  • 1 cup frozen cherries (154g)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks (165g) 
  • 1 banana, sliced and frozen  
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped (10g)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (240ml)


  1. Add the frozen cherries, pineapple, banana slices, ginger and 1/2 cup of the almond milk to a high-powered blender. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. 
  2. With the blender running on low, gradually add the remaining 1/2 cup almond milk until it reaches your desired consistency. Blend for an additional 30 seconds.
  3. Pour smoothie into 2 tall glasses and top with extra pineapple chunks or cherries if desired. Serve immediately.

Tips for Success

  • Freeze banana slices ahead of time for a thicker, ice cream-like texture.
  • Adjust ginger amount to taste preference. More provides extra anti-inflammatory power.
  • Add a scoop of protein powder or nut butter for extra staying power.
  • Substitute coconut water for almond milk for a lighter, more hydrating smoothie.


  • What kind of blender works best? A high-powered blender like a Vitamix or Ninja provides the best results. A regular blender may struggle to thoroughly blend frozen ingredients.
  • Can I use fresh instead of frozen fruit? Yes, but the smoothie will be thinner in texture. Add extra ice to thicken.
  • What milk alternatives can I use? Any plant-based milk like soy, oat or coconut milk work well. Avoid dairy as the proteins may curdle when blended with the pineapple. 
  • Can I meal prep this smoothie? Yes! Blend up a big batch and pour into individual containers to grab and go in the mornings. Keeps 3-4 days refrigerated.
