I recently had this juice combination at a juice bar and I fell in love with it immediately. It was so refreshing and delicious. It contains fresh pineapple, apples, cucumber, limes, and cilantro and just a hint of ginger. It is the perfect balance of flavors in a juice.
I have an Omega VRT350 Juicer , and I love it. But I think that this combination could easily work in a Vitamix or similar blender.
Pineapple is actually super good for you. This article contains a lot of good information on pineapple and it’s cancer fighting, inflammation fighting, and digestive helping properties.
So, I know that there is a lot of discussion about sugar and naturally occurring sugars in juice. I do think that pasteurized juice bought at the store is in a whole different category than fresh raw juices. Raw pineapple juice is used in some cancer fighting regiments. Raw carrot juice is used by some of the most respected natural cancer clinics. Just remember that raw juice and blended drinks made with a blender are in different categories. Both are good. They just do different things.
Anyways, this drink is best drunk by itself. Don’t serve it with a sweet muffin, as it will take away the gentle flavor of it. And use a sweet pineapple. It will be good.
Dreaming of Summer Fresh Juice (Makes about 2 1/2 cups of juice)
- 1 quarter of a fresh pineapple, peeled but core left on.
2 small apple, or one large (tart apples are good)
1 cucumber (peel if the peel is bitter)
15 to 20 stems of cilantro
Tiny piece of ginger
juice of one or two limes
Juice everything but the limes. Squeeze lime into the drink. Enjoy.
