Ingredients

  • 2 cups pineapple chunks from about ½ normal sized pineapple
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  • Place pineapple, ginger, water, and maple syrup (if using) in a blender jar and blend until smooth.
  • Empty into glasses, garnish with a few mint leaves and serve immediately.

Notes

  • This smoothie is very thick with all the fibers of the fruits intact but for a lighter juice, pass the smoothie through a sieve to remove the pulp.
  • To further enhance its healing properties, add a little fresh or ground turmeric to the smoothie.
  • Nutritional Information is for 1 of 2 servings of the pineapple smoothie.
