Fresh Cucumber Pineapple Juice Recipe

Fresh Pineapple Cucumber JuiceLonger days and warm, sunny weather move up my happiness meter. It feels so good to have more energy and get things done. Small things like taking a walk, taking a nap, and finally dusting off my juicer. I’ve been in my apartment for nearly a year and have managed to ignore the juicer I spent years wanting and countless hours researching. What gives? I’m a big fan of fresh juice, but not too keen on the cleanup. Also, I live near a fresh pressed juice shop that makes amazingly delicious juices. But, it’s less expensive and more customizable to make your own juice. Best of all, juicing is a way to clear out the produce drawer. That’s a huge benefit since I hate wasting food.

This ultra refreshing juice is a simple mix of fresh pineapple, cucumber and lime. It’s a bit pulpy, a bit sour and oh-so-sweet from the pineapple. Next time I may add a few sprigs of mint or a knob of ginger for even more flavor.

Fresh Cucumber Pineapple Juice Recipe
Ingredients:
2 large cucumbers, peeled and seeded, ends removed
1 medium fresh pineapple, peeled and cored
1 medium lime
Ice cubes
Equipment:
Juicer

Cut cucumbers and pineapple into pieces to fit the feed chute of your juicer. Juice cucumbers and pineapple into a glass container. Cut lime in half and squeeze juice from lime into cucumber-pineapple juice. Serve over ice.

Makes about 3 1/2 to 4 cups, depending on juiciness of fruit and efficiency of juicer

Tip: My juicer doesn’t extract juice from citrus very well, so I prefer to squeeze the lime by hand. If your juicer does a good job on citrus, peel the lime and run it through your juicer.
