Cucumber pineapple drink

pineapple cucumber drink

Pineapple and cucumber blended together make a cool and refreshing drink. The climate in Jamaica is very hot and windy ( dry dusty winds) at this time

Ingredients
4 lbs. pineapple (I used sugar loaf)
1 large cucumber (seeds remove, my preference)
Sugar to sweeten, if you chooses
1 oz. ginger root
enough water to blend ingredients

Method
Wash and peel pineapple and ginger. Cut pineapple, cucumber and ginger into medium size chunks

Put some of the pineapple chunks, cucumber and ginger into a blender and add enough water just to barely cover the ingredients. Blend until well combined

Pour the mixture into a container and repeat the step for the remaining ingredients.

Pour mixture through a strainer and strain again, using a piece of cheese cloth or dish towel.

Sweeten to taste using your choice sweetener, I used granulated sugar

Pour into a jug and put to be chilled or serve with ice

Store in the fridge for up to 1 week
