Green Ginger Pineapple Smoothie

Green Ginger Pineapple Smoothie

Super detox smoothie - great for alkalizing your system. Refreshing and delicious + packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and enzymes.



Ingredients / Directions: 

Blend till liquefied and green, approximately:

  • 1 c fresh pineapple (or unsweetened pineapple juice)
  • the juice from 1/4 - 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • a small handful of each (remove most of the large stems): parsley, cilantro, watercress (or arugula, spinach or other leafy green)
  • *1/4 - 1/2 c water (or unsweetened pineapple juice)

*Optional. The extra liquid may be necessary to make it easier to blend. Add water if you want it less sweet, juice if you want it more sweet.

Enjoy as is, or strain to make an awesome green juice - though you will loose most of the fiber. (I once made this drink using pineapple juice, cilantro and escarole - strained it, and added the green fiber to a tomatillo salsa - delicious.)

This recipe can be put through a juicer too: replace the optional water with another ~1/2 c of pineapple.

Enjoy :-)

paying it forward

Hi Patty I have just had to put my 3 year old through a string of tests & take him off sugar, dairy & wheat. I was looking for a cookie recipe that could do just that & thus I found you. I can't thank you enough as well as my little angel it is the only thing he has been able to keep down at this difficult time I will continue to view your site & learn what I can, to bake like you. Thank you again. I have already passed on my praises of you to many people. Emily from Vancouver Island, B.C.

Healthy Smoothies

Just came acroos this smoothie recipe when looking for a pineapple smoothie to make.

I have a website devoted only and entirely to raspberries (, so I usuallly end up making some variety of a raspberry fruit smoothie!

I think I will try your recipe. I love the way that smoothie recipe has BOTH fruit and vegetables (lettuce) in the ingredient list.

Can't think of a healthier smoothie!

I have a friend who is on a gluten-free diet, I shall pass this link on to her.
