Pineapple Smoothie - this healthy smoothie recipe is refreshing and will have you feeling like you're sitting at the beach

Pineapple Smoothie

There is something so glorious about the first few warm days of summer.  It makes me want to kick off my shoes and run away to the ocean.

But since I live in Indiana, and there is no beach in sight, I like to bring beachy flavors to my home, and a refreshing, cold smoothie is a great way to do this!

Inspired by my love for pineapple (yes I loooooove pineapple) I decided that a smoothie just dedicated to this one amazingly sweet and tangy flavor was a must-have.  So I have perfected this and am sharing this pineapple smoothie recipe with you today.

What other fruit goes well with pineapple?

This pineapple smoothie recipe focuses on one main flavor, pineapple.  But if you want to modify this recipe, there are other fruits that go well with pineapple too!  I love raspberries (check out my Pineapple Raspberry Smoothie), banana (check out my Green Pina Colada Smoothie), mango  (check out my Simple and Delicious Green Smoothie Recipe) or orange.

Can I mix banana with pineapple?

Most definitely!  In fact, this recipe, and many other recipes of mine have a banana thrown in.  Bananas add a rich, smooth consistency without overtaking the main flavor of the smoothie if used in small enough quantities.

Bananas are the perfect companion to this pineapple smoothie since it helps it stay creamy and delicious and you can hardly taste it at all!

Can you mix milk and pineapple?

Pineapple is acidic and in theory, could cause milk (or milk products) to curd.  I have never seen this happy though.  I use milk and pineapple is my smoothies all the time though without any problem.  However, for this recipe, I use pineapple juice as my liquid so you don’t even need to worry about it!

What blender is best for smoothies?

There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best.  I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies!  You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE.

 

Are you ready for this incredible pineapple smoothie recipe?  Alright, here we go…

Of course, you can modify the ingredients if you like.  The great thing about smoothies is that you can use what you have and modify them to your preference.

But this smoothie is so incredibly delicious that you really do need to try it just like the recipe.
