Pineapple Smoothie is so fresh and it’s bursting with a tropical flavor that is nicely balanced by the lime juice and zest. It takes only 5 minutes to make it and you can enjoy it any time of the time. Thanks to the pineapple banana combination, this beverage is refreshing and sweet.

Best Pineapple Smoothie Recipe

Can I use frozen pineapple?

If you have trouble finding fresh fruit, frozen will work as well. Try not to let the frozen fruit thaw out or you may have trouble blending it.

What else can I add to a pineapple smoothie?

If you want to have a variety of fruits, feel free to add some more! Mango, papaya, kiwi, and banana are great choices.

For an antioxidant boost and some Vitamin C add some berries: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or strawberries.

One of the nice things about fruit smoothies is how easy they are to customize. To make yours even healthier, consider using some of these add-ins:

  • rolled oats – a good source of fiber.
  • flaxseed – great to boost your intake of Omega 3.
  • whey protein powder – instantly increase your daily protein intake!
  • wheat germ – great source if fiber, healthy fat and high in Vitamin E.
  • chia seeds – another great source of Omega 3.
  • coconut milk – some studies suggest that it may reduce inflammation, decrease ulcer size and fight viruses.
  • add a handful of baby spinach or kale to make a green smoothie – high in iron and antioxidants.

If you like really thick smoothies, add more ice cubes; you’ll think you’re drinking a milkshake!

I love pineapple in my smoothies! Banana is a good way to balance it out too. I've never tried all the different seeds in my smoothies, but I want to give it a try - I could benefit from their nutrients.

Pineapple is my favorite fruit - but I have never tried it in a smoothie. A frozen cocktail, yes! But, a smoothie? Never! I will have to try it.
