A Pineapple Refresher and a Dessert Drink (with a Secret Ingredient) from the Half Pint Hacks

Frederick is very proud of this drink because, first, it’s fantastic, and second, the “secret ingredient” was his idea.

We were driving back from a Labor Day breakfast and planning to make a pineapple drink.

“It needs more than pineapple,” I said.

We brainstormed. I had a number of suggestions but when Frederick mentioned his I thought, “Bingo!” and off we went.

The flavor blew me away. I was supposed to be on a diet but that was not possible after a small taste on a spoon. I splurged and had a whole four ounces or so. 🙂

The versions these kids made are a bit sweet. You can definitely add less sweetener, perhaps best by making your syrup less of a syrup and more of a strong flavor infusion. That said, the second drink they offer you is very much in the “ice cream” category and is definitely not too sweet if you are really seeking a dessert.

Check out the video and give the boys a thumbs-up for their creation.
