Though I juice year-round, my favorite season for juicing is definitely in the summer. There are few things more refreshing than a tall glass of fresh Carrot Ginger Pineapple Juice. Y’all, it’s like a vacation in a glass. SO GOOD!
How to Make Carrot Ginger Pineapple Juice
As with most juices, there’s really not much to it in terms of prep. To start, I like to gather up all of my ingredients and prepare them to go into the juicer. For this Carrot Ginger Pineapple Juice, that means cutting away the outer skin of the pineapple, slicing off the ends of each carrot, cutting off a thumb of ginger and cutting off the lemon peel.
Because we’re juicing, I don’t think it’s necessary to throw away the core of the pineapple. After all, there’s likely a good amount of juice in there. If your juicer is anything like mine, you may find it helpful to slice your produce so that it easily fits into the mouth of the juicer. This will save you a lot of time when you actually start juicing and you’ll be able to add one piece after the other for a seamless juice session.
Once all of your fruits and vegetables have been appropriately sliced, you can start the juicing process by adding each piece into the mouth of your juicer until everything has been run through.
How to Juice Without a Juicer
Don’t have a juicer? You can STILL JUICE! You’ll want to start by cutting or peeling the skin off of the lemon. You may also find it helpful to cut your other ingredients (like the carrots, ginger and pineapple) into smaller pieces to make it easier to blend in your high speed blender. Combine all of the ingredients below in a blender along with a bit of water (I would start with about 1/4-1/2 cup) and blend it together until mostly smooth. If your blender gets stuck, feel free to add more water a little at a time until it’s moving again.
Once the ingredients have successfully blended together, grab a fine mesh strainer (like this one) and place it over a large mixing bowl, then pour the blended mixture over it. Strain until you’re left with nothing but pulp in the strainer. Use the back of a large spoon to help push the liquid from the juice mixture into the bowl. Then VOILA! You’ve got juice.
