Ingredients

The ingredient list for cucumber pineapple juice is super simple. Here’s a list of what it takes to make it:

Cucumber: You only need one cucumber for this recipe! Not only do you get health-helping vitamins and minerals from cucumber, you also get filling fiber.

Pineapple: You’ll need three cups of pineapple to make the juice. If you have leftover pineapple, you can set it aside to use in other recipes (looking at you, pineapple sangria!) or to make more juice.

Greens: I mixed arugula and spinach into the juice to add extra fiber and nutrients. You can add any other greens that you have on hand—kale would work great, as well.

Flax and chia seeds: I blended a Tablespoon of each into the juice. These little seeds provide healthy fats and some extra fiber, which makes the recipe more filling and balanced.

Step-by-step instructions

For this recipe, you’ll need a juicer and a blender. Start by placing the cucumber, pineapple, arugula, and spinach into the juicer. Then transfer the juice into a blender. Next, add the flax and chia seed, and blend until you reach your desired consistency.

Give the juice a taste as you go to make sure it’s smooth enough.

Once the cucumber pineapple juice is blended to perfection, pour it into a cup or glass, and enjoy!
