Bilt for taste


Serving: Serves 2 large glasses

Juicing ingredients

  • 2 Grapefruits
  • 1 Pineapple
  • 2 small apples

Overview

This juicer recipe mimics a famous soft drink with a completely tropical taste (but leaves out the vast amount of added sugar and additives). Pineapple and grapefruit really do make a most excellent combination that gets both your sweet and sour taste buds working overtime. This juice is ideal if you think your system will need a vitamin C boost as both Pineapple and Grapefruit are great sources of this antioxidant that is so effective at strengthening your immune system.

Look for heavy pineapples as this indicates a high water (and therefore juice) content. The pineapple should yield slightly when squeezed.

Directions

To prepare the pineapple firstly remove the top and base of the pineapple, this will give you a study flat base to sit the pineapple on your chopping board so that you can then remove the pineapple skin by slicing down the side of the pineapple. The more slices you make when removing the skin should mean the less you pineapple flesh you waste as you will cut off less 'corners'.

Peel the grapefruits (leaving some of the pith on as this contains bioflavonoid that help your body to absorb the vitamin C. Cut the pineapple, grapefruit and apple into pieces that will fit comfortably down your juicers feeding chute.

Serve with ice.
