Pineapple Smoothie Recipe

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

  • pineapple
  • banana
  • 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.

How to make a Pineapple Smoothie

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.

The directions are simple:

  1. Add ingredients to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour and enjoy!

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.

Can you freeze fresh pineapple for a smoothie?

It’s really easy to freeze fresh pineapple! First peel the skin off of the pineapple, then cut into small chunks (smaller is better for smoothies). Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lay pineapple out in a single layer. Slide the whole sheet pan into the freezer. Once the pineapple chunks are frozen, transfer them to a freezer bag.
