Gingerly Sage Pineapple Fusion with Chili Lime

Gingerly Sage Pineapple Fusion with Chili Lime | Seed Plant Water Grow

We now live in a time where healthy food options and self care are both influential components of daily life and as such people are seeking more holistic ways of living outside of their known boundaries. That’s exciting because the spread of this healthy awareness can produce shock waves of amazing possibilities in how we connect to ourselves, others and the earth. We can become educated beyond our operating senses and allow new ones to develop. But with this path of enlightenment there are definitely some challenges. For example, the art of kitchen love, cooking and creating is slowly being replaced by this ever growing wellness industry. It’s taking people out of the kitchen where the actual art of engaging health and it’s healing properties are seeded and replacing it with accessibility. Time spent cooking and creating is time honored, through conscious interaction it holds a special kind of energy. It’s restorative. It holds space for movement and family bonding. It’s where family stories and recipes are created and then passed down. So my goal with this food story adventure was to entice anyone who needs a simple something to create and that through this might become inspired to create more. We ARE in the season of renewal but the message doesn’t have to solely rest in a symbolic representation, it can actually show up visually, reminding us that within our own lives lie a powerful creator. Continue below to check out this week’s Gingerly Sage Pineapple Fusion with Chili Lime adventure, a delightful elixir prepared two ways. And also be sure to check out this week’s Weekly Insight Series discussing the topics of Renewal and Discipline:)


Here’s what you need to get started…

Whole Pineapple(or equivalent cubed)

Lemon Juice

Water

Chili Lime Seasoning(Trader Joe’s)

OK, let’s start by preparing our Pineapple. Cut away the top, bottom, sides and core the center then cut the remaining pieces into cubes. Place in a high speed blender. Then add approx 1’4 cup Lemon Juice, 1/4 cup Water, 1/2 tsp Ginger Powder, 1/2 tsp Sage Powder and Himalayan Salt to taste.

Now these measurements are simply a starting point. This recipe is meant to not be exact on purpose because there is no wrong way to go about combining these ingredients. My hope is that you yourself will explore and find that palette pleasing sweet spot. Experiment and be the alchemist. I know it’s easier to follow something exactly but engaging creatively in the kitchen with a few simple ingredients is a great catalyst for more culinary adventures. So add a little more, a little less of any one the ingredients and taste test till you find the combination that speaks to you.

The last thing is to coat the rim of your glass in Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Seasoning(not sponsored) or any variation more pleasing to your own palette. Just rub a little lemon or lime juice around the rim then dip into a plate full of the seasoning. It’s that simple. Serve chilled or over ice(or even perhaps with your favorite spirits). ENJOY!!!!!

BONUS

A few years ago I created a Peace, Love and Hope Pineapple Pop story that became a favorite here at Seed Plant Water Grow. Inspired by that adventure and in the spirit of renewal here’s another one. Take the Gingerly Sage Pineapple Fusion that you made up above and pour into your favorite pop mold. If you’re still wanting to retain the Chili Lime Seasoning addition then simply toss a 1/2 tsp into the bottom of the pop mold before pouring in the mixture. Place in the freezer. Set a timer for 20-30 minutes and start working on your Pop affirmations. Write whatever speaks to your heart. Remember to scribble only at the top portion that will be visible above the mixture. Then place your sticks into the pop molds and place back into the freezer. Once they are ready, ENJOY:)
