Recipe from our co-founder Carolina Aragao Safi: pineapple & mint juice


When I was a teenager, my bothers were tasked to make juice for supper. We took turns each evening, but one juice came back very often: our favourite, pineapple & mint.

In Brazil, people frequently drink freshly squeezed juices. There are still plenty of snack places (lanchonete) where you can buy them. Being a tropical country, imagine all the types of blends and flavours you can get!

Seeing my kids grow up, I want to get them used to fresh juice instead of bottled as much as possible. And since we grow tons of mint in our garden, I like doing this easy recipe… They love it, and so do I as it brings back so many good memories.

Hope you enjoy it!

Pineapple & mint

Time: 10 minutes | Yield: 4 people


  • ½ pineapple diced
  • 1 ½ liter of water
  • Mint (usually a small bunch, but it can be as much as you want, to your taste) 


As easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Put everything in the blender and crush for 1-2 minutes or until the pineapple is pureed
  2. Pour in a pitcher while straining it
  3. Serve in wine glasses with ice 

The same recipe has a variation with lime instead of pineapple. Simply dice 4 limes (skin included), add 2 tbsp sugar and blend everything with the water.
