Pineapple Paradise (green juice)

My current fave green juice! A mildly sweet, tropical, refreshing green juice. This one is so good guys. You must try it! My kids and hubby love it.

If you happen to have allergies like me, try juicing some pineapple and eating it too. Pineapple is high in bromelain which may reduce allergy symptoms. When you make this juice, include the core of the pineapple. The core has the highest amount of bromelain in it. Cucumbers are wonderful for your skin! They are rich in silica, which is known to help promote joint health by strengthening the connective tissues in the joints. They are also rich in vitamin C, vitamin D, and calcium, all of which contribute to a healthy joints.

Consider making a double batch of this juice and sharing it with your family!
