Highlights & Tips

To whip up a quick glass of fresh Pineapple Twist 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.  

You will need a vendor to puree the mango and banana.

Purchase your own juicer for home to quickly whip up a fresh glass of juice.  There are so many juicers on the market but you can start with a simple one that is inexpensive to see if juicing is for you

Presentation

The easiest way to prepare your drink is to juice your vegetables first, then add all the other ingredients and blend to a nice puree drink.

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 any super food powders online is it typically save you money.

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!

What to do with left over's or extra product?

If you have left over pineapple you can chop it up and toss it in a fruit salad.  You can also grill up some fresh pineapple rings which is very delicious and make fruit kabobs!
