Fruit and vegetable juices for hot summer days - Pineapple Carrot Cooler

Updated on August 5, 2012

Pineapple and Carrot Cooler

This really couldn’t be any simpler, and it is incredibly refreshing on a hot summer’s day. I offer it instead of orange juice to the children, as the benefits of carrot juice are amazing. You will need a masticating juicer for these juicing recipes...see http://mrsjilmanning.hubpages.com/hub/-Whats-the-difference-between-juices-and-smoothies-and-what-makes-juicing-SO-good

Carrot juice was favoured highly by the late Norman Walker who researched and promoted juicing throughout his very long (108 years old!) life. He found that it promoted the nervous and immune systems as well as being very good for the eyes.

Pineapple juice straight from fruit to juicer to your taste-buds is a world away from juice from a carton. It lends a sweet, cream tang to the carrot juice, as well as containing bromeline, which is a collection of protein-digesting enzymes and other substances. It has natural anti-inflammatory properties and can be used topically as well as internally. It has been found that pineapple juice can reduce the inflammation of colitis, as well as reducing the number of cancerous lesions in the colon. However, it can affect the heart rate so should be used with caution in heart patients.

Were you refreshed?

A great after-school drink for youngsters

I made sure Jesse went upstairs after this to brush his teeth as he wears orthodontic braces and this juice is really good for him but the pineapple is acidic and both carrot and pineapple juice contain fructose, which is fruit sugar, but sugar never the less, which will really attack teeth with braces if its not cleaned away. Of course this is the same for any sugary drinks, although few have all the benefits of this one.

This juice promotes the immune system, aids digestion and helps dissolve excess mucus which is found in conditions like asthma, hay fever and sinusitus.

It is very well-known that carrots are very good for promoting good eyesight especially seeing in the dark.

You will need a masticating juicer for these recipes

Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Low Speed Masticating Juicer (Silver)
Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Low Speed Masticating Juicer (Silver)

This is a really great heavy duty juicer, especially designed with a low-speed action. This is important when you're making vegetable and fruit drinks as any sort of over-heating will damage and possibly wipe out the high vitamin and mineral content of the drink.

 

Why do you chose fresh juice over popular fizzy drinks?

      Another great juice hub. I always thought you had to use masses of fruit or veg to get a decent amount of juice but now I know this is not the case. Further convinced to buy that juicer, Thanks Jil
