While pineapple might have become the summer’s favorite flavor, not all pineapple beverages are equal. Although that sip can be quite refreshing, no one wants to overindulge. Why not shake up this refreshing Pineapple Passionfruit beverage at home and save both on calories and dollars spent.

Although many people are craving the flavor, some people would prefer to keep their food choices balanced.

Grabbing that beverage from the drive-thru might be convenient, but some people may prefer to avoid the unwanted extras.
