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

Ingredients:

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


Method:

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.
