Our pineapple mango juice recipe is incredible; it’s free from refined sugars and only uses five ingredients. You can prepare it in under 10 minutes and store it for several weeks.
The drink requires minimal effort to prepare but provides plenty of nutrition to aid digestion. Read on to learn more about how it can improve your lifestyle and how you can prepare it.
Benefits of Pineapple Mango Juice
One of the best benefits of our pineapple mango juice recipe is that it’s a naturally sweet treat and includes no refined sugars. Separately, these two fruits bring a lot to the table, but together they create a brilliant blend of flavor and health benefits.
1. For Digestion
Pineapple is a tropical treasure that brings exotic flavors to any dish. It can provide you with antioxidants like vitamin C that help to combat wrinkles and improve collagen formation for firmer skin.
Another great feature of pineapple juice is its bromelain enzyme. This helps the body to break down proteins for better digestion.
But it’s only in small amounts in pineapple mango juice, and better paired with a fiber-rich meal for optimum digestion.
Mango is also one of those fruits everyone can’t wait to tuck in to, thanks to its flavor and succulence. But there’s more to it than just taste.
One fruit, even without pulp, is laden with vitamins A and B, and as much vitamin C as two oranges. You’ll also get mango fiber along with these vitamins.
Fiber is crucial for improving digestion. One study showed how daily consumption of mango relieved symptoms of chronic constipation.
So the fiber from mango paired with pineapple enzymes combined will create a pro-gut health drink that can do wonders for your digestive system. Then if you add a little ginger you can get even more benefits.
2. For Diabetes
A 2012 study was conducted on rats to show ginger juice’s anti-hyperlipidemic effects. Hyperlipidemia is a condition indicating high-fat content in the blood, and it is the result of high-fat diets and a sedentary lifestyle.
Administering ginger juice significantly reduced hyperlipidemia by lowering cholesterol levels. Although this trial was performed on animals, you can still include ginger juice in your diet as an anti-diabetic measure.
Animal studies are not entirely representative of human conditions, but they help to predict human biology.
How to Make Pineapple Mango Juice
Forget the store-bought pineapple juice that will add more calories than taste to your drink. We’re going to show you how to make this low-calorie pineapple mango drink from scratch at home.
All that’s required is fresh pineapples, mango, ginger, lemon juice, and water. Gather together all the produce, then wash and peel.Jump to Recipe
Cut the mango into wedges and discard the pulp. Cut the pineapple and ginger into smaller sizes that will fit into your juicer, including the pineapple core.
Put the mango wedges into a blender and pulse to a smooth consistency. Run pineapple and ginger through the juicer and collect the juice in a pitcher.
Pour the blended mango juice into the pitcher, followed by lemon juice and water. Stir to combine.
Fill a tall glass with ice and pour in the pineapple mango drink. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and serve immediately, storing any leftovers in the refrigerator.
If you want to end up with another tropical mango juice, try swap in carrots for pineapple. The result can be another fresh and cool fruit juice that’s full of nutritious benefits.
How Long Does Pineapple Mango Juice Last?
This drink can last from 48 hours to 3 days in the refrigerator. But avoid leaving it at room temperature for more than 2 hours, as this can cause it to become unsafe.
When storing, transfer the juice into an airtight container like a mason jar or Ziploc bag. Limiting air exposure lowers the risk of oxidation.
Oxidation reduces the quality of juice, causing it to become less nutritious. And our homemade juice has no preservatives, save for the lemon juice that provides minimal anti-oxidative properties.
Pineapple mango juice can also last for 3 months in the freezer. Freezing enables you to store it at a lower temperature with even less exposure to light and air, thus allowing for longer storage.
To store safely in the freezer, use a freezer-safe jar and leave an inch of space at the top to allow for expansion. When ready to use, leave it to defrost at room temperature and taste for flavor and quality before serving.
Calories in Pineapple Mango Juice
