Pineapple Orange Ginger Smoothie | When Juicing Meets Blending
What a great way to welcome in June with this delicious looking jar of healthiness. I have been experimenting with juicing and blending but blending (smoothies) almost always make the list of “I want one” in our household. You know that phrase when the kids see something that look good to them and say, “I want one.”
My kids are not to fun of juicing because the majority of my juices are made up of veggies with a fruit added to help with the taste. I guess they are not very tasty in their book but they still drink them though. They are not on the “I want one” list. I often alternate between juicing and blending but I love making mixtures with the combination of both ( juicing and blending) sometimes. It seems like we are getting the benefits of both in one. When I am doing a combination of both, I normally juiced a veggie to add but I wanted it to be delicious. So, I decided to add a fruit(orange-because of the color that it is when it is juiced) and that is when this Pineapple Orange Ginger Smoothie was born. The kids love it.
When the ingredient list is small, juicing and blending together is really simple and easy.
Honest moment: They will be able to get some benefits from all of the ingredients but I didn’t add any green veggies because I didn’t want to change the summery (I don’t really know if that is a word lol) color. Isn’t the color beautiful?
Pineapple Orange Ginger Smoothie
- 1 cup of frozen pineapples
- 3/4-1 cup of juiced orange
- 1 inch of juiced ginger root
- 1 tbsp of maca powder
- sprinkles of coconut flakes (optional)
First, I juiced the orange and ginger root. Next, I added the juiced mixture to the blender with the frozen pineapples & maca powder and blend until it is the consistency that I want. Pour in a jar or glass of choice. Add sprinkles of coconut flakes if like and enjoy.
Cheers to the summer!!
