A cleansing fruit and veggie duo — pineapple and cucumber — combine in a light, ultra-refreshing cross between a smoothie and a juice. This goes down easy, so I’ve devised this recipe to yield about a quart. Share it, or sip it down slowly when you need a day to have more liquid and less food.
Makes: 1 quart plus
- 1 medium pineapple, peel removed, cored, and cut into chunks
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled or not, as desired (leave peel only if unwaxed)
- 8 ounces coconut water (or just use water)
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- Agave nectar, as needed
Combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until completely smooth. Add a little agave nectar for extra sweetness as desired. Serve at room temperature or over ice.
