Dairy-Free Pineapple-Cucumber Mint Cooler

Now that the warmer weather seems here to stay, I have started my annual rotation of what I eat. It’s just like rotating your wardrobe seasonally, I spring-clean my (and my family’s) breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

There are foods I start craving when it starts heating up, like juice, which has become one of my everyday, feel-good foods in the last few years. Once you get juicing, you start to improvise based on several things: 1) what fruit and veggies are in your fridge 2) seasonal finds at your local farmers’ market and 3) what the kids will drink (and love!).

That said, my consciously healthy husband is a huge pineapple snacker. Maybe it’s for the antioxidants or the burst of sweet-sour flavor. Either way, I decided to throw some in the juicer the other day along with two of my favorite juicing ingredients, cucumber and mint. It was love at first sip—for the whole family—and a refreshing drink on a hot day.
