake has a tendency to separate quickly so you might want to serve this with an iced tea spoon on the side. If you want to get a bit fancy, try blending some fresh mint leaves in with the shake. You can also use some sliced pineapple and mint leaves as a garnish. I didn’t taste the shake but our guests said it was really good…

    That’s just lovely… sigh. I can’t take pineapple as well. Well, not as often. So I’ll just look and take in the refreshing smell…

    The most refreshing and delicious pineapple shake I’ve ever had was at Del Monte Clubhouse, Kawayanon, Bukidnon province. Del Monte regularly comes up with new pineapple varieties — the latest are the “Sweet 16” and “B2”. Sweet 16 sells for Php 25 a piece.
