The warm weather is finally here, and a cool, refreshing drink is always appreciated. In Colombia, fresh fruit drinks are very popular and always in season, as fruit is abundant anytime of the year. Variations of one of my favorite drinks, limonada (limeade), are served all over the country. The best places to sample these fresh fruit limeades are at fruit stalls located throughout the cities, beaches and towns.
Limonada de Piña (Pineapple Limeade)
- 1 whole pineapple peeled, cored and cut in medium size chunks
- 6 cups of water
- ½ cup sugar or to your taste
- ¼ cup lime juice
- Working in batches place the pineapple chunks with the water, sugar and lime juice in the blender and blend well.
- Strain the limeade and serve with ice.
I always have a hard time deciding which flavor to have because there are dozens of flavors and they are all fantastic! Some of my favorite ones are coconut, strawberry, mango, watermelon and this Limonada de Piña (Pineapple Limeade).
I can almost taste and smell this lemonade. Never tried it pineapple. Must do!
Tangy and sweet...a very refreshing summer drink!
Fantastic recipes! I've brought some of your recipes to friends and they went crazy over them! Bien chèvre!
Oh what a great twist on a lemonade...just way better this way with pineapple and lime.
i love limeade! i can't believe i've never tried it with pineapple but it's a natural and delicious combination!
This is so easy to make. It looks too good to be that simple. I'm totally trying it.
How do you think mango would taste with the limeade? Hmmmm.
