Fresh Pineapple Juice

I don’t know about you, but whenever I buy a whole pineapple, I always end up with half of it leftover. A great way to use up those extra chunks of sweet pineapple is to toss them all in your Magic Bullet and blend it into a delicious, fresh pineapple juice. You can keep your freshly blended pineapple juice in the refrigerator for a few days. It is especially nice to have around for a weekend brunch! In this recipe, […]

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

These mini pineapple upside-down cakes are a great dessert for a dinner party and make excellent just-because treats! You can make them ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator until ready to serve (they taste great chilled). I cut down the butter and brown sugar, which usually gives pineapple upside-down cake that glazed appearance, but feel free to add more to the ramekins before adding the pineapple on top for a sweeter cake. This recipe makes two 4-inch […]

Piña Colada-ish

Duyen made some virgin piña coladas recently that looked delicious. And it seems we are on similar wavelengths because I made some, too. Only I like rum. Quite a lot actually. Also, I wasn’t smart enough to look up an actual piña colada recipe, so I just made it up. We had pineapple. And coconut milk. Seemed easy enough, right? Not going to lie, it took a couple of tries. A lot of re-blends, if you will. So I don’t […]

Virgin Piña Coladas

Do you like piña coladas? And dancing in the rain? If so, it sounds like we could be friends. Since rum isn’t my favorite liquor, I decided to make some virgin piña coladas to try and beat the heat. These are just as good as alcoholic ones and are totally acceptable to drink at any function. I got the recipe from Paula Deen who I still love in spite of her diabetes debacle. She has a really interesting life; I […]

Coconut What?

Hello friends, You may have noted from my bio that I’m extremely fond of tropical fruit smoothies.  Well, the rumors are true! Although my obsession with blended fruit beverages is a fairly recent development, I can’t imagine how I ever lived without them. I must have been so depressed. If there’s one thing you can expect from me– during my time as your Magic Bullet advisor, it’s that I’ll be making A LOT of tasty smoothies, which hopefully you’ll be […]

Pineapple Spinach Popsicles

I’m sorry, WHAT?!?! Why the heck would I want to eat that? Well you might not, but if you had a baby child who was young enough to still be tricked into liking green veggies well then, you might wanna give this a shot! My son Theo is currently 16 months old and obsessed with popsicles. All day long he begs me to drag the freezer open so he can get his little paws in there and muck about with […]
