Pineapple Sunshine Water Kefir Smoothie Recipe

Leeza Zurwick


Pineapple is loaded with vitamin C and bromelain, which is an enzyme that helps improve digestion, and also has anti-inflammatory effects. Pineapples are also fairly rich in manganese, B vitamins, folate and fibre, making the pairing with water kefir a supercharged nutritional smoothie! Pineapple adds a burst of  flavour. Turmeric is best known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and the high concentrations of curcumin (which gives turmeric its beautiful, golden color), can also help decrease muscle pain after exercise.


MAKES: about 2 cups


  • 1 cup first ferment water kefir
  • 5 big chunks pineapple – fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup cucumber
  • 1/2 cup med. carrot or 1/8 cup PURE carrot juice
  • 1/2 cup med. apple  
  • 1 sprig mint
  • 1 sprig sweet basil
optional immune boosters: 1 tbsp grated ginger, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 2 tbsp honey (or vegan alternative)

Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.

After 24 hours, strain the grains and add the ingredients to the blender with the first ferment nut milk kefir.

Blend & Enjoy!
