Pineapple Smoothie Recipe
I have a new addiction. A healthy, lusciously addictive (without any alcohol) creamy, icy, refreshing balance of sweetness and citrus. I call it the Skinny Pineapple Smoothie. Or you can call it delicious.
I made this mango pineapple smoothie recipe on Monday and I drank it all by myself. Stir it up again on Tuesday, gave a little to Patrick, who said it was better than any drink he’d had – at home or a restaurant – and commandeered the rest.
We really can’t get enough of the goodness of this pineapple smoothie. This time, it’s a very, very good thing because this smoothie recipe is quick, easy, and nutritious! If you love this pineapple smoothie, you’ll love my Strawberry Lime Banana Protein Smoothie too!
Ingredients for Pineapple Smoothie
This tropical pineapple smoothie is made with pineapple, mango, banana, vanilla Greek yogurt, coconut milk, orange juice and pineapple juice, but is completely customizable!
- Pineapple: Fresh, frozen or canned – whatever you have on hand!
- Canned Pineapple: For this pineapple smoothie recipe, I like to use a 20 oz. It’s okay to put the pineapple chunks in the juice because then you don’t have to cut the pineapple and you get the juice too! Plus, canned pineapple is readily available and ripe when you need it, which makes this smoothie ready to go!
- Fresh pineapple: If you are using fresh pineapple, you will need to add some pineapple juice separately to achieve the right consistency and flavor.
- Frozen pineapple: You can also use frozen pineapple and eliminate the ice and pineapple juice from the recipe to achieve the desired consistency.
- Mango: Added a huge YUM factor. Mangoes are like tropical salt – they bring out the flavor! They’re sweet, slightly tangy, and blend to creamy perfection. If you’re intimidated by choosing a mango – don’t be, check out my How to Cut a Mango post, it teaches you all about mangoes!
- Frozen Bananas: I like to add frozen bananas to all my smoothies because they add a velvety creaminess and tropical banana flavor. It’s also very handy for chopping and popping any bananas that are about to go bad in the fridge.
- Pineapple Smoothie Without Bananas: If you don’t have frozen bananas, you can skip it and add ice cubes to the desired consistency. If you’re not a banana fan, you can also opt to use avocado or more dairy for a creamier flavor.
- Nonfat Vanilla Greek Yogurt: I’m obsessed with vanilla Greek yogurt – it makes everything better and you’ll love this protein! Vanilla yogurt adds sweet vanilla flavor and rich creaminess without adding vanilla extract.
- Light Coconut Milk: Coconut milk enhances the wonderful tropical flavor of this pineapple smoothie with its coconut goodness. It also helps achieve our smooth and creamy texture. If you don’t like coconut, you can replace it with milk.
- Orange Juice: Orange juice adds an enticing texture that balances out the sweet pineapple, banana, and yogurt. You can also use orange pineapple juice or any juice mix here. I just love orange soup! If you find that your oranges are spoiling before you have a chance to make a pineapple smoothie, you can juice the oranges and freeze the juice in a plastic bag to the desired serving size. Remember, if you’re using frozen orange juice, you probably won’t need any ice cubes.
