I am enjoying this right now and if I could give it more than five stars, I would! It's so good - the only thing I changed was that I added 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder - just for personal dietary preferences, as I often sub protein shakes for my breakfast and am always looking for new flavor possibilities so I don't get bored. I didn't refrigerate the pineapple or banana and it's just fine! Now I'm not so mad at DH for eating all of one of my ingredients for dinner tonight. Since I have to stop at the store anyway, now I can get more pineapple and bananas so that I can have this again tomorrow! :) I had planned to have the rest after my workout this afternoon, but...hope I can resist the temptation and wait till then.....:)
This was a refreshing change to my morning routine! The candied ginger added a flair, without heat. I added a few ice cubes, and used fat-free buttermilk. Excellent recipe, Julie B! Thanks for sharing...made for ZWT 5.
I don't care for ginger but my mother loves it, so I made this for her - exactly to the recipe. She really enjoyed a glass of this shake for this morning's breakfast and is pleased that she has another serve to enjoy tomorrow morning. She loved the blend of flavours and wouldn't even mind a bit more ginger in it! So, Julie, I'll certainly be making this again. Next time, I'm going to try making it with Greek yoghurt instead of the buttermilk. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Made for PRMR.
Yum! My family really loved this! I froze the banana, used fresh pineapple and fresh pineapple juice, and I used soy milk instead of buttermilk just to make it a little healthier. I also used the optional coconut extract and even added a little fresh coconut to the mix. Delicious! Thanks! Made for ZWT4 - Jefes de la Cocina!
This is a delicious shake! We are always experimenting with different kinds and this one was a hit. We love the pineapple-banana combination. It was just sweet enough, too! Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
Used the ingredients listed, but I did freeze both the banana & the pineapple chunks (minus the juice) & had a very think, WONDERFUL DRINK! Definitely something I'd make again as I really enjoyed the combo of buttermilk & pineapple & ginger! Thanks for sharing!

Really, really good! I made fake buttermilk with 1 T white vinegar added to the milk, but otherwise followed directions (except for having no coconut extract). My 1-year-old loved it too. Though my 3-year-old likes bananas and helped himself to the entire rest of the crushed pineapple, he refused the drink. Go figure. More for me! Reviewed for ZWT4
WONDERFUL! I LOVED this different tropical shake! I made it as directed but with frozen bananas. I used the coconut extract and added some rum extract. The candied ginger is what makes this so special. It flavors it of zippy refreshing ginger and it sweetens it. Made for the Beverage tag game.
I made this for dh and I this morning. Yummy! I had to use powdered ginger, but would have to put more in next time as I couldn't really tell. I was dreaming I was on a beach while sipping this gem. Thanks, Julie B's Hive!
This is not one of my favorites, but this is my own fault as I tasted too much ginger. Used powedered ginger and that could have been the problem. Didn't have any coconut either and so another problem perhaps. Thanks for posting Julie~ Made for January Beverage Tag 08.
