Pineapple Smoothie


In the past month, I have traveled to Washington, Georgia, Denver and Utah- just returning home to Texas late last night.  I’ve been home a total of 7 days of the past 30 day – Phew!  {Now comes all the endless catching up . . . }

Don’t we always have times when life seems a little hetic . . . Here’s a fast and easy smoothie for busy mornings, an afternoon pick-me-up, or late-night snack.  This pineapple smoothie reminds me of the taste of frozen yogurt to satisfy that “I need something sweet” attack- yet we can feel good knowing pineapple is low-fat, is rich in fiber, and is packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium.  Pinepple also contains manganese which helps build bones; and pineapple has bromelain that gives the fruit an anti-inflammatory benefit.

Busy day or any day, your family will love this smoothie; it’s two-ingredients easy!

  4. Just wondering, the recipe calls for fresh pineapple.. Can I use canned pineapple instead of the fresh?

  5. Amber- I think you could use canned. I would make sue to get one canned in juice rather than heavy sugar. Hope you enjoy!

  6. What a delicious pineapple smoothie, Kyra! I love it. And it is so quick to make. I love the simplicity of the recipe. Not to mention that yummy pic!

  7. This is good with any kind of fruit – canned or fresh, though fresh is nicer! We usually throw in a banana for good measure (no matter what other kind of fruit we are using!)

  8. Looks good gonna try it now
