I love making fresh juice for my family, so there’s no preservatives or additives. Making juice at home is not only refreshing, but so very healthy! There are so many vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that you get from eating and drinking fresh, whole foods and juices. You are going to love this sweet and healthy fresh pineapple, apple, and carrot juice, with strawberry!
I’d love to say that I have time to make fresh juice every day. But, I don’t. However, I do have a good strategy to get that whole food goodness in…bridging the gap with my Juice Plus+. If you are curious about Juice Plus+, or just want to learn how you can get Juice Plus+ for free, you can read my review about it here.
I love experimenting with different juice combinations, not only for the taste, but for the different nutrients that each fruit or veggie has to offer. Here’s a quick run-down of the health benefits in a cup of Fresh Pineapple, Apple, & Carrot Juice with Strawberry.

Carrots— health benefits of carrots include: rich in Vitamin A, reduced cholesterol, lower risk of heart attacks, improved vision, reduced signs of premature aging, ability to improve the skin, boost the immune system, optimize digestion, protect cardiovascular health, and detoxify the body.
Health benefits of apples
Apples—rich in important antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. Apples are just good for overall health and they help to sweeten up this juice combo! They are also high in fiber and water, so they are also good for weight loss.

It is especially rich in vitamin C and manganese, which are important for maintaining a healthy immune system, a healthy metabolism, and also contain antioxidant properties.

Did you know that strawberries are not a fruit or berry? They are actually a member of the rose family and are the enlarged receptacle of the flower.
