Pineapple Kiwi Mocktail

pineapple kiwi mocktail

When it comes to a mocktail that’s fun + fruity but has the added benefit of improving sleep, this Pineapple Kiwi Mocktail is pretty much perfect!

Pineapple contains melatonin, which helps improve sleep, and kiwifruit has been shown in studies to improve sleep as well, making them a perfectly dynamic duo.

What I love about this Pineapple Kiwi Mocktail recipe is that even though we’re using fruit, which contains fructose, we’re not using straight juice. The fruit itself stays in the recipe, which keeps all the fiber. This is important for sleep to help blunt blood-sugar spikes, which can interfere with sleep.

Plus the tropical feel of this mocktail is super fun!

{This is not to say that this mocktail is a good option if you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic and having a hard time controlling your blood sugar. Know your body and go from there. ie-be smart about your mocktail options!}
