Body shock!

Well I have officially been back in Cancun for 2 days now, and I am slowly getting used to things again... Hahaha, my body is in utter shock with the high humidity and heat it´s now enduring. I am running the A/C all day, and drinking as much water as I can. I can´t believe in 3 short weeks I lost my ability to acclimatize to the clima here in Cancun. I am hoping I´ll be back to normal next week.

This morning I thought of the perfect thing to help beat the heat : Jugo de Piña. My husband´s family really enjoy making fresh juices almost daily, and I´ve learnt a little bit from them. Back home if it didn´t come from the market, I didn´t drink it. Here I have learnt just how simple it can be, and what a health benefit fresh juices can be.

The recipe I used today is from a food blogger named Laylita, and boy oh boy is it delicious!!

1 Pineapple peeled, cored, and cut into medium sized chunks
6 cups of water
Juice from 1 fresh lime
Sugar to taste (optional)

Working in batches place the pineapple chunks with the water, sugar and lime juice in the blender, and blend well. Strain the juice and serve with ice.

Okay, well I´m off to enjoy the sun as I lost any colour I did have while in Canada the past few weeks!!!

Enjoy !!!

When I come back from Ohio to Veracruz I run the A/C nonstop the first day! Jugo de Pina is my FAV juice, and I like to make my own too. Disfrutalo, amiga!

Linda & Senor - I'm so happy you enjoyed it!!! I find I have to use a little less water for more flavour, but it's really refreshing, isn't it!!

It took us a few days to get used to the weather again too. I sure miss the cooler nights from home.
