Easy Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are one of my favorite ways to incorporate fruit into my daily routine.

I mean, there really is no easier or more delicious way to eat fruit than by blending it up with milk into a creamy smoothie. 

This easy blueberry pineapple smoothie recipe is one of my favorites. It’s made with just three main ingredients: frozen blueberries, frozen pineapple, and coconut milk or coconut water.

It’s perfectly sweet with a slightly tropical flavor that’s so refreshing. 

Enjoy this smoothie with breakfast, whip it up in 5 minutes as an easy snack, or sip on it for a light dessert option!

This recipe makes a ton, so it’s great for sharing too!

This pineapple blueberry smoothie recipe is as easy it gets. Just a few minutes to the perfect easy breakfast.

  1.  Add all of your ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.

That’s it! Like I said, so incredibly easy! Once the smoothie is blended, just pour it into your favorite serving glasses and enjoy!

Tips and Notes

  • Adjust amounts as needed. This recipe yields four servings/56 ounces of smoothie. Feel free to adjust the amounts to suit your needs; just make sure you’re not trying to blend way too much at once.
  • Frozen fruit is key. I highly recommend both frozen pineapple and frozen blueberries. The frozen fruit makes it creamier and colder. Fresh fruit just doesn’t yield the same results. 
  • Use a high-speed blender. A high-powered blender makes the smoothie extra creamy with an extra smooth texture.
  • Coconut milk vs water: I’ve used both, with great results. The coconut milk will make it creamier, while the coconut water will result in a slightly thinner consistency.

Variations

  • Use another milk. I love the slightly tropical flavor of coconut in this recipe, but this smoothie will work great with any milk of choice. Try oat milk, hemp milk, or unsweetened almond milk. Alternatively, use dairy milk instead of plant milk. Whatever you prefer is fine. 
  • Make it creamier. Try blending in a scoop of plain Greek yogurt, vanilla Greek yogurt, or a plant-based yogurt to keep it vegan. 
  • Add greens. Turn it into a blueberry pineapple spinach smoothie with a handful of baby spinach. You can use other leafy greens too, but I find that spinach blends into smoothies the best. 
  • Make it a protein smoothie. Simply add a scoop of protein powder to make it a little more filling.

Serving Suggestions

This blueberry pineapple smoothie, like any smoothie, is perfect enjoyed on its own as a snack or as an easy breakfast.

It can also be blended with slightly less liquid to create a thicker consistency for a smoothie bowl! 

If you’re making a smoothie bowl, load it up with:

  • Shredded coconut
  • Slivered almonds
  • Nut butter
  • Chia seeds
  • Sliced banana

If you’re enjoying this smoothie with breakfast, here are a few pairing ideas:

Storage

I don’t recommend storing this smoothie. It is best fresh out of the blender! The longer at sits, the more watery it will get.

However, if you do happen to have leftovers, you can make them into smoothie popsicles for a sweet and refreshing treat later on.

Do Berries and Pineapple Go Together?

Heck yes they do! Blueberries and pineapple are a match made in heaven—especially in a smoothie.

The sweet flavor of the blueberries and the tangy, tart flavor of pineapple are rounded out deliciously by the flavor of coconut…it’s a flavor combination you’re going to love! 

Do Smoothies Need Milk or Water?

Usually milk! However, for this recipe I list an option for coconut water in place of the coconut milk. It still adds a subtle tropical flavor, but lightens the smoothie up just a little bit. 

I definitely don’t recommend using plain water for this smoothie. It will be far too diluted and watery.

How Do You Thicken a Fruit Smoothie?

The key to a thick and creamy fruit smoothie is to use frozen fruit. Fresh fruit just doesn’t give you that thick, creamy texture. 

Additionally, if you want to make sure your smoothie is extra thick, you can simply use less liquid.

If you’re unsure, I recommend starting with less, then adding small amounts as needed until you reach your preferred consistency.
