Island chiller

Dietician's Tip

This tangy, refreshing drink is an excellent source of vitamin C and is also relatively low in calories. Using calcium-fortified orange juice adds 44 milligrams of calcium a serving.


  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen unsweetened strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cans (about 30 ounces) crushed pineapple with juice
  • 3 cups orange juice
  • 2 quarts carbonated water, chilled
  • 16 fresh strawberries


In a blender, combine the frozen strawberries, pineapple with juice and orange juice. Blend until smooth and frothy.

Pour the strawberry mixture into ice cube trays and freeze.

To serve, put 3 strawberry cubes into a tall glass and fill with 1/2 cup of the carbonated water. Wait until the mixture becomes slushy. Garnish with a strawberry and serve.
