Make fresh Pineapple juice at home without a juicer. All you need is a blender and if you have the high performance ones like the Blendtec one, you don’t need to strain the juice at all!
If you have been following my posts, you know by now that I got a Blendtec Blender recently and can’t stop going gaga over it. Now I have one more reason to love my blender, the fact that I don’t need a juicer anymore. The reason I didn’t use my juicer as much as my husband would have liked to (he bought it as a gift) is because I don’t like the fact that a juicer strips off all the fibre in the fruits. Enter Blendtec and not only it does a great job of retaining the fibre, it purees the fruit so well that you don’t even have to strain it. I wasn’t sure at first but when I tried making Pineapple Juice for the first time in the blender, it looked and tasted just like the ones they serve in restaurants in India – frothy and so yummy. The best part I didn’t have shell out a bomb to get 100% Pineapple Juice. For best results, do not use the canned pineapple chunks.
- 2 cups pineapple chunks
- 2 cups ice cubes
- 2 tablespoon sugar (as needed)
- 1/2 cup water
- Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend till no chunks of fruit remain and you have a smooth puree.
- If you are using a Blendtec Blender, add all the ingredients in the order listed and select “Whole Juice” or blend on a Medium-High speed for 50-60 seconds.
- Adjust water and sugar to the consistency you desire.
- Serve immediately.
