Sweetening the juice
If you use a very ripe and sweet pineapple, you may not need to add extra sweetener to your juice. However if you decide to sweeten it, you can use some honey simple syrup or sugar free simple syrup.
Honey simple syrup is a mix of equal amount of water and sugar. Bring to a boil and let it cool completely before adding it to your juice. I have a detailed post on how to make honey syrup. You can check it out if you need more guidance.
