Banana Pineapple Smoothie

The sweetness of the fruit is balanced nicely with the slightly tart pineapple in this drink. Without adding more than a hint of coconut flavor, coconut water creates a much lighter smoothie than the alternative dairy-based smoothies.

I like to add frozen bananas to our smoothies, but if you don’t happen to have a frozen banana on hand, a regular one will still serve to thicken the smoothie nicely. (I keep a bag of ripe peeled bananas in the freezer at all times for this reason.)

My family is laughably passionate in their love of smoothies. (That might have something to do with the reason why there are over 50 smoothie recipes on this website!) On almost any given day, you’re likely to find our blender on the counter making smoothies in almost every color of the rainbow.

The orange juice in this smoothie serves to sweeten the drink perfectly and that sweetness does a great job of balancing the tart pineapple.

You’ll notice that this smoothie calls for Coconut Water Ice Cubes. We rarely manage to go through a full container of coconut water, so these coconut ice cubes are a staple in our freezer.

If you don’t keep coconut water (or coconut ice cubes) on hand, you can easily swap in plain ice cubes or plain water instead.

And if you love the combination of pineapple and orange as much as we do, you’ll want to put the Pineapple Orange Julius on your list to try soon.
