How to make fresh pineapple ginger juice?
Wash, peel the ginger skin with a spoon and chop roughly.
Place pineapple chunks, roughly chopped ginger and maple syrup in the blender jar. Squeeze lime juice and add water.
Blend until smooth.
Pour the fresh pineapple ginger juice into glasses and enjoy.
Substitutions and Variations
Sweetener: Maple syrup could be substituted with agave syrup, coconut sugar or any other sweetener of your choice.
Pineapple: Fresh pineapple could be replaced with canned pineapple or frozen pineapple. However, you may have to reduce the sweetener if using canned pineapple. Do a taste test and adjust the sweetener to your taste.
Ginger: I wouldn’t suggest ginger powder as it won’t infuse fresh flavour like fresh ginger.
Lemon: Lemon could be instead of lime, but adjust the quantity to suit your preferred taste.
Great as an after-school snack.
An ideal drink to quench thirst on hot summer days.
Pineapple Juice tastes best when consumed immediately after making it. However, leftover juice could be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Stir it before you consume.
Tips and Tricks
Ice cold juice: Use chilled water and pineapple for refreshing and chilled juice on hot summer days. Alternatively, add ice cubes to the glass of juice before you serve.
Lemon juice: Freshly squeezed lemon juice or lime juice enhances the taste of the juice, so try not to skip it.
Pineapple: Sweet pineapple yields the best-tasting juice. Try not to use too much sour fruit.
You could use a juicer or blender but make sure to process until smooth.
Filter juice through the fine sieve to remove the pulp. However, this is an optional step. Consider it if you would like your juice to be clear without any pulp.
Water: Add just enough water to help the blending process. Add ¼ cup water at a time and gradually add more if required.
Use the leftover pineapple juice to make popsicles. Fill the popsicle mould and pop it in the freezer. It’s a refreshing and cooling dessert for kids on scorching summer days.
Another best option is freezing pineapple ginger juice in an ice cube tray. Use the flavoured ice cubes in cocktails, mocktails, and smoothies or add it to a jug of water and turn it into flavoured water.
The outer layer of the well-ripe and sweet pineapple must have a yellow colour from top to bottom, slightly soft to touch, and you should feel the sweet aroma when sniffed. The stiff, hard and green outer layer indicates the pineapple is unripe.
Cut the front and end of the pineapple. Keep the pineapple upright, use a knife to remove the outer layer.
Now cut the pineapple into half lengthwise. Quarter each half, remove the core and chop into bite-size pieces.
