Recipe: Sweet n Spicy Pineapple Ginger Smoothie for 220 Calories


Andrew says …

Reserve 2 tablespoons of pineapple, diced, for a garnish. Ideally, start with frozen banana and frozen pineapple chunks. You can use fresh banana or pineapple, but the texture won’t be quite as creamy as if frozen.


Serves 1 large; 220 cals


  • 1+ cup Water*
  • 1 small, very ripe Banana, very spotty but not black, frozen
  • 1 cup / 165 g Pineapple chunks
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1-2 dashes Cayenne Pepper (careful!)
  • 1 tablespoon Flaxseed, ground
  • 1 teaspoon Maca powder (optional)

* Start with 1 cup and adjust to your preferred thickness.

Blend until smooth and enjoy.


Note: try adding a little sweet spice like cinnamon and see what you think. You can add it or substitute it for cayenne if that is too strong for you.
