Pineapple Green Juice With Spinach Recipe

Pineapple Green JuiceThis is a light, frothy green juice with a lot of flavor. I only added one cup of chopped spinach to the recipe but if you want to bulk up on minerals, feel free to add more.

Pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme called bromelain, which helps in the digestion of protein. Spinach just so happens to be rich in protein as well as potent antioxidants, vitamin A and vitamin C.

We call this recipe a “whole juice” because it is made in a blender, which makes a juice that includes the fiber (pulp) without being thick like a smoothie.

Pregnant women should not consume parsley. Parsley contains an essential oils called apiole. Apiole is a kidney stimulant. Because this essential oil can stimulate uterine contractions, pregnant women should avoid eating large quantities of it.

Pineapple-Spinach Whole Juice Recipe

  • 1 cup pineapple, cubed
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 8 ounces of filtered water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fresh, grated ginger (optional)

Start by adding the liquid to your blender (I use a Vitamix), followed by the soft fruit. Add the greens to your blender last. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until you don’t have any more chunks.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!
