    thanks for the info...and the blog info! I envy these folks...

    Packy - there is a great tool (I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond) that looks like a tube with a handle to peel/core pineapple. You just line the tube up with the core and twist until you get to the bottom. It looks like you emptied a round can of pineapple (makes one long spiral) and I just cut it up into pieces that will work in my blender. Must easier to use that than to do it by hand. It's around $10 and there are always 20% off coupons for BB&B.

    Packy - here is a link to some very easy instructions on freezing pineapple. It's not difficult at all:

  • LAXMom12 Oct 3, 2012

    A good way to do the fruit for smoothies (especially strawberries and pineapple) is to line a cookie sheet with wax paper and lay the fruit in a single layer. Put it in the freezer for about an hour to start the freezing process. Then put the pieces in your ziploc bag to store in freezer. That keeps them individually frozen so you can pull out a few pieces at a time more easily. I just cap strawberries and do it this way.

    LAX, where are you instructions for frozen pineapple? Is it really hard work? I would think so..???

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 3, 2012

    I thought of you when I saw the pineapple deal, LAXMom! I'll be freezing per your instructions. :-)
