Pineapple Ginger Iced Tea
Serves: Serves 4
  • 1 Pineapple (organic, if possible), washed well
  • 1" piece of Fresh Ginger
  • 1 small Turmeric Root (about 2" long)
  • 8 cups Water
  • Juice of 1 small Lemon
  • ¼ cup Raw Honey, plus more as needed
  • Ice
  1. Place your pineapple on your work surface and cut the leafy top off. Discard top. Cut the bottom of the pineapple off, as close to the base as possible, and discard.
  2. Cut the skin off of the pineapple and place in a large saucepan. Cut the pineapple flesh from around the core and save for another use (like eating!). Cut the pineapple core into thin slices and place in the pan with the pineapple skins.
  3. Thinly slice the ginger and turmeric root and place in the pan with the pineapple.
  4. Add 8 cups of water to the pan. Place on the stove over medium/high heat and bring to a boil. Once the water starts to boil, reduce the heat to a slow simmer and cover the pan. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  6. Pour the tea through a fine mesh strainer into a large pitcher and discard solids.
  7. Add the lemon juice and honey to the tea and whisk until the honey is dissolved. Taste and add more honey if a sweeter tea is desired.
  8. Serve over ice!
