Highlights & Tips

To whip up a quick glass of fresh Pineapple Sunrise to kick start your day off right!  You will need to first cut up the fresh pineapple.  Use a Pineapple slicer or place the pineapple on its side and cut off the top greens and the bottom of the pineapple.  You can then stand it straight again on it's bottom and slice the scaly skin off carefully.  Then cut slices around the core of the pineapple.  

Use a blend bottle to mix the juice well especially after adding the protein, bitter melon and turmeric powder so there is no lumping.

Health Benefits

There are so many wonderful benefits to this drink.  First fresh pineapple in the morning prevents sugar and fat cravings, therefore is a great choice for overweight people to maintain or lose weight.  Pineapple also boosts immune systems because of the presence of vitamin C, A and selenium.

Turmeric is known for boosting energy levels, boosting mobility, is an anti-inflammatory, is linked to lowering the risk of heart disease & cancer and is high in antioxidants!  

Bitter melon is a ancient fruit that is found in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.  This melon helps regulate blood sugar which keeps your blood sugar stable.  It also enhances your immune system because of all the compounds with antioxidants, antiviral and antimutagenic properties.  Some also use it to manage type 2 diabetes.

Budget Tips

If you want to save a little money make your own juice.  If you buy your produce in bulk and clean and prep things yourself you will save a little money.  I purchase some of my vegetables at a club like Costco or a local farmers market.  I'm blessed to live near a weekly farmers market and know several vendors who give me a deal on fresh veggies if I buy bulk and buy often!    If a farmers market is not available try asking your local grocery manager if they can get a bigger pack size of fresh fruit and vegetables.  You would be surprised what you might find!    

Purchase the protein powder online is it typically save you money as well as the Bitter Melon and Turmeric powder.

Storage Recommendations

Storage is VERY important when holding on to your juice!  First it's important to know if using a centrifugal juicer your fresh juice will only be good for 24 hours if sealed in a tight jar or bottle in the refrigerator.  If using a masticating or cold press juicer you can hold onto your juice for 3-4 days in a refrigerator.

Its best to drink your fresh juice right away but if you can't place it in a tight sealed jar or bottle with little air.  The sooner you drink your fresh juice the more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals you will consume!
