This green smoothie is packed with digestion-enhancing and immune-boosting foods like pineapple, parsley, ginger, and avocado.

Don't worry though; its sweet flavour makes it friendly for green smoothie newbies! If you are adverse to the spiciness of ginger, I recommend starting with half the amount and adding to taste from there. This smoothie also keeps well overnight. I will often make a double batch, save leftovers in a small mason jar in the fridge overnight, and enjoy it the next morning.


  • 1 heaping cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 large frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons avocado
  • 1 teaspoon packed fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon probiotic powder, optional
  • lemon or lime slice, for garnish


  1. Add all ingredients into a blender
  2. and blend on the highest speed until super smooth.
  3. Tips:

  4. Feel free to add a handful of baby spinach to boost the nutrient power even more.
  5. Fresh mint also gives this smoothie a nice digestion boost (not to mention a delicious minty flavour).
