Refreshing Pineapple Limeade Recipe

Summer is here! Days are getting hotter and the need to stay hydrated is a must. Lately I’ve been infusing my regular boring water with slices of lemon and lime.

It really got me thinking about creating homemade juice while incorporating mint and basil from the overgrown plants I have.

This morning my son asked for pineapple . . . boom! I started concocting this delicious and refreshing summer drink: a pineapple limeade recipe. Now you can too.

Cut pineapple chunks in a bowl and lime

Pineapple Limeade Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 cups chilled water
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks (canned, fresh or frozen)
  • 3 fresh limes
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • Handful of basil leaves
Pitcher of water with a bowl of pineapple chunks and limes

Fill your pitcher with the chilled water. I used four cups because that was half of my pitcher.

Pour in the pineapple juice and stir. For this recipe I used two cans of pineapple chunks, so the juice was drained from that.

Five cut limes and a knife
Limes being squeezed into a pitcher

Cut each lime in half and squeeze the juice into the pitcher. Place the halves of lime in a small bowl and set aside.

1/4 cup of sugar
Stir pineapple chunks into the pitcher

Stir in the sugar and pineapple chunks. Use this time to test the sweetness of the limeade and adjust the flavor by adding a tablespoon of sugar to make it sweeter or a 1/4 cup of water to make it less sweet. I added a bit extra sugar . . . what can I say, I’m a rebel!

Now toss in all those luscious herb leaves! Take one half of the squeezed lime, cut slices and add to the pitcher. Stir for about 30 seconds.

Take a large glass, drop in a few ice cubes and fill ‘er up! Enjoy being refreshed by the yummy lime zest and sweet pineapple.
