Most of the time I drink water but during the summer I crave fruity drinks. You should definitely try this Pineapple Lemonade recipe to quench your thirst.
Everyday after work I pick up the kids from daycare. I’ll admit that by this point in the day we are all hot and little grouchy. My solution is usually a fun drink. Sometimes I’ll just get a sparkling water and add a little fruit juice. But sometimes I want something a little better.
We have a long history of making fun drinks in my house. Whether it’s coffee drinks, smoothies, juice blends or other concoctions. I love mixing seasonal fruits to create a new drink. Remember my Strawberry Lemonade?
One of the best things about making your own drinks is having absolute control of the ingredients. In this recipe, the pineapple juice is very sweet so you may not need to add a sweetener. If it isn’t sweet enough for you go with your favorite sweetener whether it’s sugar, agave nectar or stevia.
One of the great things about this recipe is that you can switch it up depending on what fruit you have. I happen to love pineapple but mix in fresh berries to add another pop of flavor!
One thing to consider is that sometimes lemons are very juicy and sometimes I only get a tablespoon or so of juice from them. If you feel you need more lemon flavor try adding some lemon zest. It’s big on flavor and will intensify the glorious lemon taste.
