Peach Pineapple Smoothie
I have chosen to make this smoothie using canned fruit. Why? Because it is shelf-stable, inexpensive, and easy to find no matter what time of year it is. It is also easy to stock up on when it’s on sale and save for later.
You can, of course, make this with fresh or frozen fruits instead. Just sub it out in equal parts.
Is this smoothie better with fresh, frozen or canned fruit?
I have made a LOT of smoothies in my life. A LOT. My favorite thing to use is frozen fruit because it is always picked and frozen at peak ripeness so it always has a lot of flavor, sometimes more flavor than fresh fruits.
It also makes finding a variety of fruits easily accessible no matter the time of year.
Plus I can easily keep frozen fruit on hand in my freezer and make smoothies any time.
It also cuts down on the amount of ice needed in my smoothies. So that is cool too.
If I can’t source frozen fruit, I turn to fresh fruit. Or sometimes I choose fresh fruit because I already have it on hand or it looks amazing, or it was on sale. I really also love using fresh fruit in smoothies. Just remember you will need to add ice to your smoothie recipes.
But I have started experimenting more with canned fruits. Canned fruit is also picked and canned at peak ripeness so the fruit is always flavorful. What I don’t love about canned fruit is that sometimes it comes in heavy syrup. I am not a fan of canned fruit in heavy syrup. I always look for canned fruit in juice. I will pick that every single time.
Your recipe called for canned fruit, how do I sub frozen or fresh?
It’s easy! Just use a 1:1 substitute for fruit. You may need to adjust the liquid too.
