Equipment : blender


  • 1 1/2 cups ice
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 medium naval oranges, peel removed and flesh cut into 1/4s
  • 1 large mango, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 inch piece ginger, peeled and diced
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled
  • 1/2 cup water to thin the smoothie, if desired


  • Add the pineapple chunks, oranges, mango, ginger, banana, and ice to your blender.

  • Blend on low speed (or on the crush ice setting) until the ice begins to break apart. If you find the blender isn't breaking the ice down, pour a 1/4 cup of cold water into the blender to facilitate movement.

    Blend on low for 1-2 minutes.

  • Stop the blender and scrape down the carafe before blending on medium speed for another minute, or until the mixture is smooth.

    Thin the smoothie with the remaining water if it's too thick for your liking.

  • Pour the smoothies into large glasses and drink right away*.


*When exposed to light, vitamins lose their potency, so leftovers should be consumed promptly. If you plan to make this ahead, don't allow the smoothie to sit longer than 12 hours after blending.
