This vibrant Pineapple Spinach Juice with Ginger is delicious, refreshing and best of all full of nutrients and vitamins!Jump to Recipe Print Recipe
I first tasted green juice when my cousin wanted me to try a kale and pineapple juice she had discovered. I was a bit hesitant at first, the colour wasn’t exactly appealing, but I tasted it anyways and found the drink very enjoyable. Since drinking that glass, I developed a bit of a craving for this green juice, so one day I decided to take my juicer out of the deep dark corner of my cupboard and try my hand at making my own tasty green juice.
About this Pineapple Spinach Juice
I made my juice with spinach instead of kale, added some fresh pineapple and an apple. The juice turned out delicious. Then a few days later, I made it again, doubling the amount of spinach and adding a bit of fresh ginger. Just a small piece of ginger makes a real difference, it added a slight zing to the drink and really complimented the spinach and fruit in this juice.
Drinking Raw Spinach Juice
Though I’m not a nutritionist, I think that eating your veggies and fruit, with all the fiber in them, is the most beneficial way of consuming fruit and vegetables. However, I think that juicing is a fun way to try combinations of fresh fruit and veggies that you wouldn’t otherwise eat together. Plus, it’s a bonus way to get more nutrients and vitamins into your diet, especially if you can convince your picky kids to give it a try. I still can’t believe I got my pickiest child to try this spinach juice and admit that she likes it! I’m thinking of trying different combinations of vegetable and fruit juices and making popsicles out of them this summer!
If you have any leftover spinach juice it can be refrigerated up to two days or frozen for longer storage. If you don’t own a juicer but would like to try out a green drink recipe, this Pineapple Spinach Smoothie is very similar to this juice. Enjoy!
