Pineapple Ginger Smoothie is so refreshing and deliciously sweet, it’s the perfect smoothie recipe to start your day!
Winters make me lazy. The only thing getting me out of bed lately is knowing that my blender is already set up on the kitchen counter the night before, and this smoothie is a few minutes away so I’m all ready to go.
I love making smoothies for breakfast because they’re quick, easy & always delicious. I love when smoothies are creamy and frothy and topped with granola, fruits, nuts or chia, pumpkin or flax seeds.

Pineapple – Frozen or fresh both work fine for this smoothie. I have used frozen chunks. If using fresh, add ice cubes for thickness and desired consistency. I would not recommend canned ones for this recipe.
Turmeric & Ginger – Superfood with anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger does add a bit of heat and can be overpowering sometimes. Adjust the quantity as per your preferences.
Lemon Juice – Enriched with Vitamin C. Adds a bit of a tang to the drink. You can easily substitute with freshly squeezed orange juice.
Mint Leaves – refreshing and rich in nutrients.
Coconut Water -low in calories and aids in hydration.
Toppings – Fruits, Nuts, Granola, or seeds(pumpkin, chia, etc.) of your choice.

SUBSTITUTIONS, SWAPS & VARIATIONS
Fruits Substitute 1 cup of the frozen pineapple for 1 cup frozen mangoes or peaches or banana or strawberries.
Basil Replace mint with fresh basil leaves.
Dairy or non-dairy Use coconut milk or shredded coconut in lieu of coconut water. Plain water will work just fine too. Use greek yogurt or try with almond milk.
Greens Throw in some frozen or fresh kale or spinach.Print
