Fun Pineapple Smoothie Recipes

Pineapple Smoothie Recipes

Pineapple often gets overlooked when it comes to making smoothies. In the past, some blenders weren’t strong enough to blend pineapple,but that has changed.  Today, blenders have more powerful motors and the blade system on new blenders is dramatically more efficient than previous models.  That means-bring on the pineapple smoothies!

Easy Pineapple Smoothie Recipes

Pineapple is a tropical fruit and needs special climate and weather to thrive.  Americans are lucky with Hawaii being the perfect combination of clime and weather for growing these delicious fruits.  Now, most major supermarkets carry pineapple year round, although frozen and canned pineapple is almost always available.

Pineapple by itself will make a great smoothie, but it works very well with many other fruits and add ins for delicious smoothies.  Here are two great, yet very simple, recipes that start with pineapple and then add in a few ingredients for amazing flavors.  Fire up the blender, it’s time to make smoothies!

Pineapple Banana Smoothie Recipe

Pineapple Banana Smoothie Recipe

Take two tropical fruits,  add some juice and ice, and you have a refreshing smoothie.  This is a great drink for those really hot summer days.  Banana and pineapple mix for a sweet flavor and the juice gives the drink a bit of a bite to offset the sweetness.

1/4 fresh pineapple.   Peeled, cored and cubed into small chunk.

1 large or 2 very small bananas, cut into small chunks.

1 cup apple or pineapple juice

1/2 cup (about 6) ice cubes.

Make sure you have cut the fruit into small chunks or cubes.

All everything to your blender and mix.

Frozen Pineapple Smoothie

Thick Pineapple Smoothie

This recipe is for pineapple lovers.  Banana is used with this recipe also, but frozen pineapple is used instead of fresh.  This gives you a thick, malt-like smoothie that is rich tasting and very satisfying.  Yogurt is added to give the drink a richness that mimics ice cream.

1 banana cut into pieces

1 1/2 cups frozen pineapple chunks

1 1/2 cups pineapple juice

3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt

Blend all ingredients until smooth.
