I know what you’re thinking, “pineapple in water? uuuhhhh, no thanks!” I thought the same thing too before trying it. Trust me, this one’s delicious! We bought a topless pineapple (that’s fun to say!) and some fresh mint leaves and enjoyed this water all day.
This combo is extra delicious. I would’ve never thought to try it, but I’m so glad I did! The refreshing mint with the fun, summery taste of pineapple is a perfect treat.
Some added bonuses:
- Pineapple and its natural sugars can reduce intestinal inflammation and break down waste in the small intestine
- Mint can aid in digestion and help with stomach cramps
Rinse off your mint leaves and chop up your pineapple. I like to have bigger fruit chunks (personal preference). Have your water carafe handy. Remember to find one that has a big opening, or you’ll never get the fruit out when you’re cleaning it! Drop your fruit and mint into the carafe. Fill with water and leave in the fridge for a few hours. Voila, your water’s ready!
Heads up: this water is delicious and ready to drink after about an hour. It stays fresh and flavorful for about a day, not much longer.
