Recipe: Island chiller

Dietitian'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 per serving.

Serves: 16

Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
