A New Zealand-inspired juice recipe.

South Pacific Sunrise

Any recipe that includes kiwifruit always makes me think of New Zealand. I’ve been there twice, once in 1992 and again in 1994. Both trips were special times in my life. The second trip, though, was where I fell in love with my husband (aaah!). If I could only use one word to describe the New Zealand landscape, I would say breathtaking. If you ever get the opportunity to travel there, you should. In the meantime, though, enjoy this delicious juice!

South Pacific Sunrise

2 Fuji or Gala apples, unpeeled, cored, cut into slices
2 large carrots, unpeeled
2 kiwifruit, unpeeled, halved
2 cups spinach leaves, packed

Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 8 ounces or 1 cup)

Recipe Notes

  • Spinach and other greens are easier to juice when wrapped around other fruits or vegetables. Otherwise, they can clog up the juicer.
