Pineapple-Mint Juice, the "goosebump" drink (Suco Arrepio)

Pin It I have yet to understand why here in the U.S. as well as in Canada you see a smoothie shop in every corner and every mall, but can't find places that sells fresh fruit juices. To find just a simple freshly squeezed orange juice is almost impossible, and when you do find, it is really expensive.
I love having a glass of fresh juice, I have it with my meals, as a snack, or as a dessert alternative sometimes. I will try to post more fresh juices here and perhaps inspire more people to try them.

This juice is commonly known in my hometown as "Goose Bump" and I think it's because of the combination of mint and pineapple. It makes your mouth tickle. It is so refreshing. I like serving this juice when friends come over because I know everyone loves it.

Pineapple-Mint Juice:

2 slices of fresh pineapple, cored
1 tall glass of cold water
a handful of fresh mint leaves
ice cubes
sugar to taste

Blend it all!! Adjust sugar to your liking.

It does sound like it might give me goosebumps! And I can say that in Italy, a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice is ridiculously expensive. We found out the hard way with two on our vacation this summer. Unbelievable!

I had this at a restaurant last month and I've been looking for this recipe since. I finally made it tonight and it was great. Thank you for sharing!
