This is a juice disguised as a mocktail, to bring health to holiday banquets while preserving taste and cheerfulness. Nutrients in pineapple, clementines and ginger promote digestion and are packed with a high content of vitamin C, anti-inflammatory substances and antioxidants.
Serving: about 3.5 cups of juice
- 33 oz ripe pineapple
- 27 oz clementines or mandarins
- 2 inches ginger root
- ½ tbs coconut flour
- ½ tbs coconut sugar
- some mint leaves
- some pomegranate kernels
- a slice of lemon or lime
Peel and dice the pineapple. Peel the clementine fruits and the ginger root. Juice the fruit and the ginger with a slow juicer or a centrifuge.
Put the coconut flour and the coconut sugar in a small plate and mix them. Wet the rim of a glass where you will put the juice, then press it onto the plate so that the powder adheres.
Fill the glass with the juice, decorate with the lemon slice, mint leaves and pomegranate kernels.
For a more bubbly effect, you can add some sparkling water.
The pineapple core is rich in the beneficial bromelain: juice it, too.
The slow juicer preserves more nutrients in the juice than centrifuge.
