Creamy Pineapple Slushie makes a healthy tropical treat everyone can enjoy.
I have no idea if this is a Dole Whip copycat or not. I have never had one of those. But, I do know that this uses real pineapple instead of sugar and artificial pineapple flavoring so it is BETTER.
Pineapple is available year round, but it is at it's peak March through July. They do not ripen after picking, though they will get softer and juicier if left on the counter. Just not sweeter.
How to pick a ripe pineapple: the color should be mostly yellow, it should feel slightly soft when squeezing and should smell pineapple-y. I also have good luck by trying to pull a leaf from the crown. If it comes out easily it is ripe, if you have to tug on it try another pineapple.
