Mint, Kiwi and Pineapple Juice

This is a fairly thick juice (more like a smoothie) but you don't need a juicer as you can blend the ingredients in a blender (or even a food processor). I love the refreshing taste of mint and kiwis and the pineapple adds a wonderful sweetness.This drink is packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and fibre. You can also slightly freeze the drink to make it sorbet-like.

This drink will keep your body in mint condition!

Mint, Kiwi and Pineapple Juice

Serves 4 (makes 1 litre)


  • 300 grams (11 oz) pineapple, very ripe (weight measured after trimming)
  • 250 millilitres (8½ fluid oz) orange juice
  • 4 kiwis, very ripe
  • Handful fresh mint leaves (set a couple of leaves aside for garnish)
  • 4 handfuls ice cubes


  1. To peel the pineapple, place it base side down and carefully slice off the skin, carving out any remaining hard "eyes" with the tip of your knife. Then cut the pineapple into quarters, remove the core (hard part in the middle) and cut the 300 grams pineapple into large chunks.
  2. Place the pineapple in a food processor or blender and blend for 20 seconds or until completely smooth. Set aside.
  3. Peel the 4 kiwis with a small knife and place in a blender along with the handful fresh mint leaves. Blend for 5-7 seconds (not for longer as you don't want the kiwi seeds to break). Set aside.
  4. Now place the 4 handfuls ice cubes in the blender along with the 250 millilitres orange juice. Blend for 15 seconds.
  5. Add the pineapple, kiwi and mint to the blender.
  6. Blend everything together for 5 seconds.
  7. Pour into a container and stir well.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. Chop a couple of mint leaves for garnishing each glass.


  • If you really like fresh mint, you can double the amount used in the recipe.
  • You can use apple juice instead of the orange juice.
  • If you prefer a thinner juice, you can run the pineapple through a juicer instead of a blender.
