This Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie is so refreshing! It’s perfect for springtime or summer.  

While this smoothie tastes like dessert and may even remind you of an Orange Julius, it’s a nourishing powerhouse of a smoothie with all-star ingredients! Pineapple, turmeric, and ginger are all packed with vitamins, and nutrients, and contain compounds with a slew of health benefits.  

See below for some of the nutritional benefits of pineapple, ginger, and turmeric. 

Pineapple benefits: 

  • Pineapple is a good source of vitamin C, which plays a vital role in immune function, skin health, and wound healing. 
  • It contains an enzyme called bromelain, which has anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce pain and swelling. 
  • Pineapple is a good source of dietary fiber, which can help regulate digestion, reduce constipation, and improve overall gut health. 
  • It is also a rich source of antioxidants, which can help protect against oxidative stress. 
  • Pineapple contains compounds called polyphenols, which may have beneficial effects on heart health by reducing inflammation and improving cholesterol levels. 

Turmeric benefits: 

  • Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These properties can help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body. 
  • It has been found to have a positive effect on brain health, potentially improving memory and reducing the risk of age-related cognitive decline. 
  • Turmeric may also help alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety, with some studies showing it to be as effective as prescription medications. 
  • It has been found to have beneficial effects on digestive health. 

Ginger benefits: 

  • Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation and swelling in the body. 
  • It can also help alleviate nausea and vomiting. 
  • Ginger has been found to have a positive effect on digestion, stimulating the production of digestive juices and enzymes that can help reduce bloating, gas, and constipation. 
  • It has antibacterial and antiviral properties that can help boost the immune system. 
  • Ginger has also been linked to lower levels of cholesterol and blood sugar, potentially reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes. 


  • We used frozen pineapple and a fresh banana, but you can switch to fresh pineapple and a frozen banana, or add ice if using all fresh ingredients.  


  1. Blend all ingredients until smooth.  
  2. Serve & enjoy!
