Zanzibar Shake

Kimberly Snyder
Servings 16 ounces


  • 1 cup chopped ripe fresh pineapple (frozen works, too)
  • 1 cup chopped ripe fresh banana, (frozen works, too: see Note)
  • 1 cup cold coconut water
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric or a pinch of grated fresh turmeric


  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • While blending, take a deep breath in and then breathe out any tension, relaxing as you would on a tropical island, to resonate with the chilled-out energy of the locale in which these ingredients are grown and to feel the full effects. Hakuna matata! (No worries!)
  • Serve the shake at once.


Frozen bananas add even more creaminess to this shake. This is another great reason to peel and freeze your ripe bananas!
