Strawberry Pineapple Shaker-Upper {non-alcoholic summer drink}

Strawberry Pineapple Shaker-Upper {non-alcoholic summer drink}

I’m loving that summer is just around the corner! We’re crazy packing and getting ready to move next week, but I’ve been day dreaming about the pool waiting for us at our new apartment building.  I grew up spending my summer days by the pool or at the beach, and I’m really excited to get back to that kind of a summer lifestyle (we don’t do a whole lot of pool-lounging here in the southern VA mountains, unfortunately)!

Since Memorial Day is on Monday, I thought it would be fun to share a few summertime mocktails (non-alcoholic) this week that would be delicious to drink poolside or at the beach. This one tastes like summer in a glass and is so easy to make! It’s full of strawberries and pineapple, which make it fruity and tart. It also calls for ice cream, which means it’s cream and dreamy too!

All of the drink recipes I’ll be sharing are for serving to a crowd, but I think you could easily pare them down to just a serving or two.

Cheers!

Clarification: despite the picture, there are actually no oranges in this recipe. This is simply a styling error. I liked the summer-time feel of the oranges in the shot, but in the chaos of shooting three drinks in one day (2 of which DO have oranges in the recipe), I failed to realize that this particular drink does not include oranges. I’m sorry for any confusion! If you have your heart set on a mocktail that includes orange juice, be sure to check out the upcoming recipes this week on the blog.

  1. Strawberry sherbet, now that’s something I haven’t had in a good 20 years. Seriously since I was a kid! Wow, I need it all of a sudden! :) These look great & super refreshing! pinned

  2. Now that is seriously quite the drink! It reminds me of vacay time!

  3. LOVE this drink, oranges or not. Gorgeous pics too!!! :)

  4. YUM!! This sounds absolutely delightful! Can’t wait to be sipping on one of these :)

  5. This looks super tempting! If a summer frosty drink doesn’t have alcohol, then it’s gotta have ice cream. So this one fits that bill perfectly!

  6. This is the perfect drink for cooling off on a hot summer day! Hope your move goes smoothly!

  7. This looks so good, and I love that it can be made for all ages! A definite must-make this summer :)
