spinach & pineapple juice

I ♥ this green juice!

A spinach & pineapple juice may sound a little weird, but is utterly delish and I am absolutely addicted! Give it a go and see if you get hooked too. When I feel down I crave pineapple (and chocolate) for some reason, so whilst I’ve been coming to terms with Aars’ recent diagnosis with Coeliacs Disease this juice has been my daily treat. It’s like drinking tropical sunshine, makes me feel a little better about the world and all it’s injustices and it’s great for my bod too!

Pineapple is a weird fruit as its GI (glycemic index) goes down when it is juiced, all other fruits go up, making the pineapple the ultimate fruit to juice. I love the zing that lime and ginger add to this gorgeous green juice too, making it all the more tropical and refreshing.

I hope you love it as much as me! I make it first thing and enjoy a glass or two for brekkie and then bung the rest in an air-tight jar and keep it in the fridge to enjoy at lunch time. I use my Samson juicer and it’s a delight!

pineapple, cucumber, spinach, lime & ginger-root juice

This juice is delicious and a brilliant way to get all the best bits of pineapple into your system! When I am feeling down this juice perks me up and brings a little tropical sunshine into my world. Its great for your digestion and pineapple is a unique fruit as it's GI is better when juiced than eaten whole! I make this in the morning and enjoy a glass (or two) for brekkie, and then put the rest into one of my recycled glass jars with a sealed lid, pop it into the fridge to enjoy the rest at lunch time. YUM! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple skinned
  • 1 cucumber 
  • 2-3 huge handfuls of spinach
  • 4 cm³ ginger root (de-skined)
  • 1 lime (peeled - but leave as much pith on as pos!)

Method:

  1. Juice your spinach, pineapple and cucumber together into a jug. I do a handful of spinach, then a chunk of pineapple, followed by a chunk of cucumber over and over again. Once they're juiced put your ginger and lime through the juicer. I put some of the pulp through again to ensure I get all the ginger and lime flavour.

  2. Pour as much as you want to drink now into a glass. Pop the rest into a glass jar with a lid, and into the fridge for later*

Notes:

*I use a recycled passata jar, with a tight lid to keep my juices in the fridge. The juice will stay good for up to 20 hours.
