Summer Sunshine Juice – Recipe of the Week

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Wake up to a refreshing, light, tropical blast of immune-supporting Vitamin C to get your day started right! This summery juice is also full of electrolytes like potassium. On a hot day it’s important to replenish fluids and electrolytes to stay healthy and prevent dizziness or muscle cramps.

**Fun tips for using the whole pineapple**

  1. Save the top of the pineapple to use as a brush on your skin. The pineapple “brush” is thought to have healing properties – whether it’s from the natural abrasive or exfoliant actions or the anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, like bromelain, found in this fruit, your skin will be radiant and cuts or minor abrasions may heal even faster!
  2. Create a pineapple “paintbrush” for fun art projects using the rough top of the fruit.
