Pineapple, Romaine + Spinach Green Goodness
Well before I had my juicer, one of my favorite refreshing combinations to mix up was pineapple, mango and spinach. My cousins told me it was a must-try and I have been drinking it ever since. I have a feeling this baby will like sipping on it when he/she is old enough, too! Spinach is great in smoothies because it blends into a silky texture and you can't even really tell that it's there. I throw a few handfuls of spinach in my smoothies whenever I make them!
I'm still in the experimenting stages of juicing and am thankful to have friends to swap recipes with! Sophie suggested pineapple with romaine and spinach and I was anxious to give it a try. According to her it's "the finest thing ever juiced", and I might have to agree! This combination is so light, so refreshing and full of nutrients. The pineapple adds just the right amount of sweetness and the high water content of the romaine is a bonus. Spinach gives this juice it's bright green color. If you don't have a juicer, this would also be delicious blended up with ice.
