Pineapple Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to use up leftover fruit that is about to go bad, which is exactly how this recipe was created. I had way too much pineapple in the refrigerator and needed to use it up, as well as some fruit juice that I normally don’t keep in the house.

Summertime smoothies are incredibly adaptable and you can literally use almost any fruit you have available! Whip some up for breakfast, as a snack on your way out the door, or even on a hot summer night as a virgin cocktail!

Don’t have fresh fruit available? Keep some frozen fruit on hand for whenever the fancy strikes you!

Ingredients Used:

See below for Smoothie 101 (tips and tricks for making smoothies)!

  • Pineapple – Use fresh pineapple for these smoothies.
  • Banana – One medium banana.
  • Yogurt – Use Greek vanilla yogurt.
  • Fruit Juice – You can use orange juice, pineapple juice, or a combination of these.
  • Ice – You’ll need about three cups of ice, or as much as you need for a nice consistency.

How to make Pineapple Banana Smoothies:

Step 1
Combine ingredients. In a large mixer, combine the smoothie ingredients – the fresh pineapple, banana, yogurt, and fruit juice.

Step 2
Blend. Blend ingredients and then gradually add ice until you reach a nice frozen consistency. We like ours on the thicker side so I had ice until it’s barely drinkable! (Texas heat makes everything melt fast!)

Step 3
Serve. Pour the smoothies into two glasses. Add blackberry and/or pineapple garnishes.

Here are a few tips and tricks I use for making our smoothies!

  1. Pick a base for that creamy factor – a banana, a scoop of peanut butter, yogurt, or an avocado.
  2. Choose a fruit (or two) – frozen berries, fresh fruit, an orange, etc.
  3. Choose a liquid (if needed) – any kind of milk, any kind of juice, or even water.
  4. If you’re using fresh fruit (not frozen), you’ll need more ice.
  5. If you go with frozen fruit, you’ll need more liquid.
  6. Want to add greens? Add spinach, kale, celery, or anything you like.
  7. Want to add other things? Try flax seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, applesauce, etc.
  8. Have extra smoothie? Pour it into ice cube trays and freeze for later!
