Ingredients:

Serves: 1
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks ( frozen or fresh)

  • 1/2 tsp powdered ginger or 1 tsp grated fresh ginger.
  • 1/2 jalapeno 
  • 1 tsp honey (totally optional)
  • 1 cup water 

Method:

I don't have a juicer so I blend all the ingredients and then strained it using a muslin cloth or you can use strainer too. If you don't want to loose the fiber then skip straining it. Have it like a smoothie.

NOTE:

  • This juice is definitely a healthy choice in place of sugary drinks, chips, and other fatty snacks. But it is important to portion control as one cup of pineapple contain approximately 25 gms of sugar. So follow the quantity mentioned above.
  • You can have this juice once a day.
