Ingredients Needed

  • Pineapple: I love buying frozen pineapple chunks, or you can slice a fresh pineapple and freeze the pieces for at least 2 hours before making your smoothie.
  • Banana:  Make sure your banana is ripe for the best flavor!
  • Greek yogurt: use your favorite yogurt brand and flavor. I love using Dannon Light + Fit or Chobani Zero Sugar. Yogurt flavors I recommend would be vanilla, coconut, or banana.
  • Honey: agave or maple syrup work fantastic in this smoothie. 
  • Milk: We use unsweetened vanilla almond milk but you can use any kid of milk.
  • Cream of coconut: can be found in the mixer aisle with the alcohol. It’s really flavorful and adds a nice coconut flavor to the smoothie. You can omit, but if you do you might want to increase the honey to 2 tablespoons.

Expert Tip

  • If you decide skip the cream of coconut, add in a few drops of vanilla or coconut extract for taste. 
  • You could also freeze the banana for a thicker texture.
  • Nondairy coconut milk is a great addition for even more flavor!

Variations

  • Add a handful of fresh greens to turn this into a healthy green smoothie.
  • I love adding chia seeds to my smoothies for their healthy fat contents.
  • Add a bit of pineapple juice if you want a stronger flavor.

  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • ½ cup (4 ounces) Greek yogurt (see note)

  • 2 tablespoons cream of coconut optional, see note
  • ¾ cup milk see note

Instructions

  • for desired consistency.

Recipe Notes

  • Greek Yogurt – use your favorite brand and flavor. I love using flavored yogurt to amp
    up the flavor of the smoothie. Vanilla, coconut, banana – any of them would be good.
    Just know different brands have different sugar content. I love using Danon Light + Fit or Chobani Zero Sugar.
  • Cream of Coconut (i.e. CocoReal) can be found in the mixer aisle with the alcohol. It’s
    really flavorful and adds a nice coconut flavor to the smoothie. You can omit, but if you do you might want to increase the honey to 2 tablespoons (to taste). You can also
    substitute some coconut or vanilla extract (1/4 tsp each).
  • Use any kind of milk you like. We use unsweetened vanilla almond milk but you can use any nondairy or milk.
  • Make sure your banana is ripe for best flavor.
  • If you have a fresh pineapple you can use that, just slice it into chunks and freeze them for 2 hours before making the smoothie. I don’t suggest using canned frozen pineapple.
