This pineapple smoothie tastes like a tropical paradise in a glass. So refreshing and deliciously sweet, it’s the perfect smoothie recipe to start your day!
I love making smoothies for breakfast because they’re quick, easy & always delicious. I love when smoothies are creamy and frothy, and when it’s hot outside – it’s the perfect way to cool off. And that’s why today I’m sharing this pineapple smoothie recipe. It only has 4 ingredients, and it tastes like sweet sunshine.
I usually go for a mixed berry smoothie or a strawberry banana smoothie in the morning – but I decided to switch things up by making this pineapple smoothie instead. It has a deliciously sweet and slightly tangy flavor thanks to the pineapple and orange juice. Then it’s thick and creamy because we’re adding in banana and yogurt.
Pineapple Smoothie Ingredients
- orange juice
- and yogurt.
You can use fresh pineapple or frozen pineapple chunks, and feel free to use plain or vanilla yogurt. Sometimes I’ll throw in 1 cup of ice cubes for a thicker smoothie – but that’s totally up to you.
You can also switch it up by using pineapple orange juice or tropical fruit juice instead of orange juice. Or you can turn this recipe into a strawberry pineapple smoothie by adding 1 cup of strawberries instead of the bananas.
The pineapple makes this smoothie sweet, tropical and completely delicious. I love the combo of sweet pineapple, tangy citrus, and mellow banana. Then the yogurt helps to keep you full longer and adds calcium.
This pineapple smoothie is such a delicious, easy recipe whether you’re looking for a smoothie for breakfast or a snack. And because it can be easily made with fresh or frozen fruit – you can enjoy it any time of year.
