Ways to use Pineapple, Cooking and Juicing with Pineapple

Pineapple by itself taste great with natural sweetness. We give you some lovely recipes using Pineapple in Juices, Smoothies, Salads, Stir-Fry and Sandwiches

One of the most appetising and versatile of all tropical fruits is the pineapple. Juicy and flavoursome, it has a unique sweet-sour taste that is hard to resist. Apart from tasting great, it is also a storehouse of goodness, containing a range of nutrients including Calcium, potassium, High Fiber, and Vitamin C. In addition, it is a good source of vitamin B1, vitamin B6, copper and dietary fibre.

Pineapples boast a group of sulphur-containing proteolytic enzymes, which make the fruit an excellent aid to digestion. Fresh pineapples are also rich in Bromelain, which has significant anti-inflammatory effects. Eat a pineapple to reduce swelling in inflammatory conditions such as acute sinusitis, sore throat, arthritis and gout. 

While pineapples are delectable when eaten alone or in a salad or Sandwich or Stir Fry, try these recipes collection the next time you bring home the luscious fruit. My favourite Sandwich is Pineapple, Celery and Cottage Cheese Sandwich as paneer and pineapple always make a great combination.

Cucumbers and pineapples are juicy, refreshing and rich with vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, fibre and water. These foods help in cleansing the system, maintaining body temperature, and hydrate the body. Chopping them up for this Pineapple Cucumber Salad is a great way begin a meal and ensure that you don’t pile on too many calories.

Drink a glassful of this Spinach, Apple and Pineapple Juice to keep you going full force all day! Pineapple is the source of carbohydrate here to provide energy. Taken in the mid-afternoon, it will give you a mentally and physically stress-free evening and still leave you with energy reserves for the rest of the day.

We would love to your your feedback on ways to use Pineapple in the comments section below.

Pineapple and cheese are made for each other. With contrasting textures and absolutely complementary flavours, each helps to highlight the best qualities of the other. The cheese seems to enhance the sweetness of the pineapples, while pineapple extends the same courtesy to the cheese! This grilled sandwich capitalises on the success of this duo. Everything about the Pineapple and Cheese Grilled Sandwich is awesome, right from the buttery crispness of the bread to the gooeyness of molten cheese and the juicy sweetness of pineapples. Relish it hot and fresh.
Be it on a pizza or on a sandwich, pineapple and cottage cheese always make a great combination. This is because the succulent and mellow flavour of cottage cheese contrasts starkly with the crispness and tang of pineapples! Here, we have made a delicious cold sandwich using this evergreen duo, with a sprinkling of fresh celery to add more zest to it. Keep the pineapples chilled till the moment you assemble the Pineapple, Celery and Cottage Cheese Sandwich, and serve it immediately on preparation to enjoy the cool crispness! The sweet and mellowed taste of the sandwich will pair off well with tangy and semi spicy Lentil, Tomato and Spinach Soup .

Here comes a chunky subzi with a tangy taste that will tickle your taste buds! The teamwork of pineapple, capsicum and tomatoes produces an excellent mix of flavours and textures, ranging from crisp to juicy and tangy to spicy. Carom seeds and sesame seeds along with a couple of spice powders add to the natural flavour of the veggies making this an accompaniment par excellence. What makes this subzi all the more interesting is the fact that it uses simple, everyday spices and powders, and the procedure is also hassle-free, so you can opt to make this on any day. Serve with rotis or parathas .

Pineapple and cheese are an evergreen combo. Just two slices of pineapple sandwiched with a slice of cheese makes a lovely snack, which everybody loves to enjoy when pineapples are in season. This Feta and Pineapple Sandwich is a more exotic and filling snack, which makes use of this all-time favourite combo. Pineapples, cheese and capsicum are sandwiched into whole wheat hot dog rolls along with a couple of other ingredients like lettuce and black pepper, which add to the zesty tempo of this sandwich. This sandwich also makes use of a spiced, celery and garlicky flavoured cheese spread. Serve with a bowl of Spicy Tomato Soup and some Masala French Fries to create a mini combo meal.
Stir-Fries are exhilarating. They have a peppy crunch and perky flavours that rev up your taste buds! This tasty Pineapple, Bean Sprouts and Veggie Stir-Fry is no different. It is not only tangy and tongue-tickling but also a visual delight. It has a lot of nutrients and roughage, making it a perfect meal to keep you full and help you lose weight. Use only fresh pineapple juice for this recipe, as readymade juices might have some sugar.

Touched by the herby notes of basil and sweetened lightly with honey, pineapple gives us a really awesome smoothie that is sure to be enjoyed by people of all ages. A pinch of salt is essential to balance the tartness of pineapple and highlight its sweetness instead. This amazing Pineapple Basil Smoothie has the refreshing flavour of pineapple, which seems to taste even better when flavoured with basil. You can garnish this drink with pistachios because the contrasting colour makes the smoothie even more tempting! If you love pineapples, then you must try out other options like the Peach Pineapple Smoothie and the Mango and Pineapple Smoothie too.

An off-beat drink that’s thundering with spices, the Pineapple and Green Capsicum Drink is sure to captivate all your guests. This unique offering combines the spiky taste of capsicum and the sweet tanginess of pineapple with the josh of black salt and spice powders. This drink must be had in small quantities, for the experience to be completely enjoyable, so please put away the tall glasses. We also suggest making this drink just before serving because it tends to decolorize. If you like pineapple juice with combos, then do try these - Peach, Pineapple and Orange Drink and Pineapple, Blueberry and Coconut Drink .
Brilliantly coloured, Pineapple and Papaya Juice is made by combining two very unusual fruits. The enchanting colour compliments the glorious taste of pineapple and papaya. Loaded with vitamin A and iron, this fibre-rich juice is a health-enhancing portion. Papaya and pineapple both have digestive enzymes and help overcome constipation and indigestion. Natural sugars present in them provide energy and stamina. Enjoy with your favourite healthy snacks .
The Black Grape, Strawberry and Pineapple Juice is a nice flavourful drink which you can enjoy at anytime of the day. As this juice is not strained, it also retains more fibre. The best part is that everybody can relish this vitamin C rich juice, and enjoy the benefits of a lovely skin and improved immunity.
Popeye munched on spinach for strength, you can do just that… or drink a glassful of this Spinach, Apple and Pineapple Juice to keep you going full force all day! Pineapple is the source of carbohydrate here to provide energy. Taken in the mid-afternoon, it will give you a mentally and physically stress-free evening and still leave you with energy reserves for the rest of the day. Also, if you are really tired, celery in this juice has a restful and calming effect. To fuel you through several hours in the morning pair it with Herbed Paneer Paratha or Soya and Cauliflower Parathas .
