WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU PINEAPPLES…
Many of us who love pineapples will fill in the blank instantly with delicious ideas. While we know that this delicious fruit is high in Vitamin C, did you also know that pineapples contain anti-inflammatory properties and act as an effective cough remedy? Instead of reaching for a store-bought cough syrup, make your own with some pineapple juice blended with honey, ginger, salt, and a little cayenne pepper for an au natural healer! There are so many other ways you can enjoy this juicy fruit – we’ve listed down four great ideas for a tropical paradise.
These are so good on a hot sunny day and a perfect treat for anyone, especially kids. There are a couple of ways you can make them. You can either use crushed pineapples or fresh pineapples. Whatever pineapples you decide to use, place them in a high-powered blender and blend them until smooth. For a more tart flavor you can add freshly squeezed lime juice. If you like it creamy, add some whipped cream or coconut milk (think pina colada!). Once the mixture is ready pour it into popsicle moulds and place them in the freezer.
Sunshine on a toast
Pineapple jam makes your morning toast bright and shiny – just what you need to start off the day. And it’s so easy to make it yourself at home. All you need are fresh pineapples and sugar. Crush the pineapples and place them in a saucepan with the sugar. Boil for 20 minutes, stirring often, or until it’s thickened. Make it the night before and enjoy it in the morning.
Bored with the usual dressing for your salad? Try combining pineapple juice with vinegar, salt, and pepper for a sweet and tangy dressing. Don’t forget to toss some fresh pineapples into your salad for an added refreshing flavor. They make such a great healthy addition to any type of salad.
