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.

Common Q + A’s About These Mocktails.

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.

Other:

  • To serve—add an ice cube or two into prepared glass(es), followed by juice mixture and ginger beer, stirring together. Add a slice of lime, pineapple chunks, and sliced jalapeños as garnish, if desired.

Tips & Tricks

  • STORAGE: Keep any leftovers (without ginger beer) in the refrigerator, tightly covered in your pitcher or in a sealed mason jar. Best if consumed within a few days.
  • PINEAPPLE: If you decide not to use store-bought pineapple juice, you can always use 2 cups of fresh pineapple chunks and add them to a blender along with 1 cup fresh water. Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth and pineapples are fully broken down. Continue recipe.
  • SWEETNESS: Add more maple syrup or Agave for more sweetness if needed, 1 Tbsp at a time.
