This morning eye-opener is an outstanding source of vitamins A and C. If you drink it fresh from the extractor, the orange and lemon rinds add a lovely, subtle flavor. Otherwise, peel the orange and lemon before juicing, as the rinds will make the juice bitter after sitting for an hour or two. Look for ripe pineapple with a mild aroma and golden peel.
