This healthy pineapple smoothie is like a tropical island in a glass! Whether it’s snowing outside or 90 degrees in July, this smoothie is a staple in my house. Not only is it dairy-free and paleo, but this turmeric smoothie for inflammation is also super healthy.

Turmeric, Coconut and Ginger Smoothie
How to survive the gloomy grey PNW winter: liquid sunshine…and a vitamin D3 + K2 supplement. This Turmeric, Coconut and Ginger Smoothie is my favorite seasonal smoothie filled with warming and nutrient dense ingredients – it feels like sunshine in a glass!
Why have a ‘warming’ smoothie in the wintertime?
I’ve always been interested in different health modalities including Traditional Chinese Medicine ( TCM ) and Ayruveda, the system of ancient medicine in India. In these practices, consuming cold beverages – either in the form of ice water or a smoothie filled with super cold, frozen fruit – can quell digestive fires and may even lead to stomach pain, gas and bloating, and other digestive issues.
In Ayruveda, there are certain foods thought to have warming qualities. According to Alexandra Jamieson, the author of Women, Food and Desire, the following foods are the most warming ingredients to add to a smoothie, and therefore cut down on any digestive issues that could be found when enjoying an ice cold smoothie.
Warming Smoothie Ingredients:
Of course, this list is to be taken with a grain of salt – and an open mind!
In this smoothie recipe, we’re using several warming ingredients including ginger, dates, turmeric, and coconut butter and milk. Feel free to add additional warming ingredients from this list to your smoothie, such as something green like collard greens or kale for an additional boost of fiber and nutrients.
Of course, the easiest way to warm a smoothie is to blend it just slightly longer. The high speed of the motor (especially if you’re using a high-speed blender like a Vitamix) gently warms the smoothie ingredients for you! I tend to blend all my smoothies (especially my favorite versions with frozen berries and peanut butter) just slightly longer, as to bring the mixture up to room temperature. Funny enough though, when I was pregnant, I only wanted my smoothies (and all beverages, for that matter) to be ICE COLD , so you do you when it comes to your smoothie temperature preferences!
Warming ingredients + vibrant nutrient-dense foods = sunshine in a glass!
Turmeric, Coconut and Ginger Smoothie
1 cup frozen cauliflower rice
1 small knob fresh ginger, peeled
1/8 tsp. turmeric
2 dates, pits removed
1 Tbsp. Coconut butter
1 Tbsp. flax seeds
1 scoop collagen peptides, optional
2 cups coconut milk (I love using full fat canned coconut milk)
Bee pollen + coconut flakes, to garnish
Add all ingredients to a high speed blender, such as a Vitamix.
Blend on high until smooth and creamy, about 60 seconds. Blend slightly longer to make smoothie room temperature, if desired.
Pour into a glass and garnish with bee pollen and coconut flakes, if desired. Enjoy!
This is another question I get often. You can make this without the turmeric paste, it’s just not my preference. I like having the paste on hand for smoothies, tea, and even to use in stir fry dishes. If you’d like to skip this step, simply use 1 teaspoon turmeric powder and a pinch of black pepper in your smoothie.
This turmeric smoothie is a great smoothie to drink daily if you have joint pain or any other inflammatory conditions. Not only is the turmeric anti-inflammatory, it calls for fresh ginger which is another powerful anti-inflammatory food. It’s refreshing with a nice bite, and a tropical sweetness from the pineapple and mango.

Another great way to incorporate turmeric into your diet is this Cauliflower Soup with Coconut, Turmeric, and Lime.
Healthy Tips for Using Turmeric
Curcumin is the component in turmeric that is hailed for health, but it does require a couple of aides to maximize its power. On its own, curcumin can do just a little good, but black pepper has been shown to increase curcumin bioavailability by 2000%. Yes, that common spice can boost how much our bodies utilize from turmeric by two THOUSAND percent.
Also, curcumin is fat-soluble, so many dietitians recommend enjoying some fat with turmeric to help improve absorption. In my everyday turmeric smoothie recipe below, I add a little full-fat coconut milk for both its creaminess and to support the turmeric. I love making my food do double duty.

Notes & Tips
- How to use Fresh fruits– You can also make this smoothie with fresh fruits, just add ice cubes and blend all together. This will give thick texture for the smoothie.
- Texture – Frozen fruit gives the smoothie a thick texture and makes it really cool and refreshing.
- Substitute –
- Orange – In place of navel orange, you can use any type of sweet orange variety.
- Banana – I have used frozen red bananas, replace it with regular banana or plantain.
- Milk- Replace coconut milk with any type of nut milk.
- Storage – You can serve immediately or store in refrigerator for later use.
- Variations – Freeze them in popsicle mold and let it rest for overnight. Before serving take out from freezer and allow to rest for few seconds and remove from the mold and serve.
