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:
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!
