Ingredients

  • 1 pineapple peel, crown, scraps
  • 1 knob ginger
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 lit water
  • 4-5 teabags

Instructions

  • To make slimming pineapple tea, you can cut and simmer an entire ripe pineapple along with its skin in 2 liters of water, and add 2 cinnamon sticks for flavor. You can also blend it once boiled and add it to water and heat. If you don't want too strong a flavor of the cinnamon in your tea, just put one stick.

  • Now, add 4-5 tea bags to the boiling water and allow them to steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Stir in 2 teaspoons of sugar to it and let it simmer. In case, you use pineapple juice instead of actual pineapple pieces, you can add the juice in this stage. 
  • Switch off the gas stove and cover the pineapple tea for 2-3 minutes, allowing the tea flavor to completely seep in. Serve it, if you wish to have it hot. If you prefer to have it cold, refrigerate it for a while.
