About This Recipe
Pineapple Juice is made by blending fresh pineapple and water together to make a refreshing drink. A delicious tropical delight! You can also add ice cubes instead of water if you like it cold.
I have added a little sugar to make the juice, but you can avoid it if you’r cutting on the sugar. After making the juice, strain it and enjoy it. But if you don’t mind the fiber in it, you can avoid straining it too.
You can always add in some salt and black pepper, for that extra taste. Adding mint leaves is also a good option, it adds more refreshing taste to the same.

That’s why I recommend you to make it fresh.
It can be frozen in any freezer-safe container for up to 4-5 months.
Frequently Asked Questions
