This Pineapple Spinach Juice with Ginger is delicious, refreshing and best of all, full of nutrients and vitamins!
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.
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.
I’m not a nutritionist, but I think that eating your veggies and fruit, with all the fiber in them is the most beneficial way of consuming fruit and vegetables, but I think juicing could be a fun way to try a combination of fresh fruit and veggies that you wouldn’t otherwise eat together. Plus, it seems like 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 it and admit that she liked it! I’m thinking of trying different combinations of vegetable and fruit and making popsicles out of the resulting juice this summer!
If you don’t own a juicer but would like to try out this Pineapple Spinach Juice with Ginger, you can most likely make something similar tasting in a blender, though the texture would be thicker. Enjoy!
