The taste of sunshine – Pineapple Mint Froth Juice

From issue 58.

This sweet thirst quencher is a winner for all ages.

This juice is so easy to make and delicious on a hot day. Hydrating coconut water is the base of the drink, but the rock-star ingredient is pineapple: the tropical yellow fruit contains vitamin C, manganese, fibre and bromelain (a protein-digesting enzyme).

In a bit of multi-tasking magic, you can also turn this juice into iceblocks. The benefit of making your own ice blocks is that you know exactly what’s in them, and can add extra fruit if you like.

My kids have taste-tested this recipe on multiple occasions and love it. We used a Dole pineapple, which has a deliciously sweet flavour and contains lower acid levels than some other pineapples on the market.


Serves 1

1 cup pineapple 
1 cup coconut water
Small handful fresh mint leaves (remember to wash under water first)
Squeeze fresh lime juice 

Roughly cut up the pineapple (removing the skin first), put fruit and other ingredients into a blender, and blitz until frothy. Pour into a glass, add a few ice cubes and enjoy quenching your thirst.

To make into iceblocks, pour liquid into iceblock moulds and leave in the freezer overnight to set.
