Pineapple is one of my favorite tropical fruits and I often drink freshly pressed pineapple juice. I use very ripe fruit and serve it in chilled glasses.
Pineapple comes with many health benefits. This delicious tropical fruit is rich in vitamin C, manganese and copper. It contains bromelain that is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-coagulant and anti-tumor properties. Pineapple helps improve digestion and strengthen the immune system. It may also protect against macular degeneration.
To increase health value of this delicious juice I love to add other beneficial ingredients. In synergy they help improve digestion, fight inflammation, and strengthen immune system.
- 1 ripe pineapple, peeled and chopped
- 2 inch chunk fresh ginger root
- 2 limes (juice with peel if they are organic, but remember to wash properly)
- Pass all ingredients through a juicer. Serve in chilled glasses and enjoy in good company!
Tip: You can increase the nutritional value of your juice by adding different fruits, vegetables and herbs. There is no limit to your creativity. Also remember that you can always re-use the juice pulp that remains after juicing. Make raw cookies, add to a smoothie or make raw ice cream. Experiment. It really is fun!
