Pineapple Apple Green Juice with Ginger & Kale (Mountain Doo)


This “gateway” green juice recipe is perfect for those of you looking for an easy break into drinking green juice (and enjoying it). We like to use this recipe when we give demonstrations on our juice presses. It uses a nice range of fruit and vegetables, showing the capabilities of the machines, plus it tastes great. Some even think it tastes like a healthy version of Mountain Dew soda!


Preparing Produce for Juice

A lot of people automatically think they need to remove the skin from pineapple. When you juice on our presses, you don’t have to! And that’s a good thing, because pineapple skin actually contains a high concentration of valuable nutrients that have great health benefits. Pineapple contains a powerful enzyme called bromelain, and there is a higher concentration of it in the skin than in the actual flesh.

The Goodnature Difference call to action

The lemon in this recipe can be used with or without the peel, it’s more of a preference thing.  If you’re going for a stronger full-flavor experience, leave it on.

Absolutely! It will just give the juice a bit of a different flavor.

I love this recipe. If I'd like to break the recipes down to 8oz instead of 12oz, how could I go about doing that please? Thank you

Hi Carolyn, Since 8oz is 67% of 12oz, you would just multiply the ingredient weights by 67%, hope this helps!
