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:
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.

CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD OF TIME?
Absolutely! Simply make your mocktail in a medium pitcher the day before, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. The best part about making these ahead of time is that they’ll be completely chilled once ready to serve.
WHAT OTHER INGREDIENTS CAN I ADD?
Honestly, you can choose to substitute lemon as opposed to using lime. In addition, you can add herbs such as basil, mint, or rosemary to add an extra earthy flavor. Of course, you can always add strawberries to the mix for a nice twist as well.
HOW LONG DO THESE LAST?
For optimal freshness, these mocktails (made without ginger beer) will last 3-5 days once covered and refrigerated.
CAN I TURN THESE INTO A COCKTAIL?
Of course! You can always add 1 cup of your favorite alcoholic beverage to these drinks to make them a nice cocktail.
