Ingredients and Substitutions

Frozen pineapple: It’s easy to make this creamy pineapple smoothie year-round thanks to the use of frozen pineapple chunks, which can be found in the frozen section of most grocery stores. If you prefer using fresh, you can cut a fresh pineapple and store the chunks in the freezer until frozen.

Ice: This lends additional creamy texture and hydration.

Milk: Oat milk makes the perfect plant-based milk option for this smoothie recipe, but almond milk and coconut milk (makes it piña colada-like!) also make excellent choices. If not on a dairy-free or vegan diet, you can use regular whole milk, if you prefer!

Yogurt: I love to use plant-based cashew milk yogurt in this recipe, but coconut yogurt works well as another vegan option. If you are not dairy-free, Greek yogurt works beautifully! 

Vanilla: This is my secret ingredient! Vanilla extract adds that beautiful vanilla flavor tone that helps tie all the tropical flavors together.

Add-ins

Want an extra dose of vitamin C? Add a splash of orange juice to this recipe.

Want to add protein powder? A scoop of vanilla protein powder works great in this recipe.

Want some green power? Add a handful of spinach or kale before blending.

Want to up the sweetness? A teaspoon of raw honey or maple syrup levels this smoothie up to dessert status!

Top Tip

Are you a fan of smoothie bowls? You can most definitely pour this pineapple smoothie into a bowl instead of a glass! It tastes great topped off with fresh fruit like peach slices, chopped mango, strawberry slices or blueberries.
