Ready to learn how to make cucumber pineapple juice? I can’t wait to show you!
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.
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!
Pineapple and cucumber juice is a nutritious beverage that makes for a healthy snack or breakfast food. You’ll get vitamin C, manganese, and potassium from pineapple, in addition to many other vitamins and minerals.
Cucumber provides vitamin K, vitamin C, and magnesium. My recipe includes greens, flax seeds, and chia seeds, which offer an extra boost of vitamins, minerals, fiber, healthy fats, and a little protein. Plus, drinking a glass of this juice will contribute to your daily water intake!
You can drink pineapple and cucumber juice whenever you would like! It makes for a delicious afternoon snack, or you can have it with breakfast.
Since it is a lower-calorie recipe, I recommend pairing it with something else for breakfast, like Egg and Veggie Hummus Toast or Breakfast Fruit Tacos. You can also make this juice when you’re craving something sweet and refreshing on a summer day!
For the best flavor, I recommend drinking your cucumber pineapple juice right away. If you make it in advance, you should store it in the fridge and enjoy within 3-4 days.
Don’t let the juice pulp go to waste! You can freeze it to use in other recipes like smoothies, oatmeal, or pancakes.
