Pineapple and Mint Green Juice

Pineapple and Mint Green Juice

First ever attempt to make a green juice and it worked! Hooray!!!

Call it “beginners luck” if you wish, but I will call it my “refined sense of taste and talent to put ingredients together" (only in my dream world)! Jokes apart, I was actually so surprised it worked! I’ve tasted so many yuk green juices in the past… I wanted to create something that not only I could stomach, but that I could actually enjoy it. I stocked up my fridge full of fruit and veg in preparation of the many attempts of creating THE green juice. This is a twist on the classic pineapple and mint juice with added green veg to make it super healthy and refreshing! I bet even the kids would enjoy this one on a hot summers day!

Ingredients:  

  • 30g spinach
  •  1 leaf of Cavolo Nero (black kale)
  •   1 stick of celery
  •   1/4 cucumber
  •   1 handful of mint
  •   130g pineapple
  •   Water and Ice (optional)

Method:

Blend all ingredients until smooth and serve! This method will retain all the fibre, however, if you are not keen on the texture, use a juicer or a strainer to remove the pulp.

Super easy, healthy and refreshing! Enjoy
