Ingredients

Pineapple banana smoothie ingredients.

Banana – To make this smoothie, Use a large ripe banana. It will add flavor and sweetness.

Pineapple – Try to use fresh, ripe pineapple for the best result. You can buy frozen fresh pineapples to save yourself some time.

Greek Yogurt has been strained to remove most of its whey, resulting in thick, creamy yogurt. You can use plain Greek yogurt or yogurt flavored with pineapple.

Milk is optional, but I add it to thin the smoothie a bit. Use your milk of choice.

Honey is also optional. If the banana and pineapple are sweet enough, you can skip adding them.

I sometimes replace honey with condensed milk for sweetness. This makes the smoothie richer and creamier.

Peel the pineapple and chop it into small pieces. Freeze 1 cup of chopped pineapple for 3-4 hours.

Pro Tips By Neha

Freeze the banana and pineapple for a few hours before adding them to the blender. Frozen fruits make the smoothies super chilled and thick, giving them a creamy texture.

If you have forgotten to freeze the fruits, add a few ice cubes while blending.

Avoid using canned pineapple or pineapple juice, as they will not do justice to this recipe. You will end up with something unhealthy and tastes yikes, and there is no point in using canned pineapple when you can easily get such beautiful fresh ones.

Add Ons

To make it even healthier, you can add flax seed powder and other dried nuts like almond or cashew nuts to this smoothie. Nut butter like peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter, and pistachio butter are also a great addition.

Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder to the recipe to make a pre or post-workout snack.

You can also add a little vanilla extract to flavor this yummy smoothie.

You can add leafy greens like spinach or kale, fresh orange juice, mango, kiwi fruit, strawberry, coconut water, coconut milk, pumpkin, flax seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, etc to this smoothie recipe and make new versions for yourself.

Other interesting options to add to this smoothie are orange, peach, papaya, apple, blueberry, passion fruit, ginger, and cinnamon. 

Replace plain yogurt with pineapple-flavored yogurt.

Milk can be replaced with pineapple juice or coconut water.

Cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple with a sharp knife.
