About this recipe

Today, I’m excited to introduce you to the Pineapple Splash, a vibrant concoction that promises to invigorate your senses. This Pineapple Splash recipe is a simple yet delightful blend, perfect for those seeking a quick and easy way to refresh themselves. Drawing inspiration from my array of drink recipes, including the soothing Jallab, a traditional Ramadan drink, and a comforting blog on tea for chilly nights, this Pineapple Splash stands out as a summer favourite. It’s also a proud part of my Christmas planner, a comprehensive guide to crafting the perfect lunch or dinner, complete with step-by-step instructions.

Transitioning from the rich flavours of Jallab and the warmth of my tea recipes, the Pineapple Splash offers a crisp, tropical alternative. With just a few ingredients like ripe pineapple, zesty ginger, and crisp apple, blended with the coolness of mint, this drink is not just a beverage; it’s a refreshing escape. Ideal for gatherings or a quiet moment alone, it embodies the essence of simplicity and flavour. As we dive into the recipe, remember, this is more than just a drink; it’s a celebration of flavour, perfect for any occasion.

Notes from Rouba

  • When preparing for a large group, make the drink in batches to ensure consistency and to manage blender or juicer capacity
  • Use ripe pineapples for the best flavour.
  • Choose apples that are more on the sweet side, like fuji to complement the other flavours.
  • straining is an important step to ensure a smooth drink. A fine-mesh sieve works best.

Method

Step 1. Blend

In a blender, combine the pineapple, ginger, apples, cucumber, mint leaves, and 1 cup of water or sparkling water. Depending on your blender's size, you may still need to do this in batches to ensure everything blends smoothly.

Step 2. Strain

Pour the blended mixture through a sieve into a large jug or pitcher to remove the pulp, pressing gently to extract as much liquid as possible.

Step 3. Flavour Adjustments and Serve

Optionally, add lemon or lime juice to the strained juice according to your taste preferences.

Add the remaining cup of water or sparkling water to the jug and stir well. Serve the drink over ice in individual glasses.
