Pineapple Ginger Lemonade is a refreshing slushy drink that’s perfect for summer. Simply blend all the ingredients and enjoy. Spike it up for a delicious cocktail.
This recipe was a result of just tossing some ingredients together in my blender and the outcome was too good not to share. Using canned pineapple makes it so easy and the juice is already in the can.
You can use canned pineapple chunks in 100% pineapple juice or cut up a fresh pineapple. It's up to you.
Ginger is a common ingredient I use in my smoothies and drinks because it’s so good for you. I usually buy it fresh, peel it, cut it up into small chunks, and freeze any pieces that are leftover.
These crushed ginger cubes are a staple in my freezer. Just throw a cube or two in the blender along with your favorite drinks or smoothie. Talk about easy!
You can also find it minced in a jar or sold in a tube which is extremely convenient and worth it. If you go that route, read the ingredients and make sure it’s just ginger and not a whole bunch of other stuff.
I was very disappointed when I realized minced ginger in a squeeze bottle included seven other ingredients that included sugar.
If fresh isn’t an option, you can use ground.

Fresh lemon juice is best, but bottled works too. I won’t judge. Honestly, I keep a big bottle of lemon juice in my fridge and when I don’t have fresh lemons around or I’m feeling lazy, I use the bottled stuff. Just make sure it’s pure lemon juice and nothing else.
This spring I purchased a pineapple sage plant and it's been giving me these beautiful flavorful leaves that taste just like pineapple. If you find this herb at your garden center, buy it. Use it to flavor your water, fruit salads, or to garnish your pineapple ginger lemonade.
The combination of ginger and lemon mixed with the sweet citrusy flavor of pineapple is amazing. Slushy deliciousness perfect to quench your thirst. Make it all summer long and enjoy.
If you want a delicious cocktail, add some vodka. No mix needed when you have the option of this fresh, tasty pineapple ginger lemonade. Best of all, no funky ingredients.
Life is too short for mediocre food and drinks!
