To mknuth thanks for answering my question. I thought that might be the case but didn't want to make it too thin with the other 1/2 cup of juice. thanks again.

To marian08: If a recipe doesn't indicate draining the liquid ~ as is the case with the crushed pineapple here ~ then I think you should use the whole can, juice and all. Hope this helps!

I omitted the sugar and extracts and used coconut milk. Very good for a hot summer day.

one question. Since the recipe adds 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice, do you still add the juice that is in the 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple. It sounds delicious and can't wait to try it. I love pineapple. please answer ASAP so I can try this smoothie.
