Juice of the Month

Pineapple and Coconut Water Juice with a Hint of Mint and Chia Seeds

I wanted to make a really healthy, yet tasty sports-style juice that was ideal for having after a run or work out. This juice is light and refreshing. Perfect for re-hydrating and for a little boost of energy!

You will need:
1 overripe pineapple (skin removed)
35-50g fresh mint
1 litre of coconut water
30-50g chia seeds
(Makes 4-5 servings)

Method:
Using a juicer, alternate adding in the pineapple and mint, starting and ending with pineapple, to insure you get all the mint juice.
Pour into a jug and add in the coconut water and the chia seeds. Allow it to sit until the chia seeds get almost jelly-like.
Then it’s ready to serve – pour into a glass or bring in a bottle to the gym and enjoy!
Best service chilled.

Top Tips:
Coconut water will help keep you hydrated.
Pineapple will give you a quick release of sugar and provide energy, it’s also high in acids with can help break down fats.
Chia seeds provide fibre to keep you fuller for longer, plus its got protein and omega 3.
Mint has a refreshing and cooling effect

Enjoy, Eoin
