Equipment

  • Knife & cutting board
  • Blender
  • Strainer
  • Pitcher or jar

Ingredients
 

  • ½ medium fresh pineapple, peeled and cubed ($0.63)
  • 1 liter water ($0.01)
  • 3-4 tablespoon cane sugar or agave ($0.01)

Add-ins optional

  • Ice
  • ½ inch fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1-2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1-2 cups coconut water

Instructions
 

  • First, peel and roughly cut the pineapple into chunks.
  • Add the pineapple to a blender with water and sweetener of choice (cane sugar, agave, etc). You can add in optional ingredients at this point too like fresh ginger, lime, or coconut water in place of plain water.
  • Blend on high until no chunks remain and the mixture is smooth. Taste and adjust the sweetener to your preferences.
  • Strain the mixture into a bowl, jar, or pitcher to remove some of the pulp.
  • Transfer to your fridge to chill, or serve immediately over ice. Happy drinking!

Notes

  • The weight of the ½ pineapple we used was 615g with the skin on.
  • Stevia makes a great replacement if you want a healthier option. For reference, 2 tablespoons of cane sugar are equal to 1 typical packet of powdered stevia (or an 8:1 ratio).
