Creamy Pineapple Smoothie

A creamy smoothie made with pineapple, pineapple juice, and Greek yogurt. 

Creamy Pineapple Smoothie

It’s Crazy Cooking Challenge time again. For those who may not know it is a monthly challenge hosted Tina from Mom’s Crazy Cooking  where the participants are assigned a general food such as chocolate chip cookies and are to find a recipe from another blog and make and blog it.

This month I had the hardest time finding a recipe to make. I have this weird habit when it comes to yogurt. While it’s one of my favorite things to eat I don’t really like it in anything. Just give me the yogurt and a spoon and I’m a happy camper.

After seeing the Sunny Hawaiian Smoothie on Daily Dish Recipes I knew I was going to set my quirk aside because I love pineapple. The only planned change I made was omitting the bananas because I find the flavor to be overpowering in a smoothie.  Nicole’s original recipe called for crushed pineapple and orange juice but I grabbed pineapple chunks in juice. That turned out to be a good thing since the o.j. I thought was in the freezer wasn’t there.

I used Greek yogurt for the very first time in this smoothie. I was able to find yogurt with pineapple in it but if you can’t vanilla will work.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks in juice , drained- reserve the juice
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 6-8 ounces pineapple or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 or 2 frozen bananas , sliced I didn't add these to mine
  • Ice , as desired for thickness
  • To taste sugar or honey

Instructions

  1. Combine the pineapple, juice, bananas and yogurt in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Add ice, a little at a time, blending until desired thickness is achieved. I used about a cup. Add a little sugar or honey for sweetness if needed

 

Final verdict: It was awesome. The flavors were perfect, the yogurt lent a slight tanginess in the background and I loved the creaminess it added. I will definitely make this again.
