  • 6 cups fresh or canned pineapple chunks
  • 3 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons coconut extract
  • 4 cups ice cubes
  • Garnish: drink umbrellas or pineapple wedges skewered on a toothpick


  • Add 1½ cups yogurt, 3 cups pineapple, 1½ cups pineapple juice, 2 tablespoons sugar, 11/2 teaspoons coconut extract, and 2 cups ice cubes to a blender and blend until smooth. Repeat with remaining ingredients for a second batch.
