#1. Pineapple Juice

It’s really important that you select the right pineapple juice if you want to get as many health benefits from this drink as possible.

Fruit juices are high in sugar, and a lot of them are made using concentrates and contain additives.

My favorite pineapple juice is the Lakewood organic pineapple juice. It contains no concentrates, it’s vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, casein-free, and honestly tastes like you are drinking freshly squeezed pineapple juice!

#2. Cranberry Juice

Buying good cranberry juice is also very important. Preferably use unsweetened cranberry juice, and of course the highest quality you can get your hands on.

My recommended cranberry juice for you is Dynamic Health cranberry juice. It’s the tastiest out of the many I have tasted, and it’s also one of the healthiest you can get on the market.

It doesn’t contain any added sugar!

#3. Cranberries

Cranberries

Fresh or dried cranberries, this is optional. I like to serve this drink by adding a handful of cranberries, for color, and something to munch on whilst sipping this drink!

#4. Lime Juice

Sliced lime

Freshly squeezed lime juice really elevates this drink. Both cranberry and pineapple juice can be quite sweet, so cutting through the sweetness by using acid juice from the lime really helps balance out the taste.

#5. Ice

Ice

No drink of juice is ever completed without a lot of ice! Ice really elevates the taste of this drink, and makes it a lot more refreshing.

How To Make Pineapple And Cranberry Juice

There is no rocket science to making this recipe. You will just need to prepare your ingredients and mix them together.

Here’s the method:

  • Mix the cranberry and pineapple juice with the lime juice.
  • Add the ice and cranberries to the serving glasses.
  • Pour the juice over the ice.
  • Serve and enjoy!

How much of this juice should you drink? Well, a glass a day (10-15 ounces) is more than enough to get the benefits you want from this drink.

More than that wouldn’t be necessary.
