Makes 1 liter of Pineapple Water with Cucumber and Mint.
- 1/2 pineapple cut into chunks, or 1 20 oz can pineapple chunks
- 1⁄3 cupfresh mint leaves
- 1⁄2 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
- ½ cup ice
Add the pineapple chunks, cucumber rings, and mint leaves to the bottom of a pitcher. Top with ice, this part is important whether you enjoy your water cold or at room temperature as it holds down the fruit to better infuse the water.
Place the pitcher in the fridge, or on your counter top if you like room temperature, for one hour before serving.
When you have poured ½ of the pineapple water from your pitcher, fill back to the top with water. This will help preserve the flavor so you won’t have to start over again when you finish the pitcher. Fill up, up to 6 times in a day, or until the flavor of pineapple is lost.
Freeze cubed pineapple and cucumber slices and drop them in water and bubbly water anytime for a delicious and sweet cucumber detox water drink.
