  • About

Sweet pineapples and tart tree tomatoes* complement each other in this juice. The color of the latter brings out a festive environment. Great for parties served in decorative tall glasses with pieces of fruit to decorate, or in small pineapples where the fruit has been scooped out to make the juice. Tree tomatoes are sold in specialty and Latin American grocery stores.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled, diced pineapple
  • 1 tree tomato*, peeled and diced (about 1⁄4 to 1⁄3 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 to 2 cups crushed ice

Method

  1. Place the fruits in a blender with the sugar and 1 cup of ice. Puree until smooth and serve immediately.
  2. Add the second cup of ice if you want a lighter smoothie, or serve over crushed ice.
