The idea for this juice was successfully
stolen borrowed from the infamous BluePrintCleanse. I don’t really know what proportions of the ingredients the BluePrint is using, but I found the one that works for us. I also do not know what kind of apples are being used in “the original” version, but after several tryouts, I found that the tartness of granny smith apples balances out the sweetness of pineapple in the best possible way.
We all love this juice. And so do our friends. We drink it freshly squeezed. We drink it on ice. We drink it chilled. We even make some delicious fancy martini drinks out of it. (Yes! with alcohol!)
It is truly magical and truly versatile. And there is never enough of it, just trust me on that one!
- 1 whole pineapple
- 6 – 8 granny smith apples (depending on size)
- 1 bunch of mint
Cut the crown and the stem off of your pineapple. Slice the skin off its sides. Cut the pineapple up in pieces small enough to fit through your juicer’s feeder.
Wash your apples and cut them into pieces, again, small enough to fit though the feeder. I do not remove the core, nor the seeds. My Omega juicer takes care of that part.
Rinse mint and squeeze out excess of water.
Now run your fruits and mint through juicer. I do it in the following order: mint, pineapple, apples. But I’m pretty sure the order doesn’t matter here.
Strain your juice though a fine mesh strainer and keep it covered in the refrigerator.
Do not forget to give it a stir before you pour it in a glass, as the juice will separate.
