Spicy Pineapple Slush

Use a glass baking dish to freeze the mixture; a metal pan can give the slush an off flavor. If you'd like a spicier slush, leave the seeds in the jalapeño and dip the rims of the glasses in water, then in ancho chile powder.

  • Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 2/3 cup)


  • 1 1/4 cups pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 2 1/4 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ancho chile powder


1. Bring pineapple juice to a boil. Add jalapeño pepper; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Strain pineapple mixture through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Let cool 25 minutes.

2. Place strained pineapple juice, pineapple chunks, and next 5 ingredients (through milk) in a blender; process until smooth.

3. Pour mixture into an 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking dish. Cover and freeze 3 hours or until mixture is slushy, removing from freezer and scraping entire mixture with a fork every 30 minutes.

4. Spoon pineapple mixture into 4 glasses. Serve immediately.
