Instead of drinking a processed, sugar-filled green Shamrock Shake from Mickey D’s this St. Patty’s Day, give this green juice a whirl! This “magically delicious” green juice has healthy pineapple, cucumber and spinach that is just sweet enough to quench your sweet tooth!
Pineapple has many healthy benefits. For one, it’s rich in vitamins and they help prevent many illnesses such as sinusitis, arthritis, indigestion and infections of the stomach and intestines. Also, pineapple is anti-inflammatory and helps ease arthritis pain. Not to mention, it’s rich in Vitamin C, which helps prevent colds and contains bromelain, which is helpful in suppressing coughs.
Let’s not forget about the delicious, refreshing cukes and powerful properties of spinach! The cucumber helps aid in weight loss due to its high water content. They are a good source of B vitamins and help keep the body hydrated while eliminating toxins. Raw or unprocessed spinach is loaded with carotenes, amino acids, iron, iodine, potassium and magnesium, Vitamins A, C, K, E and B complex. Did you know you get the same amount of protein in a chunk of spinach as you would a morsel of meat? This proves Popeye was on to something years ago!
- 1 cucumber peeled

Place all ingredients in a juicer and drink up!
