Creamy Pineapple Shake

This is a two-for-one post. What does that mean exactly? That simply means that this post includes two recipes, one for a delicious Creamy Pineapple Shake and the second really isn’t a recipe but more of a “how to” or “kitchen tip.” ‘How to Split and Scrape a Vanilla Bean.’ Vanilla beans can be purchased at specialty gourmet stores or at most large grocery stores in the spice/baking aisle. You can also purchase vanilla beans from any of the number of online spice stores.

Pineapple Shake

Shakes are so refreshing and easy to make. Just about any ingredient can be put into a blender with great results. This recipe is made with pineapple juice, canned cream of coconut, vanilla bean, crushed pineapple and one quart of vanilla ice cream. Sounds splendid doesn’t it? And it is! Super creamy and delicious with a hint of coconut and bits of pineapple. I’ve made ice cream popsicles too. Pour the shake mixture into Tovolo Groovy Popsicle Molds.

How to Split and Scrape Vanilla Bean

  • Split the Bean
  • Take a sharp paring knife and poke a hole through the vanilla bean so the bean lies flat when you hold the knife horizontally.
  • Hold the vanilla bean in place on the side facing the dull part of the knife.
  • Using short sawing motions, pull the paring knife across the entire vanilla bean so that it splits it into two even halves.
  • Scrape the Seeds
  • Hold the dull side of your paring knife firmly against the middle of the vanilla bean half and scrape across the entire bean.
  • If your vanilla bean half folds over at the edges, you may need to repeat this motion with the dull side of the tip of the paring knife to get the seeds underneath each fold.
  • Repeat with the other half.
