1/2 pineapple (peel removed and cut into bite size chunks - see picture above)
8-9 frozen strawberries*
DO NOT ADD WATER!!!
*I like to freeze my own fruit instead of using the prepackaged kind. Simply remove the green stems from the strawberries, wash, and place in a bowl in your freezer at night. In the morning, your strawberries will be ready for you.
If you do use frozen strawberries from a bag, make sure the only ingredient is strawberries! Avoid added sugars or "fruit juice"!
1) Place the pineapple chunks into your high-speed blender and blend until smooth. DO NOT ADD WATER! You may have to stop the blender, remove the pitcher from the base and give it a good shake a couple of times if the pineapple cubes become stuck in the blades.
2) Add the frozen strawberries and blend until very smooth. There should be no chunks!
