Pineapple Grapefruit Juice

This juice was a bit of an evolutionary process. I had a grapefruit I needed to use and was running low on fresh produce so I started adding in things a little randomly. I had added all the ingredients below except the pineapple and was very short of the 1 liter I need for my morning juice fast juice. It was also very grapefruity!

Then,,, I spotted the perfectly ripe pineapple sitting alone in my fruit bowl – woo hoo! Perfect for two reasons: it would easily increase the volume to 1 liter, and it had the perfect sweetness to balance the grapefruit. Voilà! Success.

Ingredients (1 liter)

  • 1 pineapple or thereabouts;  I cut some up and saved it for my boyfriend as it was too juicy and delicious to keep to myself : )
  • 1 large grapefruit
  • 1 large apple
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 2.5oz spinach (a few large handfuls)
  • Small handful of sunflower greens (optional)
  • 1 lime
  • 1 chunk ginger

Instructions

Juice everything – if you have a cold-press juicer try alternating the pineapple between the other ingredients to move them through more efficiently; I find that if I do them all at once, I get a lot of pulp caught in the mesh.
