In the heart of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula lies a treasure trove of flavors that tell tales of culture, history, and tradition. Among the myriad culinary delights that grace Yucatecan tables, Agua de Piña con Chaya stands out as a refreshing and healthful elixir that encapsulates the region’s commitment to wholesome ingredients and indigenous knowledge. Let’s embark on a journey to explore the wonders of this famous Yucatecan drink and uncover its unique recipe.

Combining the vibrant sweetness of pineapple with the earthy goodness of chaya, Agua de Piña con Chaya is more than a beverage; it’s a testament to the synergy between nature and health.


  • 1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup chaya leaves, washed and chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wedges for garnish


  1. Begin by washing the chaya leaves thoroughly to remove any dirt or debris. Be sure to handle them with care, as they have a slightly sticky sap that can be mildly irritating.
  2. In a blender, combine the pineapple chunks, chaya leaves, and two cups of water.
  3. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth and well combined. You’ll notice the vibrant green hue of the chaya merging with the sunny gold of the pineapple.
  4. Place a fine mesh strainer over a pitcher and pour the blended mixture through it. Use a spoon to gently press and extract as much liquid as possible.
  5. Add the remaining two cups of water to the pitcher, along with the granulated sugar. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved.
  6. Refrigerate the Agua de Piña con Chaya for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld and the drink to chill.
  7. When ready to serve, fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the refreshing elixir over them.
  8. Garnish each glass with a lime wedge for an extra burst of citrusy freshness.

The next time you seek a drink that not only refreshes but also nourishes your body and soul, consider indulging in the vibrant hues and delightful flavors of Agua de Piña con Chaya. In every glass, you’ll find a tribute to the rich culture and vibrant cuisine that define the Yucatan Peninsula.
