Pineapple Agua Fresca and an OXO Giveaway
I love pineapple everything, but I don’t love peeling and coring pineapples. And you’ll never see me pay grocery store prices for cut pineapple, because I’m just too cheap. So when I was able to try OXO’s new pineapple peeler and corer tool, I jumped at the chance. Well, actually my husband did, because I always rope him into peeling and coring my pineapples and he loves gadgets.
This little gadget is so easy to use and it peels and cores a pineapple in less than a minute. I love it!
It helps me make delicious and healthy pineapple recipes like this pineapple aqua fresca that much faster. Agua frescas are something we love in the summer. This pineapple mint version is just heavenly. You can add a little agave nectar for sweetner if you’d like. This pineapple was plenty sweet enough for us though, I didn’t add any additional sweetener.
