Key Ingredients

Ingredients for pineapple cucumber juice on a white marble surface.

Pineapple contains vitamin C which can help reduce inflammation and boost the immune system. Pineapple is also on my list of the best gut healing foods due to its benefits for gut health!

Cucumber fruits contain a lot of water which is super hydrating. They are one of my favorite ingredients for incorporating into green juice. English cucumbers and Persian cucumbers are the best cucumbers to use in juice. They have a neutral flavor with slight sweet notes.

Coconut water aids in hydration much like sports drinks but without added sugars and colors. Be sure to read the ingredient label of the bottle you buy to make sure it has no added sugar.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Recipe FAQs

Do I need to peel the cucumber?

You don’t! Especially if you are using English cucumbers, the skin is very thin and should be processed by the machine just fine.

But, if you want to reduce any bitterness to the juice, you can peel the cucumber if you wish.

Can I use canned pineapple for this recipe?

Yes, but fresh pineapple is best for the optimal flavor and nutrition.

Can this juice help with weight loss?

Pineapple has quite a bit of natural sugar in it, so this juice is not necessarily great for weight loss. However, if you cut out sugar-sweetened beverages and drink this juice instead in moderation, then it may help aid weight loss.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lemon, peeled
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
