Pineapple Mint Juice And A Frugal Pineapple Mint Smoothie Recipe

One of the nicest thing about juicing is the freedom to combine ingredients that normally are not used together.

When you start making your own juices you realize that you can experiment as much as your heart desires. At the same time you will be able to take your raw food experience to an entirely different level. 

If you are new to juicing, raw food sites like this one may give you some ideas, but as soon as you put a juicer on your kitchen counter you become a recipe creator in your own right. Experiment as much as you can and have fun with it. And always remember to keep your juicer sparkling clean!

~ Pineapple Mint Juice ~

  • flesh of 2 fresh, ripe pineapples, chopped
  • bunch of fresh mint (6-8 twigs with leaves)

  • Run pineapple and mint through your juicer.
  • Pour juice into glasses. Add ice cubes if you desire and enjoy in good company!

~ Frugal Pineapple Mint Smoothie ~ 

  • take all the leftover pulp that remains after juicing mint and pineapple (remove any hard matter like the mint twigs)
  • 2 ripe bananas, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup nut milk of your choice 
  • 2-3 ice cubes (optional)

  • Put the fruit pulp into a blender. Add nut milk and bananas. Whiz for a few seconds.
  • Add ice cubes and whiz until smooth.
  • Pour into glasses. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and enjoy in good company!
Tip: If you do not have the time to make a smoothie right away, you can freeze the pineapple mint pulp for a later use. 

And one last thing. Always use the ripest fruit you can find and you will never have to add any sweetener to your smoothies or juices.
