The Green Pineapple
There are a few ingredients that are always my “green” basics.
Kale, cucumber and spinach usually make up 95% of most green juices. The fancy folks may also include celery, swiss chard, parsley and cilantro.
I usually juice what’s in my refrigerator after my latest fruit and veggie haul.
Which is how I came up with this recipe.
I ran out of spinach and parsley (I’m fancy), didn’t want the strong taste of celery, so I decided to juice what was left — green beans.
Ok — before you run off to the bathroom at the thought of juicing green beans, I totally get it. When Kris Carr suggested juicing broccoli stem (in her Morning Glorious Recipe), I almost fell out of my chair.
I was still wrapping my head around juicing broccoli (which turns out to be very mild and light tasting — you barely notice it’s there).
Because I was unsure, I decided to go heavy on my fruit, which means a heavier concentration of sugar. If you’re watching your sugar intake, you may want to dilute your juice with fresh water before drinking.
Now I leave the fruit in because I love the taste.
I hope you will too!
The recipe is in the video and below.
PS…those sexy hands are my hubby’s (until the end) — the whole family is hooked on my green drinks!
- 1/2 pineapple
- 1 orange
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 cucumber
- handful of kale
- handful of green beans
- Wash, prep and peel your ingredients - especially the cucumber if it isn't organic.
- Juice your ingredients.
- Drink with a smile.
- I love ginger in this drink but it's completely optional. I used a "sliver" or less than 1/4 of an inch
