Pineapple Punch – Juice Recipe
This juice really packs a flavour punch with a little bit of everything from sweet to tangy and the pineapple flavour dancing off the tongue. A perfect way to start any morning.
Pineapples go well with both sweet and savoury flavours and I think carrot and oranges is a perfect combination to go with pineapple juice. Go for pineapples that feel heavy, with firm skin and a sweet smell. Avoid any with wilted leaves or soft spots.

Strengthens the immune system. Look at the amour of protection around the flesh. The fruit can take up to 2 years from flower to fruit. It has to outlast all four seasons... twice!!!
This resilient, strong nature of a single pineapple gets passed onto us when we consume them.
Pineapple has large amounts of vitamin C like its orange cousin, but it also has bromelain, an enzyme that helps suppress coughs and loosens the mucus that often accompanies colds.
The power of bromelain and vitamin C work together as a bacteria fighter, mucus cutter, cough suppressant, and overall immune system booster in the body.
Carrots are well known in juicing circles as the ‘anti-cancer kings’ of the vegetable world. They contain antioxidants including alpha-carotene, lutein, beta-carotene and lycopene to name a few. Beta-carotene is the main nutrients when it comes to its cancer preventing properties. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. It is believed that beta-carotene can break down the protective mucous membrane around cancer cells.
Carrot juice is also an effective natural remedy for an ulcer in the stomach. When carrots are juiced, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms in the intestines.
When you think of limes think of cleansing your Lymphatic system.
They may only be small but do not let the size make you think they don’t pack a punch. They are ultra-hydrating and electrolyte-producing because of the mineral salts.
Limes also contain some of the most highly absorbable vitamin C around.
Fresh-squeezed lime offers bioactive calcium that your body craves, antioxidant flavonoids for fighting disease, and they help purge many toxic substances like plastics and synthetic chemicals.
Tip: fresh lime juice squeezed onto a small cut or abrasion is a powerful disinfecting, antibacterial aid.
Oranges help quench your thirst and moisten your lungs, letting the energy flow freely in the chest. They also have a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds like anthocyanins, citrus flavanones, and various polyphenols.
Oranges are full of lung-friendly antioxidants and packed with vitamin C which is well known for fighting infection and inflammation.
The whole food type of vitamin C, found in oranges, stimulates your body’s immune system into action so you can say goodbye to your cold and may even reduce the length of time you feel sick or even how seriously it develops.
Oranges destroy free radicals that cause signs of skin aging, scouring the intestine and flushing toxins from the body. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a predigested food. This allows for immediate absorption of all its abundant healing properties.
