The sweetness of the pineapple and apple helps to mask any bitterness from the kale and cucumber.

For an alternate recipe, use 1 large whole spinach bunch (about 6 cups), 2 yellow delicious apples, 1-2 lemons (unpeeled), 2 oranges, 1 chunk of ginger and 6 to 8 stems of fresh mint stems. This recipe makes about 5 to 6 cups and is very high in vitamin C.
