TROPICAL PINEAPPLE TURMERIC COOLER


Man, it’s been hot in Calgary lately (not that I’m complaining)! I’ve been craving lots of tropical fruit and fresh juice to help keep me cool and nourished, so today’s recipe is my latest fresh juice concoction! My Tropical Pineapple Turmeric Cooler is a blend of sweet pineapple, powerhouse carrot, hydrating watermelon, spicy ginger and healing turmeric, rounded out with a bright splash of lemon. I’ve been enjoying it lately post-morning workout, but it’s a versatile recipe that can be enjoyed anytime of the day or night when you need a fresh, sunny pick-me-up! The invigorating ingredient deck always gives me tons of energy to fuel the rest of my morning and it also aids in digestion. Whip up a batch in the A.M. for a tropical kick-start, or enjoy it with a little Caribbean rum on a hot summer night (go on, put some rum in your fresh juice — I’m not gonna judge you!). Cheers to a happy, healthy summer!

In a juicing rut and need to shake up your menu? This is just the recipe! The combination of flavours is really delicious, but also swimming with amazing health benefits. One of the reasons I love this Tropical Pineapple Turmeric Cooler so much is it helps to aid digestion, making it a great option for those of us with sensitive tummies. Pineapple is packed full of digestive enzymes, ginger can can help settle your stomach and turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent with medicinal qualities. Carrots are brimming with so many important vitamins, nutrients and minerals — including a mega dose of vitamin A. Lemons help aid the body in detoxification, but did you know they also provide iron and protein? I always like to add a bit of citrus to my fresh juices to brighten them up and sunny lemon balances the sweet and spicy flavour profile of this tropical cooler perfectly!

A word of caution — be careful slicing up the turmeric, or you may give yourself an unintentional ombre manicure (and it’s not a cute look!). Turmeric is a gorgeous, vivid orange colour that will stain skin and anything else it comes in contact with. I had just given myself a gel manicure the day before I shot this recipe and ended up with lilac-and-yellow ombre nails! Wear gloves or wash your hands immediately (and vigorously) after handing the turmeric. You can always add some baking soda to your hand soap to make it more powerful and aid in stain removal.

2. Add ingredients one at a time to your Hurom Slow Juicer (or similar), starting with an ingredient that isn’t as juicy (like ginger), and alternating with an ingredient that makes lots of juice (like pineapple). This will ensure that the juicy ingredients flush the not-so-juicy ingredients through the juicer and you’ll get more of them in your cup!

3. Once you’ve juiced all of your ingredients, stir the juice and pour over ice.

4. Add a fun garnish of your choice and enjoy — I used some pineapple leaves (just pluck them from the centre of the pineapple) and tropical umbrellas!

    You’ve outdone yourself this time!! Turmeric and ginger?! The disease-fighters in this cocktail(eh?) are on fire! Beautiful styling as always. Can you come over and style my food for me? k thanks.

    • Reply Justine June 10, 2016 at 9:40 am

      Thanks so much, Dylan! It is so refreshing. Let me know if you whip up a batch! I had so much fun styling these photos… I mean, those little umbrellas?! They jumped out at my and I knew I had to use them! It was also a particularly good week hunting for styling props. Cheers, girl!

    Thanks for the turmeric tip. I’ve never worked with fresh turmeric before, but I am look forward to try it in this drink!

    • Reply Julia June 10, 2016 at 9:35 am

      *looking forward to try it, I meant to say.

      • Reply Justine June 10, 2016 at 9:41 am

        Thanks, Julia! My nails are still a little stained — turmeric is such a powerful little plant! I’d love your feedback if you try the cooler. Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Mel | avirtualvegan.com June 10, 2016 at 9:44 am

    I haven’t used my juicer in ages and this has given me the inspiration to go dust it off and juice. You’ve got such beautiful flavours going on and it’s so nutritious. I might well have to add a splash of rum now that you have planted that idea in my head. I can kid myself into thinking it’s good for me with all of those other great ingredients!

    • Reply Justine June 10, 2016 at 9:49 am

      Thanks, Mel. I figure since the recipe makes so much you can have a big glass for breakfast and then make a better-for-you rum cocktail later on! Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend — please let me know if you try it!

    I love the pictures for this recipe, Justine! They have a beautiful tropical looking glow. I haven’t been able to get fresh turmeric here (ridiculous) but might try this with a little powdered turmeric anyway. It’s been crazy hot here too, and this drink looks perfect to cool down with.

    • Reply Justine June 10, 2016 at 10:19 am

      Hey Alexandra! Powdered turmeric would totally work — I would try about a 1/2 teaspoon to start and adjust accordingly. I purchase fresh turmeric at Superstore, they typically stock it at this time of year. I also have luck at TNT, but I’m not sure if you have those stores where you are (in the Okanagan?). Anyway, thanks for the sweet words and I hope you love the recipe! Cheers.

    Looks delicious!!:P Not to mention healthy with the turmeric and ginger! Can’t wait to try this out when it gets really hot!

    • Reply Justine June 10, 2016 at 10:52 am

      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, Markus. Cheers!

    OH my goodness this cooler looks SO delicious, cutely styled and sounds healthy … perfect combo!! I love watermelon juice so much – we were presented with ice cold freshly made watermelon juice on a recent trip to Mexico and I can’t stop craving it… I’ve been wanting to try more turmeric in my life and this seems like a great way to do it. Thanks Justine! ^__^

      Hey Lindsay, I’m so glad I could inspire your juicing menu! Please drop me a note if you try the recipe. Thanks for visiting! 🙂

  • Reply Sean June 10, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    Kudos for using fresh turmeric! I think that’s an ingredient that scares a lot of people away (it’s also on my Diversivore to-do list for an ingredient page, partly for that reason). This looks CRAZY refreshing and I love it. I also love the photos – they’ve got a delightful tiki-vintage vibe going to them. Great work Justine!

    • Reply Justine June 10, 2016 at 3:25 pm

      Thanks so much, Sean! Admittedly, the only thing I use turmeric for regularly is curry. I thought it would be amazing in a fresh juice and it turns out it is! And the tiki-vintage vibe is exactly what I was going for — so many tropical looking vintage props popped out at me this week when I went out in search of styling inspiration. I’m going to head over to Diversivore later tonight to get the deets on your green rice! Cheers, my friend.

    I appreciate your note about manicures & turmeric! I’m totally the type of girl to not even think about those things!
    It was hot here too, but then yesterday, it was about 8 or 10 degrees and grey + rainy in Montreal. Miserable! Today was better. I hope it’s not a sign that summer will be up and down…

    • Reply Justine June 10, 2016 at 7:21 pm

      I’ve got your back, girl! Ruining a fresh gel manicure sucks! Haha.

      It’s a little cooler here today, too. Honestly, with all the crazy June weather we’ve had in Alberta the last few years, as long as it’s not flooding, snowing or burning I’ll take it! 😉 Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Cassie | Crumb Kitchen June 11, 2016 at 6:20 am

    Beautiful as usual, Justine! I particularly loved that you used a necklace in your photography. It adds a little pop of colour and texture that you can’t get from traditional props like hand towels.

    As for the drink, WOW. Turmeric in a drink?! That’s genius. Can’t wait to try it!

    • Reply Justine June 11, 2016 at 11:45 am

      Thanks, Cassie! When I’m doing styling work I search from props by colour — and had just picked up the necklace earlier this week (on sale for $5!) at H&M. It had the vibe I was going for so I decided to throw it in to tie the colour story together. I’m glad you liked it! If you do try the recipe I’d love your feedback. Cheers!

    Love turmeric, make drinks with it all the time, but your recipe is a little different! Looks so tasty. Pinned!

      Thanks, Elaine! I haven’t come across many turmeric drinks — I’d love it if you could drop me some links to your recipes! Cheers!
