Ingredients for a Pineapple Smoothie

No need to go overboard when making a pineapple smoothie. This recipe calls for 5 simple ingredients.

  • Frozen pineapple: it is important to use frozen pineapple because this will be the base of your smoothie.
  • Banana: banana is another great way to add sweetness without adding any white sugar.
  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt not only helps smooth things out, but it also adds protein!
  • Pineapple juice: pineapple juice is a necessity to get that tropical flavor you love.
  • Almond milk: in order to reduce sugar, we decided to use half almond milk, which also gave this pineapple smoothie recipe a super creamy consistency.

Can I use fresh pineapple?

You can use fresh pineapple in this recipe, but if you do, we recommend adding in a few cups of ice for your base.

Where can I find pineapple juice?

We actually used the juice from a can of 100% pineapple chunks. Look in the canned fruit section of any grocery store.
