I have been wanting to post about this drink for a long time now. During our last trip to Mexico I discovered a drink made with pineapple, basil and lime but was labeled “cleansing drink”. I thought “hmm… interesting combination!” and gave it a try. I loved it! It’s what I had for breakfast every day while there and now YOU can give it a try.
A note on the cleansing part… it might send you to the bathroom if you drink it early in the morning but believe me when I tell you that you’ll feel great!
2 cans of pineapple juice
3 cans of water
1/2 cup chopped basil
Sugar to taste
Pineapple and basil are a refreshing combination!
Once you empty the cans of juice into your pitcher fill them up with water and mix with the juice. Add the chopped basil, lime juice and sugar if desired. Make it even prettier by adding slices of lemon and lime. OR you can put all the ingredients in a blender for a frothy finish and garnish with mint or more basil. This drink is SO refreshing and the basil blends beautifully with the pineapple. Enjoy!
