This recipe is not authentic Jamaican. It's an excellent method of  blending fruit and vegetable together to make a refreshing drinks. I did not use sugar, because it was my sugar-free day.  I regulate the amount of sugar that I consumed. Remember we need sugar for energy; sugar is not bad, it’s the amount we consumed creates the problem. However, you can use granulated sugar  to sweeten the drinks if you desire. I do not use alternative sugar sweetener

carrot pineapple drinks


6 carrots (scraped, washed, cut into small pieces)
2 medium size pineapple (peeled, cut into chunks)
piece of ginger (washed, scraped)
2 cups water

Note: The ginger is the middle man who pulls the flavour from the carrot and the pineapple to balance out the taste of the drinks. However, be careful because Mr Ginger has a strong flavour if too much is used it will over-shadow the taste of the pineapple and carrot and the drinks might taste bitter




In a blender add all the ingredients and blend until the mixture is well blended, about 1 minute or 2.


Then strain off the mixture through a piece of clean cheese cloth into a container

Sweeten if desire. Serve chilled or with ice cubes

I use the cheese cloth instead of a strainer because I do not want any of the puree or pulp, (as it is called in Jamaica to remain in the drinks after straining. Because of the holes in the strainer, some of the puree will escape into the drinks. The cheese cloth is ideal for straining because no puree can escape into the drinks
