Have you ever had a green juice with pineapple in it? It makes everything green taste like pineapple!
I'll start by saying there will be may green juices you try that you will either love or hate.
And if you are a newbie or really detest the taste of green juices, I highly recommend using pineapple.
Green juice that contains all and only vegetables with no fruit is an acquired taste. And it will take you time to get used to that type of taste. In the meantime welcome pineapple into your green juice rotation. I remember when I first started to experiment with green juices and I stumbled upon pineapple. It was a divine experience!
There are even times when pineapple is too sweet and I need to temper it down. That is where my lighter lettuces come into play like Tropicana lettuce, romaine, and butter lettuce. These three greens create a mild juice that harmonizes with the pineapple making it just right.
