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!
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
- 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:
- Add ingredients to a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- 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.
