    Pineapple Coconut Water


    Pineapple Coconut Water

    HS: I use a juice extractor for the pineapple juice here. I suspect you could also use a blender, or Vitamix, then straining or partial straining? Although, my pal Jeffrey, in his new book – The Bar Book – recommends juicing pineapples by pulsing peeled/cored cubes in a food processor, and then spinning the puree in a double-cheesecloth lined salad spinner. :). To juice ginger, peel the ginger, grate using a microplane grater, then press through a strainer. Or, alternately, use a juicer.

    3/4 cup / 180 ml fresh pineapple juice
    1/2 cup / 120 ml pure coconut water
    1/2 teaspoon pure ginger juice
    1 teaspoon runny honey, if needed
    1 lime

    Combine the pineapple juice, coconut water, and ginger juice in a cocktail shaker or mason jar filled with ice. Shake well, taste, and if needed, add a bit of honey to sweeten. If your pineapple is sweet enough, you won’t need much honey, if any.

    Fill small, chilled glasses with lots of ice cubes, and razor-thin slices of lime. Pour the pineapple coconut water into the prepared glasses, and finish with an extra squeeze of lime if you like.

    Serves 2.

    M – The next time you cut a fresh pineapple, rub the juice on your face and leave it for 5 minutes. Then rinse it off. My skin looked great. It seems to pull it tight and make it glow.

    In a blender, blend:
    1 c. fresh pineapple
    2 drops olive oil
    1/4 cacao pdr. (I mixed mine half with carob powder)
    dash water
    dash of raw honey or agave, if preferred. Taste it first.
    Blend until creamy. Wayyyyy better than using a cup of oil or cacao butter in your recipe. It’s delicious!
    Pour it over your fruit bowl!
