Pineapple is maybe the best of all the tropical fruit. Somehow it adds just a little bit of the islands to any recipe its used in. A perfect example is this juicy, zesty pineapple smoothie. It just makes your day as a starter or keeps you going as a snack

Add a tablespoon of Chia seed to the mix and you get a very nutritious drink filled with all sorts of good stuff like heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia has no taste of its own so adding it won’t change the “Pineapply” results!

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 can crushed pineapple with juice (8-12 ounce can size)
  • 1/2 c. cold orange juice
  • 1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced (TIP: Peel and slice BEFORE FREEZING!)
  • 1 cup low-fat yogurt (plain, vanilla, banana or pineapple)
  • 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
  • ½-1 cup of ice, as needed

Yogurt is a perfect smoothie ingredient because it goes with just about everything else. Other than your personal taste, it really doesn’t matter what king of yogurt you choose for your next yogurt fruit smoothie because all are good.

Lately it seems like most smoothie recipes (including ours) recommend using Greek Yogurt over regular but, again, this is totally up to you. Greek yogurt has a different texture than traditional yogurt but both are very good.

This yogurt fruit smoothie recipe can easily use just about any type of yogurt you prefer. Enjoy!

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen Pineapple (crushed or diced)
  • 1/2 cup blackberries (blueberries work too)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Almond milk
  • 1tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. Chia Seed

If the frozen Pineapple doesn’t make the smoothie cold enough for your tastes, feel free to add ice cubes to the mix. Maybe a 1/2 cup or so.
