For a pineapple mango juice recipe that’s free from refined sugars and only uses 5 ingredients— ours is incredible. You can prepare it in under 10 minutes, and burn the calories off in 25.
It’s a beverage that requires only minimal effort to prepare but provides plenty of nutrition to aid digestion. Read on to learn more about how it can improve your lifestyle and how you can start to prepare it.
Benefits of Pineapple Mango Juice
The most important benefit of our pineapple mango juice recipe is that it includes no refined sugars, and is naturally sweet. Still, how do pineapple and mango juice’s nutritional profiles perform when combined?
1. For Digestion
Pineapple is a tropical treasure that brings an exotic flavor to any dish. It can provide you with antioxidants that help to combat wrinkles and improve collagen formation for firmer skin.
One main feature in pineapple juice, however, is its bromelain enzyme. It helps the body to break down proteins for better digestion.
But it’s only in small amounts in this drink, and better paired with a fiber-rich meal for optimum digestion.
Mango is also one of those fruits everyone can’t wait to tuck in to for its flavor and succulency. But there’s more to it than savor.
One fruit, without pulp, is laden with vitamins A and B, and as much vitamin C as two oranges. In this drink, however, you’ll get fiber along with these vitamins.
Fiber is crucial for improving digestion, as one study showed how daily consumption of mango relieved symptoms of chronic constipation.
So pairing mango with pineapple creates a pro-gut health drink that can do wonders for your digestive system. But adding ginger gives even more benefits.
2. For Diabetes
A 2012 study was conducted on rats to show ginger juice’s anti-hyperlipidemic effects. Hyperlipidemia is a condition indicating high-fat content in the blood, and it results from high-fat diets and a sedentary lifestyle.
Administering ginger juice significantly reduced insulin-dependant hyperlipidemia.
Although this trial was performed on animals, you can still include ginger juice in your diet as an anti-diabetic measure. Animal studies are not entirely representative of human conditions, but they help to understand human biology.
How to Make Pineapple Mango Juice
Forget the store-bought pineapple juice that will add more calories than taste. We’re going to show you how to make this pineapple mango drink from home.
All it requires is fresh pineapples, mango, ginger, lemon juice, and water. Gather together all the produce and wash and peel them.
Cut pineapple and ginger into small sizes that will fit into your juicer, including the pineapple core. Cut the mango into wedges and discard the pulp.
Add the wedges into a blender and pulse to a smooth consistency. Run pineapple and ginger through the juicer while collecting the juice in a pitcher.
Pour blended mango juice into the pitcher, followed by lemon juice and water, then stir to combine.
Fill a tall glass with ice and pour in the pineapple mango drink. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and serve it immediately, storing any leftovers in the refrigerator.
If you’d like a less dense beverage, you can substitute mango for a lighter fruit. We tried cucumber and the result is a more refreshing juice with interesting health perks.
How Long Does Pineapple Mango Juice Last?
This drink can last from 48 hours to 3 days in the refrigerator. But avoid leaving it at room temperature for more than 2 hours, as this can cause it to become unsafe.
When storing, transfer the juice into an airtight container like a mason jar or Ziploc bag. Less air exposure means there’s a lower risk of your drink suffering oxidation.
Oxidation reduces the quality of juice to leave it less nutritious. And our homemade juice has no preservatives, save for the lemon juice that provides minimal anti-oxidative properties.
Pineapple mango juice can also last for 3 months in the freezer. Freezing stores it at a lower temperature with even less exposure to light and air, thus allowing for longer storage.
To store safely in the freezer, use a freezer-safe jar and leave an inch of space to allow for expansion. When ready to use, leave it to defrost at room temperature and taste for flavor and quality before serving.
Our pineapple mango juice contains 88 calories per (8 oz) serving. Compare it to a branded mango pineapple juice beverage that contains roughly 1.5 times more calories.
The branded variety also contains more sugar (27 grams), whereas ours contains only 19 grams of natural sugars. That’s only 4% of your total caries on a 2000-calorie diet.
It takes 20 minutes of moderate work to burn calories from the sugar in this drink— about a mile’s walk. It only takes 8 minutes to prepare it, and you can start now.
