This pineapple ginger juice recipe has been my go-to juice recipe. I say this because I don’t typically enjoy preparing juices, as it can be time consuming. However, this juice recipe changed the game for me and made me more open to preparing homemade juices.
Listen, this recipe is so easy to make, even a 2 year old can do it.
All you have to do is put all the ingredients together in a blender, and voila! your pineapple ginger juice is ready!
I sent the recipe to my mom recently, and she fell in love with it that she made it several times over the last couple weeks. One thing she did mention that she loved about it is the fact that it has no trace of artificial sugar.
Unlike most juices you find in the grocery store, this particular recipe requires no added sugar. So for those who are trying to cut down their sugar intake, I strongly recommend giving this a try.
This recipe is also a go-to whenever I’m in the mindset of trying to lose weight. Instead of drinking smoothies, I usually opt for this. It helps to quench my juice cravings and I honestly believe that helps in weight reduction.
If you aren’t really a fan of ginger juices due to the gingery taste, I can guarantee you that this recipe would change the game for you..

I personally never liked ginger juices because it often irritated my throat due to the slappy sour ginger taste. But I noticed that the pineapples and cucumber in this recipe completely eliminated that factor.
I gave this to my husband the other day to try as a third opinion and he loved it. And my husband is a very picky eater. Therefore, if he thinks this juice is delicious, I can guarantee that you that you would love it too.
Ingredients For Pineapple Ginger Juice
- Cucumbers (with skin removed): Cucumbers add a fresh, crisp flavor to the juice. They are composed mostly of water, which helps to dilute stronger flavors and make the juice more refreshing. I suggest removing the skin to help ensure a smoother texture and a more mild, clean cucumber taste.
- Pineapple chunks: I used canned pineapple chunks, but you can buy fresh pineapples and cut them into chunks.
- Water: Water is used to adjust the consistency of the juice. Depending on how thick or thin you prefer your juice, you can add more or less.
- Lemon juice (freshly squeezed): Freshly squeezed lemon or store bough lemon juice would work.
- Ginger (skin removed): Ginger brings a spicy kick to the juice, which creates a nice contrast to the sweetness of the pineapple and the freshness of the cucumber. Therefore, don’t skip it.
How To Prepare
To make this ginger juice, place the prepared cucumbers, pineapple chunks, ginger, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and water into your blender. Ensure that the blender’s lid is securely in place.
Select the highest setting on your blender and process the ingredients. Let the blender run until the mixture appears well-puréed and smooth, with no large chunks remaining. This might take around 1-2 minutes depending on the power of your blender.
If you prefer a smoother juice without any pulp, you’ll want to strain the mixture.
To do this, place a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth over a large bowl or pitcher. Pour the blended mixture through the sieve or cheesecloth. Then using a spatula or the back of a spoon, gently press the pulp down and extract as much juice as possible. You might need to do this in batches depending on the size of your sieve and bowl.
Discard the pulp or save it for other recipes (it can be used in smoothies, baking, or composted).
