Pineapple, Kale and Strawberry Juice

pineapple-kale-and-strawberry-juiceI’m always up for a good nutrition packed smoothie or juice, especially when we are hitting Spring time and the ‘detox  season’ after winter’s dietary  sins.

This one has a great zing and is a little on the earthy side.

Perhaps it should be classed more like a ‘roughy’ instead of a smoothie when it comes to consistency but none the less it packs a great therapeutic punch with it’s high antioxidants, fibre and enzymes as well as circulatory and anti-inflammatory  properties.

Ingredients

3/4 cup Pineapple

1 cup Strawberries

½ cup Kale leaves

1 tsp Ginger grated

¼ cup Water

 

Method

Remove the strawberry tops and chop the pineapple into pieces.

Remove the kale leaves from the stems.

Grate the ginger.

Combine the above ingredients with water and blitz.
