Pineapple Banana Smoothie

A beautiful golden pineapple and two perfect yellow bananas isolated on white.Treat yourself to this tropical, delicious, fruity, healthy, quick and easy to make smoothie.

This recipe comes not from my own kitchen experimentation, but rather a loyal reader and smoothie enthusiast. Thanks, Corinne!

I tend to get carried away with the ingredients when concocting my smoothies; so it was nice to blend up a tasty treat that only contained four ingredients. Sometimes simple is best.

A few health benefits you’ll derive from this smoothie:

  • Immune system booster
  • Great for digestion and elimination
  • Provides antioxidant protection
  • Good for your bones
  • Supports the health of your eyes
  • Rich in an array of vitamins and minerals, in particular vitamin C, manganese, and potassium

The original recipe from Corinne called for frozen yogurt. I substituted an organic maple syrup flavored one. Feel free to use your preferred yogurt. Enjoy!

    Thought I’d give this recipe a try, as we had some bananas that really needed to be eaten. Doubled up on this for both my husband and I for breakfast and used unsweetened coconut milk instead of almond. Also added chia seeds and coconut oil. It’s a great tasting smoothie, but next time I’d use less liquid. I like my smoothies a little thicker. Thanks Corinne for the recipe and thanks Ryan for sharing! :)

      Hi Amber,

      Nice to hear you and your husband enjoyed this smoothie. Can’t got wrong with chia seeds and coconut oil. Many of my recipes aren’t overly thick to accommodate those with less powerful blenders. Definitely use less liquid if you prefer thicker smoothies.

      Cheers,
      Ryan
