Pineapple Green Lemonade Recipe

January 31, 2013

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my juicer. Trust me: I was TERRIFIED of it when I received it, and really kind of laughed it off like… “Great. Another appliance in my cupboards…” but after watching ‘Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.’ on Netflix, I totally changed my mind about juicing – and gave it a shot.

Pineapple Green Lemonade

To my surprise, I actually liked the juice… and so did the kids! So we chose to incorporate a bit more of it into our lives so we can get more nutrients into our system!

This is my absolute favorite recipe for my Juicer. I love the mellow taste of the cucumber, mixed with the pineapple and lemonade for the perfectly not-overly-sour/sweet recipe!

Pineapple Green Lemonade:
1/3 of a Pineapple
1/2 head of Romaine Lettuce (or kale or Both!)
5 stalks Celery
1 Cucumber (or 1/2 English Cucumber)
1 1/2 Small Lemons

Cuisinart Juicer

One of my main goals is to get a large glass of juice for Breakfast and a small amount for Lunch.

    oo this sounds good

  2. Jennifer Hedden says:

    I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix too and it definitely made me want to change my lifestyle and start juicing. I am looking at juicers right now and this will definitely be one of the first recipes I make. Thank you for sharing and happy juicing!

  3. Tami Vollenweider says:

    I have to say,it doesn’t look to do good,but with the ingredients,it sounds great!

  4. This sounds really good! I’d love to buy a juicer and start making my own drinks. So much more healthy!

  5. The color of this combination actually makes me WANT to drink it, it’s weird. It looks very healthy, like one of those spa-inspired drinks! Anyway, good luck in keeping up with that drinking goal! I’ll have to try this juice because the ingredients don’t seem to turn me off, which is a good sign!

  6. Wow! THis sounds really good (I love things that are healthy and taste good!). Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Stephanie says:

    This sounds so yummy! I’m saving this to try if I ever get a juicer of my own!

  8. Gina Brickell says:

    I hear so many people say that these types of juices are really really good.. I’d love to try them for myself because they really don’t sound like they’d mix good together, but they must because so many people like them!

  9. Carolyn A Colley (Griffith, Smith) says:

    looks & sounds very good, I would love to have a juicer

  10. I need to lose some weight too and am trying. I love fruits and vegetables
    but am limited on the green vegetable because of one of my medications.
    Juicer are great but alittle costly for me right now. This would be good if I
    could get my grandson to drink these too.

  11. Liz Ticona says:

    I never thought of mixing cucumber and pineapple, I bet it tastes so good. I don’t have a juicer but i’d love to get one because I looove juice but not the processed full of sugar kind that they sell at stores. this would also help me lose the baby weight! thanks for sharing this juice recipe..Ill be sure to try it as soon as I get one 🙂

  12. I would think this would taste very good. Don’t have a juicer (trying to win one).

  13. Sherri Lewis says:

    I have considered getting a juicer, but I guess I am scared that the juice will taste nasty (be able to taste the veggies), and so it will just collect dust.

  14. Robin Wilson says:

    I admit I am kind of wary of trying a juicer myself even though I too, have read and heard and seen the benefits! I do love pineapple and everything else you put into this recipe though. Perhaps when I can find one at a reasonable price I will get one!

  15. Sarah C says:

    At first glance, the green color is a turn off… but the ingredients sound wonderful.

  16. Can a blender be used also? I am new at this and want to try recipes with blenders vs spending money on a juicer I may never use.

    • Yep – A blender can be used – I believe there are a bunch of places to search for info on using blenders for ‘juicing’. I also have a nutribullet, which is similar to a blender where I make a version of this drink. You use much less vegetables and fruits for a blender because you’re not just getting juice – you’re getting the rest of the fruit as well. Hope that helps!

  17. This sounds really good and refreshing for summer

  18. This looks so delicious!! I’m making this when my pineapples are ready to harvest!!!

  19. What an interesting combination of healthy ingredients. Pinned this and will be trying it out later this week. Thanks for sharing

  20. Christa Nolan says:

    Green juice looks scary…but it is surprisingly good! This looks really yummy!

  21. Rebecca Parsons says:

    This is a unique recipe. I would think kids might shy away a little if you had green. I might do this and put blueberry’s in it to change color a bit. It does sound great though.

  22. shelly peterson says:

    This sounds good but the color is a little scary lol

  23. katie m says:

    This recipe sounds so good that I need to add a juicer to my wishlist.

  24. James Robert says:

    Wonder if my kids would like this one too. I know my oldest girls is all into smoothies and like to be healthy. Might have to let them try this one.
