Ferment your pineapple.
If I have a pineapple that is past it’s best, I love to make this version of Tepache, which is originally made with pineapple skin. For this recipe of the pineapple, In the event that the skin isn’t looking great, carefully remove the skin, trying to remove as little of the flesh as possible and then slice the pineapple into even pieces.
Place the pineapple pieces into a sterilised glass jar, then make a sugar solution with 500ml of room temperature water and honey or organic cane sugar, stirring to dissolve the sweetener into the liquid, pour this over the pineapple, adding more water if needed to entirely cover the pineapple.
Place a glass weight on top of the pineapple to prevent any parts of the pineapple showing above the surface of the liquid.
Cover the ferment with a cloth over the top of the jar, sealed with an elastic band or string to prevent anything from getting inside.
Leave this to ferment for two days, then with the lid sealed for a further two days. Taste every day by pouring a little into a glass to taste.
After this time, make the smoothie by decanting the liquid into a glass bottle, retaining the pineapple.
Add the second set of the ingredients into a high powdered blender and blend until smooth. Serve straight away with a sprinkle of seeds or bee pollen to suit your individual taste.
The remainder of the pineapple and liquid can be stored in the fridge ready to make more smoothies or used in cocktails or other drinks as you wish.
