Who doesn’t love a delicious, hearty breakfast to start the day? And if it’s healthy too, their is no looking back. Smoothies are my all time breakfast favourites and I churn them in all possible combinations.
Last week I got a fabulously fresh pineapple from our local road side vendor and while half of it was snacked upon, the remaining half went into making this Pineapple Banana Smoothie.
With the availability of low fat greek yogurt easily in India now, It’s my preferred type of yogurt for smoothie recipes as it makes them thick and luscious and still keep the calorie count under check. However, if it’s not available, you can use the regular curd. You can strain the curd for a few hours before adding it in smoothies for extra richness.
Here are some information about greek yogurt that you would like to know
What is Greek Yogurt?
Greek Yogurt is yogurt that has been strained to remove most of it’s whey resulting in a thick creamy yogurt. Greek yogurt is lower in lactose and has double the protein content as compared to regular yogurt. You can read more about the benefits of greek yogurt here.
You can also use almond milk or Cashew Yogurt to make a vegan version of this Pineapple and Banana Smoothie.
Also do not forget to replace honey with maple syrup if you are doing it Vegan.
And Please please don’t use caned pineapple or canned pineapple juice to make this healthy Pineapple Banana Smoothie. It will definitely not do justice to this recipe and you will end up with something that is not healthy, will taste yikes and their is no point in using canned pineapple when you get such beautiful fresh ones so easily.
I like to freeze my fruits for a couple of hours before throwing them in the blender. The smoothies comes out super chilled and thick and their is no need to add extra ice cubes to it.
Frozen Pineapple and bananas gives a very nice texture to this healthy Pineapple Banana Greek Yogurt Smoothie. Here is how to make Banana Pineapple Smoothie.
