Let us introduce…Pink Pineapple Lemonade! You’ve seen the hype around the Pinkglow™ Pineapple, (and, if you haven’t, let us introduce you here , here, and here) and now we’ve created a lemonade recipe to bring warmth this winter!
But first, what is the Pink Pineapple, and, why is it Pink?
The Jewel of the Jungle is grown in a remote paradise in a South-Central region of Costa Rica, giving it the ideal climate and soil for growing pineapples. Del Monte is the producer of this rare treat and has spent over 16 years perfecting the taste, color and aromas. This amount of production has brought on aromas and flavors creating a rare treat. Also, a fun fact – the core of the Pink Pineapple can be eaten to leave no waste behind!
Why is it Pink?
The Pink Pineapple gets its hue from a natural pigment called lycopene. This pigment is also found in tomatoes, grapefruit and watermelon.
What does it taste like?
It has similar notes as a regular pineapple but is sweeter, juicier and tastes like candy; many saying it resembles a pink starburst!
See what all the hype is about and order the Pinkglow™ Pineapple here!
And, for the lemonade, get the tastiest, freshest lemons here (we recommend Meyer Lemons because they’re juicer and sweeter which makes for the perfect base to a lemonade). OR, if you really want to have fun with it and make everything Pink, we suggest our Pink Lemons!
