Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
1. Obtain a 950-wattage blender with at least a 2 horsepower electric motor, and plug it into your standard 120-volt housing power outlet (blender setting “liquefy” desired).
2. Wash fruits with cold water to remove any contamination obtained during the shipping process (depicted above).
3. Take a large knife and place pineapple on a cutting surface.
4. While holding the pineapple on its side, cut off the top and bottom portion (see warning).
5. Place the pineapple back onto its newly cut base (depicted above).
6. Place the knife on the outer edge from the center of the pineapple, and begin removing the outer husk in a downward cutting motion (see warning).
7. Dice pineapple in small pieces and place into a container large enough to fit the pineapple slices, mango slice, and ginger slices (see warning) (depicted above).
8. Gather the mango and begin removing its outer skin with a smaller knife, such as a steak knife (see warning) (depicted above).
*Individual cut towards themselves at own risk*
9. Add the chopped pieces of the mango to the container containing the chopped pieces of the pineapple (depicted above).
10. Continue this process (steps 8 and 9) with the ginger to finish the chopping process (only ½ a table spoon of ginger required).
11. Now that you have completed the chopping process, add 1/3 of the chopped ingredients and 1/3 of the water in your 16.9oz water bottle into the blender (depicted above).
12. Place a lid on the blender and activate the “liquefy” setting for approximately 15 seconds, or until the ingredients are liquefied.
13. Repeat steps 11 and 12 until all of the fruit/water is mixed, and your desired thickness/concentration is achieved (depiction above).
14. Use a strainer and spoon to separate any remaining solid material after blending (depiction above).
15. Take a sampling of the finished product and salt/sugar to taste.
16. Place contents into a storage container and refrigerate.
17. Finally, poor yourself a tall one, sit back, relax, and enjoy your new creation!
