Tropical Peach Pineapple Slushies

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. I just know it.

These slushies go down so easily and are the perfect summer refresher.

Even though they’re a frozen drink, which are prone to being both skimpy on the booze and heavy on the sugary syrups, these are neither.

There’s plenty of booze and no added sugar, a win-win.

I used Malibu, pineapple vodka, and peach schnapps. The Malibu gives the drinks their signature tropical vibe. Something about Malibu drinks just make you feel like you’re on vacation.

I had the pineapple vodka on hand but regular vodka or your favorite flavored vodka from raspberry to citron will work.

The peach schnapps brings out the peachy flavor and peach and pineapple are such a great combo.

You can keep the slushies virgin by replacing the alcohol with pineapple or orange juice, but I prefer not to. I already drink plenty smoothies.

I was going to flood the slushies with grenadine for a sunset-like effect but refrained since I was trying to not add sugar. If you don’t care, flood away. It’ll taste great and look pretty.

Instead I just went with a couple simple maraschino cherries. I love them.

The slushies are perfect for all those ripe, juicy summertime peaches. In advance of making the drinks, I recommend slicing the peaches and pineapple and putting them in a plastic container or Ziplock and freezing. That way you’re blending frozen fruit so you don’t need to add ice, which would water down the slushies.

Or just start off with frozen bagged fruit, which is what I did. Trader Joe’s frozen pineapple chunks never tasted so good.

I happened to make the slushies during a 95F heat wave we were having in San Diego last week and at 11am after this photo shoot was over, it was definitely 5 o’clock in my kitchen.

Make them for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, your next pool party or bbq, or just because. Just think of all the Vitamin C you’ll be getting.

They go down so incredibly easy and will sneak up on you. That’s the point though.

Tropical Peach Pineapple Slushies

There's no added sugar and plenty of booze in these tropical-tasting slushies. The Malibu lends a tropical vibe, but you can keep the slushies virgin by replacing the alcohol with pineapple or orange juice, at which point you'll have healthy smoothies. In advance of making the drinks, I recommend slicing the peaches and pineapple and putting them in a plastic container or Ziplock and freezing. That way you’re blending frozen fruit so you don’t need to add ice, which would water down the slushies, or simply use bagged frozen fruit. Make them for your next pool party, bbq, or just because. They go down so incredibly easy.

Yield: 2 generous drinks, 12-14 ounces each

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, to freeze fruit prior to blending

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups diced peaches (freeze before blending)
1 1/2 cups diced pineapple (freeze before blending)
2 shots Malibu Rum
2 shots pineapple vodka (regular vodka or your favorite flavored vodka may be substituted)
2 shots peach schnapps
grenadine for drizzling, optional
maraschino cherries for garnishing, optional

Directions:

  1. To the canister of a blender or food processor, add the fruit, liquors, and blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
  2. Divide mixture between two glasses and optionally drizzle with grenadine and garnish with cherries. Serve immediately. Extra slushie mixture can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 month by placing freezer-safe glasses inside a large ziplock bag to avoid freezer smells; allow to thaw for about 30 minutes before stirring and serving. Recipe is intended for those for whom alcohol use is legal and appropriate. Always drink responsibly.

    If I’m going to drink, this is just my style!! Beautiful color–the maraschinos are the perfect garnish. I managed to catch a cold last week and am on the uphill swing now, but a shot of alcohol has always been a better cough suppressant than any yucky tasting cough syrup. So, by my logic, these would be fun, delicious, and medicinal in my current state!

    I would have LOVED one of these today! It went from being 60 and overcaset for the last month to 90 today! And I spent the afternoon in a packed gymnasium for 2 hours….dehydrated, sweating, and unhappy.

    Then went to happy hour on the deck of a bar overlooking Lake Superior. Not too shabby, but this drink would have gone down really fast! ;)

      Leave it to the midwest to go from 60F to 90F, all in a day. San Diego the past week now has been back to the 60F and overcast. I’ve put off photo shoots for the past 3 days b/c it has been May Gray/June Gloom and just damp and icky. I will take those hot 95F Santa Ana’s any day :) Packed hot gyms, no A/C of course, a deck on Lake Superior, wow, this sounds like my childhood and commencement time of year!

    We had that same heat wave up in NorCal last week! Although I was in Miami avoiding the tornado — so crazy! — so I missed it… But I suppose the heat wave didn’t want me to feel left out and returned again this weekend. 100°F both Saturday AND Sunday. No baking for me! ;) The lighting in your photos looks gorgeous! I love how it comes from behind and illuminates the slushie. So dreamy!

    Averie, you’re speaking my language here (the language of booze). This drink looks absolutely delicious and your photos are stunning. You must have one heck of a powerful mixer because your drink looks so smooth as opposed to icy. I don’t think I’ll be able to wait for fresh summer fruit before making this. I better get myself to the store for some frozen stuff!

    No sugar added doesn’t always mean no sugar. This is still a very sugary drink… This is definitely not for diabetics. I estimate about 35 grams (1 1/4 ounces) of pure sugar in each drink. Around 25g for each of the fruits, and 12g in the Malibu and 12g in the peach schnapps. Divided into 2 glasses = 37g. And it has a lot of fructose in it which is the worst sugar health wise.

      Not every drink is for every person, and sounds like it may not be for you, but it’s still better than using those pre-made drink mixes with the first ingredient being corn syrup. At least every ingredient here is ‘natural’ and ‘real’ rather than you know pina colada mix for example where nothing is ‘real’. No ADDED sugar is correct in this recipe.
