Pine Lime Splice

Following on from my ‘Coconut Water‘ post, I thought I’d share one of my favourite summer combos.

I love the taste of coconut water though I know a few people who just don’t.  So if you want to benefit from the impressive mineral profile and hydration from coconut water – without the taste, then try it in this delicious rehydration drink (or mixer).  The pineapple is very anti-inflammatory, supports digestion and reduces mucous production.  It is also a very rich source of Vitamin C along with the lime.   The coconut water, I’ve written about here.  Most of all, it is refreshing and  delicious!

Makes 4 small jars or glasses

Ingredients

350ml (approx.)  of coconut water
1 cup of ice
4-5 cm slice of fresh pineapple diced and cored
Juice of half a lime
1 teaspoon of vanilla powder, paste or essence
Method

  1. Throw it all into powerful blender or food processor and process at the highest speed until smooth and creamy.
  2. Serve immediately.

 

Variations
Make it minty
Add a few sprigs of fresh mint.

More anti-inflammatory
Add a little ginger and/or turmeric

Ice blocks
Freeze it into ice block moulds for a refreshing, healthy, frozen treat.  Even add cubes of pineapple into the mould for a bit of texture.

A tropical cocktail
Add a shot of vodka for a tropical inspired cocktail.

 

How do you like this tropical delight?  Love to hear what you think?

    I usually drink just water but at times it just gets boring. This is a great idea for an alternative when the thought of another glass of water depresses me a little. 🙂 Thanks!

    • Yes simple but delicious – enjoy! G x

    Hi Georgia, this post popped up just when we needed it! I madd a version with organes instead of lime, was beautiful!

    Just wondering how long this could be kept in the fridge? I know it’s best fresh but when the whole family is ill, there is nothing worse than the dulcet tones of the blender, and I’ll be honest, I don’t have the energy to make more! Does bromelain and other enzymes degrade quickly? Many thanks.

    • Hi Holly
      Sorry, I’ve been interstate presenting at a health summit so a little out of my routine with approving and answering comments. I know cut pineapple is said to last for 3 days in the fridge (months if frozen). I always drink this fresh – the pineapple does separate when left to sit too long. This is quite a good guide for storing http://bestforjuicing.com/how-long-can-i-store-my-juice/ hope it helps G x

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
