Pineapple Mint Frothy Drink

Pineapple Mint Frothie

Houston played a cruel joke on us earlier this week.

If you thought it was hot outside, it was more hot inside our home. While not too hot outside (highs of 90F/32C), inside our home, it was 86F/29C. It was still 86F inside, after an overnight low of 80F/27C.

Yes, our air conditioner had stopped working.

Sweaty times.

Rob suffered the brunt of it, as he stayed at home (to work) and greet the 3 separate repairmen. The first 2 could not reach the roof with their ladders. Thankfully, the third team was a charm. By this time, it was closer to 9 pm at night but when the cool air began to circulate through the house, it felt like heaven.

Truthfully, I had a long day at work but I was not rushing back to a hot and humid home. When I finally arrived, all I wanted was a cool drink. We have almost finished the frozen fruit in our freezer and this certainly hit the spot. I would not have considered something so simple as pineapple and mint, but while we were in Toronto last week, we sampled a delicious pineapple-apple-mint juice from Yam Chops. Imagine my surprise after a quick spin in the blender, the froth had taken over. It was glorious! It settled a bit as I went looking for my camera, but I think you get the idea. Definitely the epitome of a frothy drink.

sweetener, to taste (don’t use honey as it will solidify in the cool liquid)

    This sounds like the perfect thing to drink when it’s way too hot (outside (or inside)! I love the simplicity of the pineapple-mint combination.

    OMG! This sounds insanely awesome! So simple, but I love adding mint to everything right now. And it’s just after 11am and already 85 here… it’s going to be a scorcher. So refreshing sounding =)

    No A/C in that kind of heat is just cruel! Glad it got fixed!! And that you had this refreshing beverage waiting for you when you got home!
