Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Many of you longtime followers know that I’m not a big believer 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!!

  1. Thanks for this!!! I’m gonna make it today!

  2. 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!

  3. 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?

  4. This is loaded with sugar. These fruits are high in sugar…so is yogurt How is this healthy

  5. This was fantastic! I needed a good smoothie recipe to help use up the giant bag of ginger I received. I used plain yogurt and it was still amazing! Thank you for this easy smoothie recipe. I will be enjoying it often. I am a huge fan of naturally sweetened smoothies!

  6. I made without banana but I added honey and it was so yummy!  I don’t like the mix of banana and pineapple, but the mix of pineapple with ginger is so delicious! Thankssssss!

  7. Very  yummy!  Really liked the added cinnamon . 

  8. What’s the calorie content?  Don’t want to use all my calories on one smoothie.  

    • Hello Lee! We’re sorry but we are unsure of the nutrition facts/amount of calories in this recipe. We currently are not publishing nutrition facts on the site, as the nutrition calculators available are not 100% accurate, and we never want to publish anything that might be misleading. However, a lot of our readers love the My Fitness Pal nutrition calculator, so feel free to try that for an estimate. We hope that helps!

  9. Love! Thank You Ali, delicious smoothie! I used goat milk kefir instead of the yogurt and raw goats milk instead of water. An absolutely lovely combo…….yummy! Thanks again!

  10. I will definitely be trying this smoothie in the morning! Ginger is great for digestion, and since I’m usually not a breakfast person, I think it would be something great to start my day with. And pineapple?! YUM! Who could say no to that. Thank you so, so much for sharing <3

  11. If you can not have dairy, can you just add kale or spinach in place of the yogurt?

    • Hi Beverly! If you cannot have dairy, we would recommend a non-dairy milk (almond/soy/coconut/cashew — any one of those would be great in this). We hope you enjoy!

  12. This was so good! If you like ginger, you’ll love this :-)

  13. Sooo good! Made it from my little brother (whos bery picky) and ge loved it too! Also added honey granola clusters to the top for a sweet garnish. Will definitely make again

  14. Perfect. Simple. Refreshing!
