The next star in my tropical theme lineup for the National Fresh Squeezed Juice Week is Pineapple Ginger Juice.
Unlike the sweet Pineapple Mango Juice, this drink is a symphony of tropical sweetness with a hint of fiery spice. The zesty kick of ginger adds a subtle warmth that tingles on your taste buds. It’s the kind of spicy kick that keeps you coming back for more.
The sweetness of the pineapple beautifully balances the spiciness of the ginger. It’s like a tropical breeze mingling with the fiery sun, leaving you refreshed and revitalized. Moreover, Ginger Pineapple Juice has lots of health benefits, like supporting immune function, reducing inflammation, and aiding digestion and weight loss.
Here’s how to make Pineapple Ginger Juice.
Pineapple Ginger Juice
- 1 medium-sized pineapple peeled, cored, and chopped
- 1-2 inches of fresh ginger peeled and sliced
- 1-2 tbsp honey or agave syrup optional, based on sweetness preference
- 4 cups water
- Ice cubes optional
- In a blender, combine the pineapple chunks, sliced ginger, and water.
- Blend until smooth.
- For a smoother juice, strain the mixture using a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove pulp. Press or squeeze to extract as much juice as possible.
- If you prefer a sweeter taste, add honey or agave syrup to the juice. Adjust the quantity based on your sweetness preference and blend again.
- Refrigerate the juice for at least 1-2 hours to chill or serve over ice cubes if desired.
