This pineapple mint water will not only add taste to your water but also help detox your liver and help you lose weight.
Let me tell you why I often make this peppermint water. Or, dare I say, why I focus so much on wellness in general?
Over the past few years, I’ve suffered from a few infections here and there (I plan to share that as an inspirational story someday). But for now, I’ll tell you that one of my issues was an overproduction of mucus and minor inflammation. I was able to combat these issues by paying attention to what my body was ingesting.
When I was looking for solutions to this problem, I came across Healthline, a place I often revisit. There, I learn a lot when it comes to matters of health.
In this article, they explain very well what are the health benefits of pineapple juice.
Little did I know that my surfing for more information might change my life.
So, after I realized that consuming pineapple water can help in clearing mucus from the lungs and its solid inflammatory properties, I started drinking it often.
Well, sometimes it can be boring to eat one thing the same way over and over again.
So, why not change the way you eat your pineapple or even the water we need to consume daily!
Hence today’s little cube. Flavoring water with some pineapples.
My dear readers, if you’ve never tried adding a few pieces of pineapple to your water, I’d advise you to try it today.
Mind you, this pineapple mint water, or pineapple-infused water, as others call it, is easy to make. You don’t have to be an expert on drinks or food in general.
Pineapple-mint water is a perfect drink for those who don’t find still water interesting or for those who like flavored water, as I do.
So, without further ado, let’s make yours today.
- 1 large pineapple
- 1 liter of water
- About 3-4 sprigs of mint
Instructions to make pineapple-mint water
- Peel and cut the pineapple into chunks.
- Put the pineapple chunks in a large jar.
- Add some mint to the jar.
- Pour the water into the jar.
- Cover the jar and let the water steep for a few hours. I like to let it steep overnight or make it in the morning and take it at night. Note: It’s good to put it in the fridge if possible.
- Later/the next day, strain your pineapple mint water and enjoy.
If you are not very picky, the pineapple pieces in the water are still good to eat. Therefore, it would be good not to throw them away.
