Feeling 'Heaty'? This Pineapple Coconut Water Will Save The Day
This is what you need after all that decadent festive food.
Think of this drink as a tasty tonic. It’s chock-full of anti-inflammatory properties from the ginger and hydrating electrolytes from the coconut water. Not to mention the vitamins and liver-cleansing benefits of pineapple. It tastes like a virtuous, booze-free pina colada given a spicy jolt. Super yummy.
PINEAPPLE COCONUT WATER
Makes about 2 ½ cups
120g fresh chilled pineapple, sliced
a thumb-sized piece of ginger
water from 1 whole young coconut (or 1½ cups pure coconut water from a Tetra Pak), chilled
1 small lime, juiced
1. Use a cold-pressed juicer to extract the pineapple and ginger juices. Alternatively, use a regular centrigfugal juicer and then strain the juices through a fine sieve.
2. Mix the juices with the coconut water and add the juice of the lime to taste. Serve chilled.
