It’s going to be raining Pineapples at Brains & Beans this week! yay!
Well, that was a slight exaggeration. There will be four variations of Pineapple like: Lassi, smoothie, Cake and Rice. Yes, rice!
Stick around and find out what’s it all about!
It’s no rocket science and is certainly not complicated.
This is one of the times where I try to make ‘most out of anything.’ I rarely ate pineapple as a kid, simply because it was expensive and most of the fruit was wasted away in the name of ‘shucking the shrubs.’
It was heart-breaking to see so much of the fruit going into the dustbin. Pineapple was also thought to increase the body heat and living in a hot country didn’t seem to do any justice in adding them to the shopping list.
As an adult, I seem to buy a lot of those fruits that wasn’t good for me when I was little. They are delicious, I cannot help it!
This tea is made with concentrated pineapple juice and steeped or boiled tea with a little bit of lemon juice and a sweetener of your choice. That’s it and you are good to go.
Some people say the eye of pineapple(the dark brown rounds you see when you scrape off the tough exterior) won’t do any harm since its a fibre and they include it in their diet. I prefer to carve them out. Ofcourse, it’s work but saves the fruit.
The tough interior is not used much in recipes. But you can simply much on it. Why waste when you can put your teeth to work!
