Strawberry Pineapple Crush

It is so hot nowadays that I don't feel like turning on the oven at all. Every summer, I decide to get another oven to keep in the basement where it is cool and bake there. But, somehow it never gets done and I end up not baking too much or baking in the early hours of the day. Since it is so hot, I have been making too many drinks. Limeade, lemonade, mango juice, you name it. I had some strawberries to finish and this drink was made. Slightly adapted from the book 'Cool Smoothies' by Elsa Petersen-Schepelern.

One Year Back - Oats and Cashew Milk
Two Years Back - Kesar Nankatai and Molasses Oat bran Cookies
Pineapple chunks - 2 cups (1 can of 20 Oz pineapple chunks in its own juice drained)
Pineapple juice or Orange juice - 1 cup (I used the drained pineapple juice from the can)
Strawberries - 10 - 15 hulled and coarsely chopped (I used 10 since they were really big)
Sugar - 2 TBSP or to taste
Ice to serve
Blend all the ingredients except ice until smooth. Pour into glasses and top it with ice and serve.
