This refreshing and hydrating Pineapple Banana Smoothie is packed with vitamin C and has delectable tropical flavors. It’s fruity, creamy and satisfying along with being healthy.
Pineapples are flooding the market and Yashvi demanded pineapple smoothie as soon as she saw them. It’s her favorite fruit and I had simply had to make it for her. It has amazing texture and taste and we all enjoy it frequently when in season.
My pineapple dip is quite regular during warm season but this pineapple banana smoothie recipe is by far the best thing I discovered so far.
Its quick and easy and super rejuvenating.
Are Smoothies healthy?
Often times, it is thought that drinking nutrition is like eating too much of any food item. But that’s not true. Smoothies are a great way to hydrate and replenish. It’s a quick way to provide sufficient balanced nutrition to your body. However, it should be consumed in the right proportion.
On this note my vegan orange smoothie is an excellent breakfast.
Health benefits of pineapple
This fruit is loaded with antioxidants and helps in digestion because of its enzymes content. It also eases the symptoms of arthritis and boost immunity along with suppressing inflammation. Overall, it’s a healthy fruit and should be consumed when in season.
Health benefits of banana
It’s packed with iron and potassium along with magnesium. It’s a natural sweetener and works great as vegan egg also. It supports digestive health and heart health. Sometimes, it also aides in weight loss since it helps in feeling fuller and is fiber rich too.
Ingredients for vegan pineapple banana smoothie
Frozen pineapple chunks
Goji berries (optional)
Slivered almonds (optional)
I have used these handful of ingredients to make it simple and easy.
Pineapple – I used frozen chunks but you may use fresh chunks as well. If you love pineapples and want a really strong taste of it and then go up to 1 ½ cups of pineapple chunks in this recipe.
Banana – make sure to use banana with brown spots on its skin. I used banana as a sweetener here so make sure its ripe and sweet when you use it here.
Hempseeds – its packed with protein and fiber. I used hempseeds to add protein to this recipe in order to make it a post workout recovery drink as well.
Almond milk – unsweetened almond milk works great here because it keeps this beverage light and low in calories. However, any dairy free milk works here except coconut milk.

How to make Pineapple Banana Smoothie
Firstly, in a blender, I combined all the ingredients (except garnishing ingredients).
Secondly, I blended it absolutely smooth.
Next, I poured in in the serving glasses.
Then, I garnished them well and served immediately.
My family devoured it so much that they now want me to blend this frequently.
This tastes best when served immediately. If it sits for long time it will settle at the bottom of the glass. In that case simply stir it with a spoon and enjoy.
Both the fruits are great for digestion and packed with antioxidants along with being rich in fiber. Therefore, these fruits are great for weight loss if eaten in proportion.
Yes! It’s sweetened with fruits and blended with almond milk. I also added hempseeds to add protein to it. Hence, its very healthy, low in carbs and low in calories too.
