Ingredients
  • juicer version:
  • 1 apple, quartered
  • 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • ½ lime, peeled
  • 1-inch piece of ginger
  • 8 ounces coconut water
  • 4 to 5 fresh mint leaves
  • Note: you can juice the mint leaves for more intense flavor but increase the amount to ½ cup. It will change the color of the juice to a pale green however.
  • Blender version:
  • 12-16 ounces coconut water (use the larger amount for a thinner juice)
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
  • ½ lime, peeled
  • 1-inch piece of ginger
Instructions
  1. For the juicer version:
  2. Juice the apple, pineapple, lime and ginger according to your juicers directions. Stir in the coconut water. To serve add the mint leaves to the bottom of a glass and lightly crush with the back of a spoon to release the essential oils. Fill the glass with ice and top with the pineapple coconut water. Garnish with a thin slice of lime.
  3. For the blender version:
  4. Pour the coconut water into the jar of a high-speed blender and add the apple, pineapple, mint and lime. Using a microplane, finely zest the ginger into the blender. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth. For a finer juice you can strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or nut milk bag. To serve add a few additional mint leaves and a thin slice of lime.
