This quick and easy fresh pineapple smoothie recipe is made with yogurt, milk and frozen pineapples. It’s a tropical healthy breakfast smoothie or snack.
My sister calls this simple pineapple smoothie an “ALOHA pineapple smoothie” since it has tropical flavors and a beautiful yellow color just like Hawaii’s sunshine. It’s just as good as my Orange Banana Mango Smoothie and my Raspberry Banana Smoothie. All of these smoothies are rich and creamy and super refreshing.
Mango pineapple smoothie
Another delicious flavor variation of this basic recipe. Use 1/2 up frozen mango slices and 1/2 cup frozen pineapple slices.
Strawberry pineapple smoothie
Add 1/3 cup frozen strawberries and 1-2 more ice cubes into the mixture.
Pineapple banana smoothie/ Banana pineapple smoothie
Add 1 banana and 2-3 more ice cubes in the mixture.
Pineapple spinach smoothie/ Kale pineapple smoothie
Add 1/3 cup fresh spinach OR fresh kale in the mixture. Don’t use both together! You will definitely need to add some honey to sweeten it a bit. Quite frankly, I am not too fond of this version but I make it once in a while when I am trying to increase my veggie intake.
Pineapple orange smoothie
Replace milk with orange juice.
Blueberry pineapple smoothie
Add 1/3 cup frozen blueberries and 1-2 more ice cubes in the mixture. You will end up with a pretty “purple” colored smoothie.
Pineapple coconut smoothie
Use coconut milk. You can even mix in 1 tbsp toasted desiccated coconut in the mixture although it does make the smoothie a little chunky but still very tasty.
Uses of this smoothie
- Perfect for a post work out snack
- Great as breakfast on the go
- Awesome for losing weight (it was my favorite smoothie when I was losing all that pregnancy weight!)

Tips for healthy pineapple smoothie recipe
- You must use a high quality blender since you would be crushing hard ice pieces and frozen pineapple pieces.
- Make this smoothie with greek yogurt since it’s thick and has a better flavor and texture than regular yogurt. You can even use vanilla yogurt to add a little more flavor.
- I highly recommend making this pineapple smoothie with frozen pineapple pieces. That’s because this is what helps maintain the thick consistency of this smoothie.
- Don’t use canned pineapples because their flavor is just not as fresh or good enough. Use fresh frozen pineapples.
