Grilled Pineapple Cheesecake Smoothie

Who doesn't love Pineapple Cheesecake?  Well... my husband doesn't care for Pineapple... so it's all mine! ;-D

I made this Smoothie creation just because I could. ;-)

A confession: I have never made or used No-bake Cheesecake before! It works so well in this recipe that I'm looking forward to making different fruit-flavored Cheesecake Smoothies with it.

It's always fun to experiment with the different food items. I like food that tastes great and is easy to prepare. Make-ahead meals are a passion of mine, so I was delighted that the no-bake cheesecake freezes so well. 

Actually, the entire blended Smoothie freezes perfectly into a semi-hard Ice cream.  

This easy-peasy, inexpensive Smoothie recipe makes 4 servings.

With very little effort, you'll WOW your family and friends in both flavor and presentation!

Step 1: Ingredients you'll need:

Picture of Ingredients you'll need:

1 20 oz. can Sliced Pineapple
1 Box No-Bake Cheesecake Mix
1/2 Cup Ice water (approx)
6 Caramel Candies plus 2 teaspoons water.

First, take one slice of Pineapple out of the can and grill it. I have a Jenn-aire stovetop grill so it's easy for me. Grilling the pineapple is optional, but it adds some "pretty" to the finished Smoothie.

Grill on high for a couple of minutes on each side. Remove to a bowl and put it in the freezer.

Put the rest of the Pineapple (with all of the juice) into your blender and blend on high speed for 3-4 minutes.

Fill an Ice Cube Tray with the blended Pineapple and freeze it.  This may take a couple of hours.

What doesn't fit, put in a glass cup and refrigerate it.

When making a Smoothie or frozen treat, it's recommended that you use 1 part liquid to 3-4 parts frozen ingredients so you don't damage the blades or motor.  

P.S. Don't forget to put your Smoothie Glasses in the freezer, too!

Not to be nitpicky, but making caramel from scratch is maybe even easier than this ^.^ All you need is sugar, butter, milk/cream and heat.

Just heat sugar in a pan (with maybe a little water to get it started) til it melts, add butter, when that melts, add cream.
(maybe I will make an instructable for that with some measurements ^.^)

This recipe sounds delicious by the way!

lol... as long as I don't have to microwave Sweetened condensed milk EVER again. That concoction was not only dangerous (with the potential for disaster), it tasted so wrong! I had to turn to my little caramel candies in the pantry.

I'd enjoying reading an instructable on the proper, easy way to make fresh caramel sauce. I always have those ingredients on hand.

Please let me know when you publish.... and Thank you!!!
