What’s in this smoothie?

  • Pineapple (fresh or frozen): This wonderful tropical fruit that has scrumptious sweet and tart flavours and is a good source of vitamins C, B1, manganese, and dietary fiber.
    • In this recipe, I used frozen sweet pineapple. I always buy a bag of frozen pineapple chunks from the supermarket to make smoothies as it’s one of my favourite fruits.
    • If you want to use fresh pineapple, pick one that’s firm, heavy for its size, and smells sweet at its stem.
  • Fresh Lemon Juice: Bright flavours that brings zing to this smoothie. It’s perfect for breakfast to help you wake up!
    • Add in the lemon zest if you like for added lemon-ness, but it may also give off a hint of bitterness as well.
  • Bananas (fresh or frozen): This fruit adds more natural sweetness and is rich in fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.
    • I used a frozen one, but a fresh banana would work in this recipe too.
  • Greek yogurt: Creamy, thick Greek yogurt has a tangy taste and is a good source of protein too.
  • Unsweetened almond milk: My go-to non-dairy milk. It has a creamy texture and slightly nutty flavour that I like. Use any type of milk you prefer.
  • Pure Honey: The distinct rich sweetness of honey compliments the fruits in this drink.
  • Ground Turmeric (optional): This golden-yellow spice is lightly aromatic and is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It gives the smoothie a light yellow colour.
  • Ice: Only necessary if you are using both fresh pineapple and banana and would like a slightly thicker smoothie texture.

Overall, this smoothie is:

  • Delicious and flavourful: Yummy sweet, tart, zesty, and sour notes in this smoothie that’ll put some pep to your step! This smoothie has a creamy texture that’s pleasing to the palate too.
  • Refreshing and cool: Perfect to enjoy on a hot day.
  • Full of nutritious benefits.
  • Simple and quick to make: It takes about 5 minutes to make. Simply place all the ingredients in the blender and combined until smooth.
  • Great to make for a quick breakfast or snack: Fill up a travel cup to take it with you on-the-go.
  • Gluten-free too.
