Ingredients:  
3 c. pineapple juice
2 cans (15 ozs. each) cream of coconut
1 c. half-and-half, fat-free or regular
24 ounces frozen strawberries in syrup,slightly thawed until slushy in texture
Ice
Fresh pineapple garnish, if desired

Directions:
Directions:
In a blender, puree the slightly thawed strawberries with 1/2 c. water. The mixture should be syrupy and thick. Transfer to a liquid measure, bowl or pitcher and set aside. In a pitcher, whisk together the pineapple juice, cream of coconut and half-and-half. In a blender (washed from pureeing the strawberries), fill up halfway with ice. Pour in the coconut/pineapple mixture until it comes up to an even height with the ice. Blend until slushy (add more coconut/pineapple mixture if it is too thick to blend easily). Pour about an inch of the strawberry syrup mixture into a cup. Pour the icy coconut/pineapple mixture into the center of the strawberry mixture in the cup until the cup is filled. If desired, gently swirl the mixture with a straw. Garnish with fresh pineapple, if desired and serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Refrigerate each component after blending to keep them really cold before assembling the drinks, but don't make too far ahead because the icy components in a few of the steps will melt.
Look in the mixed drinks aisle for the cream of coconut, even if it's non-alcoholic.
