Pineapple Slush has got to be one of our all-time favorite fruit slushie recipes, its tropical flavor, and rich taste is something me and my entire family fell in love with, and believe me, we drink a lot of slushies!
But first, a fun fact about pineapples.
Did you know that Hawaii produces about a third of all the pineapples in the world! Isn’t that crazy?
As you know, the essential ingredient to making this tropical pineapple slush is to have the perfect pineapple.
How to pick the perfect pineapple? Flip the pineapple and sniff the bottom of it, there should be a sweet scent coming from it.
If the stem/bottom of the pineapple has no sweet scent, it most likely isn’t ripe yet.
In case you purchased an unripe pineapple, simply place it upside down, so it ripens faster.
Pineapple Slush Recipe Ingredients
- 4 cups pineapple juice
- 1 cup of canned coconut milk
- Maraschino cherries (garnish)
- Pineapple wedges (garnish)
Fun fact about Pineapple
Did you know that pineapples are one of the richest sources of vitamin C, fiber, manganese, and vitamin B, drinking these slushies will literally make you healthier!
Pineapple Slushy Recipe Preparation in a Slushie Machine
Start by combining the pineapple juice and the canned coconut milk in a large bowl.
Mix both ingredients thoroughly for a few minutes or until they’re fully mixed.
Pour the mixture into the slushie machine.
Put on the cover, turn on the slush machine and switch to the “SLUSH” mode on the side of your slushie machine.
Pour the chilled slushies into glasses, decorate with lemon wedges and serve to your guests.
It’s recommended that you serve the pineapple slush immediately, otherwise if left out for too long, it’ll start to melt.
Another option is to leave it in the slush machine on the “Preserve” mode – this is another incredible benefit of using a slushie machine over a blender!
One last fun fact about Pineapples
Did you know that pineapple is made of up to 86% water and just 13% carbohydrates, with absolutely zero fat or protein?

Pineapple Slush Recipe Preparation in a Blender
Start by mixing the pineapple juice and the canned coconut milk in a large freezer-proof bowl.
Mix both ingredients thoroughly for a few minutes, until they’re fully mixed and then place in the freezer for 3-4 hours.
After the mixture is fully frozen, put it in a high-speed blender – don’t forget the lid. 😉
Turn on the blender and periodically blend using the “PULSE” function, this will give us a very good texture. Stop until you get your desired consistency.
Pour the chilled slushies into glasses, decorate with lemon wedges and serve immediately to your guests.
