This Pineapple Orange Smoothie is an easy breakfast to make on those hectic mornings. Throw everything in the blender for a few minutes – put it in your travel cup, and you’re good to go!
Orange Pineapple Smoothie
I’m not a huge breakfast person, but my family enjoys trying new smoothie recipes, especially when there’s not enough time to make a huge meal in the morning!
Recently, I decided to make a few rounds of this Pineapple Orange Smoothie for everyone, and it was a huge hit, y’all.
Since our local store had fresh pineapple for $1.25 each this past week, we picked up a few. It’s easy to go ahead and cut it into chunks then freeze it for pineapple orange smoothies on busy days. (And there are a lot of those in my house!) When you freeze the fruit, you don’t need to add ice to the smoothie mixture. Simple as pie!
Like a lot of smoothies, by the way, this recipe is extremely customizable!! Add protein powder if you’re health-conscious or looking to make this a meal. you can use dairy-free substitutes if you’re lactose intolerant or looking to cut down on your milk consumption. Pineapple Orange Smoothies are a good snack for anyone.
This easy smoothie recipe is an energizing (and quick) way to start your day! Enjoy!!
Pineapple Orange Smoothie: Ingredients & Equipment
To make this easy smoothie recipe, you’ll need …
- pineapple chunks – frozen! That way, you don’t need to use ice.
- orange juice – grab your favorite brand! I’d pick something high-quality if possible because trust me, you’ll taste the difference.
- milk or milk substitute – you can use dairy milk or dairy-free milk for this, like coconut milk, oat milk, almond milk. Either way!
- pineapple-flavored Greek yogurt – this yogurt adds something delightful to the consistency, and of course, more yummy pineapple flavor. Can’t get enough!! You can also use orange-flavored or plain.
NOTE: If you want to be super fancy, feel free to garnish this drink with orange slices or mint or something similar. Of course, in my house, we’re usually too busy to do that in the morning! 😉
- blender – to, well, blend all your ingredients, of course! You’ll want to set it to HIGH until everything’s nice and smooth.
Pineapple Orange Smoothie: FAQs
Nope!! You can use fruit juice or some kind of water. I just like the consistency that the milk brings, plus it makes the smoothie SUPER filling.
Yes!! That’ll make it a whole meal if you do. A perfect breakfast substitute for a busy day! Just make sure to get unflavored, unsweetened protein powder, or it’ll affect the flavor too much.
Some people add vanilla extract to their smoothies to make them a little less sweet. This is optional here. If it’s something you normally do, go for it!
Absolutely, but you’ll want to add some ice to the smoothie to make it cold if you do. (There’s something very strange about a cool smoothie rather than a cold one …)
Just a few minutes! You just need to measure, blend, and enjoy!
About 2 large drinks, or 3-4 smaller ones if everyone in the family wants some!
Of course!! I just never have time in the morning. But feel free to do that! It’ll probably taste awesomely fresh!
