The (optional) ginger adds balance to the sweetness of this juice.
Speaking of balance, whenever I drink fruit juices without any veggies blended in, I usually have a green food on the side. Chlorella tablets, spirulina, or green powders are great options to add a broader range of nutrients to vitamin-rich fruits. If you’re drinking smaller amounts of the juice, you can always pair it with a nice green salad.
Slightly Spicy Pineapple Orange Juice
The amount of juice you get from your fruit will vary depending on the fruit and the juicing method. For the amounts below, I used my citrus juicer for the oranges, and the Vita-mix/nutmilk bag method for the pineapple and ginger.
Makes: about 32 ounces
WHAT YOU NEED
2 to 3-inch piece fresh ginger (or more, to taste)
1/4 medium pineapple, peeled (not cored) (for 8 ounces juice)
6 to 7 large oranges (for 24 ounces juice)
WHAT TO DO
Juice the pineapple and ginger using your preferred method. Pour the juice into a large bowl.
Juice the oranges using your preferred method. (I cast a stern vote for the citrus juicer.) Pour the orange juice into the pineapple-ginger juice and stir to blend.
Live the difference!
