Remove the top from the pineapple and the peel. It's perfectly OK to leave some green on the pineapple for juicing.
Extract the seeds from the pomegranate with the method described in my video you can find in this post.
Ginger and pineapple – I think this is the perfect match. At least for me. Pineapple is incredibly sweet while being on the lower end of the glycemic index. Ginger adds some zing to the juice. I could add pineapple to all my juices, but then I’d consuming too much fructose– so I restrict myself to once or twice per week.
Pineapple has very high levels of vitamin C and it will protect your body from free radicals that attack cells. Adding Pomegranate will provide you with plenty of antioxidants and more vitamin C (although you won’t need it after this pineapple infusion).
Most people are drinking juice because of the health benefits. This juice is no exception but it also tastes gorgeous. It is sweet but also has a nice sour note. Let’s have a look at some of the ingredient’s amazing health benefits:
Apart from the nice, yellow tropical color pineapple has soft and sweat taste. It is rich in vitamin C, manganese, copper and has potential anti-inflammatory effects on the body. Make sure to juice the whole pineapple with the stem because it contains Bromelain which as shown to reduce growth of certain types of tumors. Manganese and vitamin B1 are important for energy production and protect us against free radicals.
I personally like the dark red color of the pomegranate. What we want is what’s inside: the seeds. Yes, you can actually juice the seeds of the pomegranate. I would recommend doing this with a masticating juicer because they don’t give much juice with a centrifugal machine. Equal to the apple, pomegranate has a long storage life. You can keep it in the fridge for at least 3 months and they keep getting juicier. Recent studies show that pomegranate juice may help fight prostate cancer.
Just as the pineapple, pomegranate is full of polyphenol antioxidants which helps your body resist free radicals.
Ginger and celery give this juice a well rounded flavor. Celery is rich in vitamin K which is important for bone health and provides anti-inflammatory benefits.
