Fresco de Piña

Fall is here, and what better way to enjoy this beautiful weather than with a refreshing homemade pineapple juice!

My mom and grandma have been making their own version of pineapple juice, called Fresco de Piña, for as long as I can remember. It's not your typical pineapple though.

This recipe calls for the pineapple skin and core, not the actual fruit. These parts of the pineapple are filled with so many nutrients and are a great way to use the leftovers of the fruit that you would normally just throw away.

Not only does it taste good, but it's also healthy since there are hardly any calories. All you need is a whole pineapple, apple, spices, and water.  I recently started incorporating Emergen-C® Super Orange to my Fresco de Piña.  It's packed with Vitamin C plus other key antioxidants such as zinc and manganese to support your immune system along with B Vitamins to enhance energy naturally*.

Emergen-C® dietary supplements are the delicious way to start your day and a great way to add more fizziness and flavor to my drink. Hover over the below photo to shop for the Emergen-C® shown.

Bring the spices and water up to a boil. Then add fruit, and let it boil for about an hour.

I prefer to have my Fresco de Piña chilled. After it cools down in the pot, strain and refrigerate to allow all the spices and fruit flavors to concentrate.

After it's nice and cold, I serve myself a glass and add one packet of Emergen-C® Super Orange. It's a delicious way to start my day.

I found the Emergen-C® Super Orange in the lower shelf of the Vitamin and Supplements aisle at my local Walmart. Make sure to also try to Emergen-C® Blueberry-Açai and Emergen-C® Immune+® Gummies Orange.
