June 27th is National Pineapple Day, and June is National Iced Tea Month. So combine the two with this pineapple iced tea recipe from Melissa’s Produce.

You can use whatever type of tea you prefer: black, green, herbal or white.

Melissa’s used Baby South African baby pineapples for this recipe. Also called Baby Queen Victorian pineapples, among other names, baby pineapples are also grown in Brazil, Hawaii and Thailand.

Resembling a regular pineapple, the baby pineapple is about half size of a standard pineapple: 5 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter.

It has a conventional pineapple taste, but tends to be sweeter than full-grown varieties. Because it is less fibrous, the core is edible—there’s no need to remove it.

This small fruit is considered a super fruit because of its high nutrient content. A super fruit is nutrient rich and is high in antioxidants,

Of course, you can substitute a conventional pineapple.
Ingredients For 6-8 Servings

  • 8 cups water
  • 12 tea bags
  • 6 South African baby pineapples, peeled; halved; sliced thick
    Optional Garnishes

  • 1 South African baby pineapples; peeled, halved, sliced
  • Melissa’s Sugar Cane Swizzle Stix

    1. BRING 8 cups of water to a boil and then remove from the heat. Steep the tea bags in the water for 10 minutes.

    2. REMOVE the tea bags, squeezing out the excess liquid, and discard.

    3. PLACE the pineapple slices in a 4-quart pitcher and pour the tea over the top. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate to chill.

    4. SERVE over ice and garnish with the pineapple and swizzle stix.
