Whip up this easy 3-ingredient Pineapple Smoothie recipe and be whisked away to someplace tropical! Made with coconut milk, vanilla frozen yogurt, and frozen pineapple fruit, this drink is so delicious and refreshing. Perfect summer breakfast or afternoon snack!
I’ll always remember a few things about meeting my (now) husband – he wore these super cute tennis shoes, could recite movie lines like nobody’s business, loved dill pickle potato chips more than life itself, and could eat a pineapple like it was the last one ever to be grown on earth.
Not much has changed 15+ years later.
This pineapple smoothie is a constant during the summer months and is used as a bargaining chip when I need something. Lol.
I never used to buy pineapple that much. I think I always had it in my head that it’s just too much of a pain to deal with, and too expensive to buy already cut up. Until the OXO ratcheting pineapple slicer came into my life. (<< affiliate link.)
But I’ve also loved cutting it up and freezing the pieces for smoothies in the summertime.

What are the health benefits of Pineapple
Well, I’m so glad you asked! Pineapple is loaded with nutrients.
- This fruit is great for gut health, reducing bloat and calming down tummy problems.
- It’s hydrating, with a high water content of about 85-89 percent.
- Pineapple contains 20 milligrams of magnesium per cup, so it helps regulate blood pressure and can help you fall asleep at night.
- Another important nutrient pineapples contains is potassium (180 milligrams per cup), which is an important electrolyte that assists with muscle and kidney function.
- Because of pineapple’s high vitamin C, they’re also good for your immune system.
- And while not scientifically proven, I think eating pineapple makes you happy. HA!
This pineapple smoothie is so light and refreshing, perfect on a hot day. The only thing that would make this smoothie better is if you were drinking it in Hawaii!
