Tropical Farmer Juice

Summarytropical farmer
If you are feeling like a sweet and refreshing glass of juice, this is the drink for you! With the incredibly delectable flavor of the fresh pineapple juice, this juice is sure to please adults and children alike. While the strawberries may be a little pricey due to the season, the carrots and apples are in full swing at farmers markets and grocery stores, so they should more than make up for it! If you purchase sweeter apples, such as Fuji, they will damper the bitterness of the strawberries while boosting the delightful nuances of the strawberry flavor. This juice also boasts a wagon full of antioxidants and immune boosting vitamins, so it can give you and your family the edge you need going into the cold and flu season. Since many people are unaccustomed to using fresh pineapple, instructions on cutting the pineapple are included in the recipe. Canned pineapple can be used, but the flavor is not as strong, so fresh pineapple is recommended.
