Hence, while we do not have a second thought before planning to buy chocolates or sweets when we go on a tour beyond India, I on the other hand always lookout for fresh, exotic fruits of a particular city or country wherever I go to!
And even for my day to day routine in India, I try my best to include as many fruits as possible in our meals.

What is Pineapple Juice?
Well, everyone knows the answer to this! Pineapple juice is made by blending pineapple and water together to make a refreshing drink.
You can also add in 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 your cutting on the sugar.
After making the juice, strain it and enjoy. But if you don’t mind the fibre in it, you can avoid straining it too.
Why Pineapple juice is good for you?
Pineapple juice has many health benefits. Pineapple is rich in potassium, manganese, calcium and phosphorus. It is also rich in fibre and low in calories.
It is rich in Vitamin C and by drinking one glass of pineapple juice, you get 30% of your daily Vit C requirement. It boosts the immune system and is rich in antioxidants.
Bromelain present in pineapples that can fight free radicals and cancerous cells.
Pineapple helps in digestion and improves gut health.
It improves blood circulation, lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of a heart attack.

How to store fresh Pineapple Juice?
Fresh Pineapple Juice stays good in the refrigerator for almost 3 to 5 days when stored in an airtight container, but it would lose its freshness and flavour a bit.
That’s why I recommend you to make it fresh.
How to pick up the best Pineapple to juice?
The best way to pick up a ripe juicy pineapple is by smelling its base.
If it smells sweet, it’s ready to be cut and juice.
If there is no smell, then it’s not ripe yet.
Will Pineapple Juice freeze?
It can be frozen in any freezer-safe container for up to 4-5 months.
Can you drink Pineapple Juice every day?
Yes, you can drink it every day but make sure you do not overdo it.
Because of the presence of bromelain, it can cause rashes, vomiting or diarrhoea.
Though I would suggest you to chose different fruits for your daily juicing, as each and every fruit has a different set of nutrients and consuming variations of fruits will help you get the daily dose of all those essential vitamins and minerals.
Will Pineapple Juice help loose weight?
Pineapple is full of fibres and makes you full very fast and hence control overeating.
Readymade juices have this fibre removed and so what is left is mostly fruit sugar.
But when you make the juice at home, most of the fibre is retained and you feel full after a glass of this juice.
And this prevents you from eating more which aids in weight loss.
If you want to make this juice even healthier, skip the process of straining and drink the juice with more fibres.
Pineapple juice mixed with orange juice, apple cider vinegar and honey is a sure shot weight loss remedy.
It reduces belly fat and shrinks the stomach.
You can make it unsweetened if you wish to.
Will Pineapple Juice help constipation?
Since homemade pineapple juice is full of fibres, it is a natural laxative.
It also has an enzyme which helps in improving bowel function.
Variations of Pineapple Juice?
Mix it with part orange juice or cranberry juice for a tasty twist.
Add some vodka or coconut rum like Malibu to it for a tropical boozy twist.
Add blue curacao and coconut water for a funky mocktail.
Add some ginger, that also works great and gives a nice flavour to this fruity juice.
