Yet another delight from The Better Homes and Gardens Blender Cook Book . I... I am still working myself up to the drink with sauerkraut and tomato soup.
1 12-ounce can pineapple juice
1 8-ounce can pear halves, undrained
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Few drops peppermint extract
Blend first 4 ingredients in blender container till pears are pureed. Serve mixture over ice cubes; garnish with mint leaves. Serves 4 to 5.
Verdict: Lovely. A proto-smoothie. I think this would be better with the ice cubes blended up right along with it, but still nice and refreshing. In case you can't tell, the stuff floating on the top is mint.
My mint plant is a little under the weather.
