This juice recipe builds upon the Peek-a-boo Carrot Juice recipe. Surprisingly, this recipe is a good beginner’s juice. It’s not one of those healthy one’s that you have to toss back. Because of the sweet pineapple, this recipe’s flavor is a real treat. It is a good one to try with picky eaters, they won’t know how healthy it really is.
Turmeric, ginger, and pineapple contain beneficial enzymes to give your pancreas, gallbladder, and stomach the nutrients they need to build a healthy store of digestive enzymes. For those of us that have frequent bloating after meals, this juice may help with calming the after meal tummy trouble.
A special juicing technique note.
If you are using a centrifugal juicer, the Breville Compact Juicer or Jack LaLanne Power Juicer, you should be able to just toss all of the ingredients in the juicing feeder. This is the type of juicer that I used for many years.
I now prefer to use a masticating juicer because I like the flavor of juice made by it. The juicing auger chews the food similar to how you would chew it if you were eating the fruit or vegetables yourself. I use the Omega J8006 Juicer and it does need the vegetables and fruit juiced in a way so that everything passes through. Begin with the ginger and turmeric, next the lemon, then rotate between the zucchini, carrot, and pineapple.
You juice a few soft fruit pieces, then juice carrot to push them through, then more soft fruit, and carrots to push it through. It is not difficult to do, you’ll just need to remember to save a few carrots to finish pushing all of the fruit through at the end. And if you forget, hopefully you’ll have an extra carrot in the fridge to help you out. The flavor that a masticating juicer produces is well worth the extra finesse that it requires to make the juice. Just wait until you try a greens juice on the masticating model, it works beautifully!
Notice the scar on the zucchini? I intentionally choose vegetables with scars like this based upon a simple observation and hunch from reading about the benefits of resveratrol. (1) Research is suggesting that resveratrol may be neuroprotective and could help with treatment or prevention of neurogenerative diseases. Certain plants produce resveratrol in response to an injury, though zucchini hasn’t been studied for this, I just go on a hunch that most vegetables and fruits are going to do the same or a similar thing.
We eat vegetables and fruits to transfer their stored vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and numerous more benefits into our bodies. If a fruit is cut, then forms a scar to repair that cut, it had to develop cells that repair and restore. I simply hope to transfer those special cells into my own health, and it doesn’t hurt anything to try.
I hope you enjoy this juice recipe and would love to hear from you and how you liked it.
