Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

Many of you longtime followers know that I’m not a big believe in “recipes” when it comes to smoothies.  My method of choice is always “a little of this, a little of that”, usually based on whatever fresh produce happens to be hanging around my house.

But a smoothie I made this week happened to be exceptionally tasty.  So I decided to snap a quick pic and share it with you all.

It’s basically a simple pineapple smoothie, featuring some healthy Greek yogurt, banana, and my favorite smoothie ingredient — fresh ginger!  All in all a delicious, light, and wonderfully fresh tasting citrus smoothie.  Feel free to substitute in your favorite citrus fruits, but I happen to be partial to my beloved piña.  So pineapple it is for me!  Enjoy!!

    Can I use ginger powder instead of fresh ginger? Would I use the same amount?

      Hi Steve,

      Sure, you can sub in ginger powder. But you’ll want to use WAY less. Usually I estimate 1/4 teaspoon for every 1 Tablespoon of fresh ginger. Enjoy!

    I have been looking for a good smoothie recipe with fresh pineapple and fresh ginger as they are great inflammation fighters for back pain and arthritis, this one looks good. I would like to add turmeric about 1 tablespoon, how would this affect the taste if so how would you alter the recipe to balance it?

      Sorry should have been 1 teaspoon turmeric not tablespoon.
