Why Did I Choose Pineapples?!

Besides the fact that pineapples are insanely delicious, I chose to use pineapple juice in this lemonade for a few specific reasons.

Pineapples are not just popular. They are loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and other enzymes that help to fight inflammation, etc.

Here’s a few impressive health benefits:

  • They are low in calories + loaded with nutrients such as Vitamin C, Manganese, Vitamin B6, Protein, among others.
  • Loaded with healthy antioxidants that combat oxidative stress.
  • Contains digestive enzymes which helps to better support the digestive system + functioning.
  • May help to boost Immunity + suppress inflammation, including Arthritis.
  • May help to speed recovery after surgery or a strenuous workout.

Of course, you can always use fresh pineapple which will be blended in together with everything. However, if using pineapple juice like me, be sure to keep things healthy by purchasing it organic.

As a result, it allows us to think more clearly, and the antioxidant properties eliminates oxidative stress and helps to lower our chances of Alzheimers and dementia.

Also, because of their antibacterial and antiviral properties, you can use both ingredients to prevent any infection of the skin.

Tips & Tricks

PINEAPPLE: If you decide not to use store-bought pineapple juice, you can always use 2 cups of fresh pineapple chunks and them to blender along with freshly steeped ginger-turmeric mixture. Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth and pineapples are fully broken down. Continue recipe.
SWEETENER: You can always use ‘honey’, pure cane sugar, or maple syrup instead of using Agave. This makes for a more subtle sweet taste. For Vegan honey option—Bee Free Honee, click link.
TURMERIC: For health benefits of using turmeric, ensuring that it is paired with black pepper, helps to aid in curcumin absorption.
SWEETNESS: Add more maple syrup or Agave for more sweetness if needed, 1 Tbsp at a time.
STORAGE: Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator, tightly covered in your pitcher or in a sealed mason jar. Best if consumed within a few days.

  1. This must call for something other than fresh ginger root, as 2-3 cups is beyond excessive. Perhaps 2-3 tsp?? You would only use 2-3 cups if you were making candied or preserved ginger…

    • Hi Linda! It’s actually 2-3 cups! If preferred, you can always use less, however, since they are being boiled and discarded, for a burst of ginger flavor, you’ll need at least 2 cups. 🙂

    • Hi John! As noted in the recipe, you can add the amount of ginger depending on the amount of Ginger flavor desired. If you choose for less flavor, you can feel free to reduce the amount! 🙂

  2. Super healthy and totally delicious! This lemonade is the perfect antidote for those days we’re feeling under the weather. Thanks for sharing!
