Pineapple is the flavour all this week at Blogging Marathon - its my chosen fruit , and I am gonna be making three yummy delights with this fruit that I absolutely adore... Some of us may have some rashes or itching while eating this, but for those who are tolerant towards this tropical delight do make sure the 'eyes' or seeds on the fruit is duly removed. Pineapple is also known to have bromeline - a natural chemical used in weightloss and also to restore acid-alkaline balance in the body...
Today, I kickoff this week's dish with a Tropical Cooler with Pineapple and Fresh Tender Coconut water. Addition of Coconut water is optional, but its a sure party pleaser and a wonderful alternative to the usual Pineapple juice. Serve it up at any party and I am sure its a hit. Use Canned / Tetrapak based Coconut water and Canned Pineapple if you dont have access to fresh fruits and Coconut water , but nothing beats the natural freshness of pure foods, does it ?
