Pineapple Benefits

Why eat more pineapple? Not only is it loaded with fiber and nutrients, it also has some impressive potential health benefits.

The fact that pineapple tastes sweet and delicious is just a bonus!

What Fruit Mixes Well with Pineapple?

Pineapple mixes particularly well with other tropical fruits, like mango, coconut, and banana. In this pineapple smoothie, you’ll use banana for extra creaminess, along with coconut milk and orange juice.

The combination makes you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation!

How to Make a Pineapple Smoothie

To make this smoothie, you’ll need to start with frozen pineapple. I buy it frozen at the store, but you can also freeze your own by cutting it into chunks and freezing it flat on a lined baking sheet. (Similar to my tutorial on frozen watermelon, if you want to check that out for reference.)

The frozen pineapple gives this smoothie a slushy, frozen texture similar to a milkshake. You’ll also want to use frozen bananas, to keep it nice and thick. (Here’s how to freeze bananas.)

I like to add in a little bit of coconut milk for creaminess, and satisfying fats to help keep you feeling full. I use the full-fat coconut milk that you find in a can, but you can use the refrigerated version, or any other type of milk you like, for a lower-fat option.

Using coconut milk also gives it a Piña Colada-like taste, but you can try it with almond milk or hemp milk, if you don’t love the coconut flavor.

Lately, I’ve been using half coconut milk with half orange juice as the liquid, because the orange juice adds a nice sweet & tangy flavor to balance out the creaminess. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen pineapple , cut into 1-inch pieces (125 grams)
  • 1/2 frozen banana , cut into coins for easy blending (47 grams)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (I use full-fat canned; 102 grams)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (122 grams)

Instructions

  • Combine the frozen pineapple, banana, coconut milk, and orange juice in the blender, and blend until completely smooth. Add a splash of water, if needed for blending, as sometimes the mixture can be very thick.
  • Serve right away for the best flavor and texture. Leftover smoothie can be frozen into popsicle molds for an easy frozen treat later.

Notes

If you use fresh pineapple or banana for this recipe, you may need to add ice. Keep in mind this may dilute the flavor slightly. For a lower-fat and less filling drink, you can use coconut milk from the refrigerated section, or just use water for blending, instead.

I add a peeled orange instead of the orange juice. It cuts calories and gives more fiber. Sometimes I’ll add a piece of ginger too. This is a great recipe..yummmm
