Pineapple and cucumber blended together make a cool and refreshing drink. The climate in Jamaica is very hot and windy ( dry dusty winds) at this time
4 lbs. pineapple (I used sugar loaf)
1 large cucumber (seeds remove, my preference)
Sugar to sweeten, if you chooses
1 oz. ginger root
enough water to blend ingredients
Wash and peel pineapple and ginger. Cut pineapple, cucumber and ginger into medium size chunks
Put some of the pineapple chunks, cucumber and ginger into a blender and add enough water just to barely cover the ingredients. Blend until well combined
Pour the mixture into a container and repeat the step for the remaining ingredients.
Pour mixture through a strainer and strain again, using a piece of cheese cloth or dish towel.
Sweeten to taste using your choice sweetener, I used granulated sugar
Pour into a jug and put to be chilled or serve with ice
Store in the fridge for up to 1 week
