Minty pineapple-mango slush
Icy cold and loaded with vitamins, this fruit slush is the perfect summer pick-me-up, and it’s ready in just 10 minutes. Refrigerate the ingredients before blending to produce an ultra-cold drink. When buying pineapple, look for fruits with a sweet aroma and golden outer skin, which are good signs that the pineapple is at or nearing peak ripeness. Very green pineapples can be a good choice if you know you won’t be using them for a few days. For mangos, ripe ones will give a little when gently pressed, and some may give off a sweet aroma. But disregard skin color; it is not an indicator of ripeness.
