Don’t forget to label how many bananas you’ve frozen as it is helpful when you need them for a recipe. Thaw the slices and they…

    July 22, 2014mayurisjikoni

    RECIPE: PINEAPPLE MINT JUICE Pineapple Mint Juice is a refreshing, thirst quenching, healthy and a delicious summer drink. I love making pineapple juice whenever pineapples are in season. I prefer to use fresh pineapples as tinned do not taste the same when it comes to juice. Occasionally, the pineapple I buy turns out to be a bit sour. One of the ways I use it up is to prepare pineapple juice and freeze it. That way I have fresh juice pineapple whenever I want. But truth be told juices don’t last for too long in my fridge or freezer. Sometimes, I allow it to thaw a bit and we enjoy as a slush. Can I Make The Juice Without Fresh Mint? Sometimes we don’t get…
