MARIE'S ENERGIZING PINEAPPLE GREEN ELIXIR
1- 2 cups pineapple cubed
2-3 stalks celery, chopped roughly into smaller pieces
1 large handful spinach
1 handful pea sprouts
1 green apple, quartered
1 kiwi, peeled (optional)
1 cup water (to facilitate blending)
In a Vita Mix or high powered blender, combine all of the above beginning with the cucumber and pineapple. Use water as needed to allow easier blending. Blend until all ingredients are well incorporated and mixture is smooth. Pour mixture through a nit milk bag, squeezing gently until all liquid is extracted. Pour juice over ice and drink immediately.
*This is one of the most delicious and refreshing drinks I have ever concocted; perfect for summer days when you start to feel a little 'wilted' as well as for your morning burst of energy! For those of you whose taste buds might feel intimidated by 'straight green', the pineapple and green apple are a perfect foil for the heavy dose of spinach and pea shoots have a marvelous sweetness to them. The pulp can be saved . It will make an excellent fertilizer in your garden!
