Easy spinach juice with pineapple and ginger

This Pineapple Spinach Smoothie makes it easy to get my serving of leafy greens in. It is a refreshing, delicious smoothie that is sweet and spicy, all at once.

If you are wondering why or how is this smoothie spicy? Well, wonder no more.

This smoothie is made with a large chunk of ginger, along with the other 4 ingredients.

The 5 ingredients needed to make this gut-friendly green smoothie laid out on a cutting board.

What are the ingredients in this Easy Pineapple Spinach Smoothie?

The five ingredients in this smoothie are:

  1. Pineapple,
  2. Baby spinach,
  3. Almond Milk (or any non-dairy milk),
  4. Ginger, and
  5. Maple Syrup.

Can you put raw spinach in a smoothie?

I used raw fresh spinach to make this healthy smoothie, but you can use frozen spinach as well. Only, instead of using 1 cup, use 3/4 cup of frozen spinach instead of 1 cup of well-packed baby spinach.

What about the other ingredients…

The same goes for pineapple. I have made this smoothie with frozen pineapple as well as fresh pineapple. With fresh pineapple, sometimes, you will have to add in more maple syrup if the pineapple is not very ripe and sweet.

As I am lactose intolerant, I like to use almond milk or coconut milk in my smoothies. You could also use oat milk or pistachio milk if you prefer.

As for additions, sometimes I add collagen peptides (not an affiliate link) to this smoothie. Other times, I add in a scoop of vanilla protein powder.

If you want this smoothie more on the thick side, use frozen pineapple or add in a few ice cubes.

If you happen to want to amp up the fruit content of this smoothie, in addition to the pineapple, you can also add in some frozen mango chunks and frozen banana slices. Just a 1/4 cup of each should be enough. You might have to add in a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk, so everything mixes smoothly.

I love this tasty green smoothie because it is:

✔️ So delicious,
✔️ Dairy-free (perfect if you are lactose intolerant),
✔️ Sweet,
✔️ Spicy,
✔️ Filled with vitamins and nutrients,
✔️ Vegan, and
✔️ Did I mention so delicious?!

Why add ginger to this smoothie?

In addition to adding a spicy zing to this green smoothie, ginger is a powerhouse of nutritional benefits. It is said to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is said to help aid in digestion and control gas and bloating. Furthermore, it is even touted as having certain anti-aging benefits. If you want to find out more about the health benefits of ginger, check out this article. To take advantage of all these benefits, I had to add a nice chunk of ginger to this Easy Pineapple Spinach Smoothie.

Hands down, this is my favorite smoothie. I have no scientific proof, but, this delicious smoothie is what I drink when I feel a case of the sniffles might be coming around.

How many servings does this recipe make?

This is a small batch recipe. This Pineapple Spinach Smoothie recipe results in one serving for 2 people or 2 servings for one person. You can easily double it or triple it to make more for more people.

Can this smoothie be made the night before?

One thing I will not advise is to make this smoothie and keep it overnight. This smoothie tastes best when it is consumed as soon as it is made.

I am hoping you give this easy, 5-ingredient, Pineapple Spinach Smoothie a try. And, if you do, please do stop by and let me know in the comments what you think about it.

What a fun idea to put a chunk of ginger into a smoothie - that's a twist I've never tried! We've been eating (drinking) smoothies for weekend lunches lately - they're a great way to use up extra bags of frozen fruit. We kinda need to get rid of those soon! :-)
