about this recipe
This drink is rich in vitamins and nutrients that will help you stay hydrated and energized throughout the day. It is easy and very quick to make, and the best part is that you can make it with frozen pineapple and canned coconut milk or coconut water.
Pineapple smoothie ingredients
- Pineapple. Use fresh pineapple or frozen pineapple. When there is fresh pineapple in the house, I like to store some in the refrigerator and freeze the rest. This way, I am always prepared to make a smoothie or juice. You can also use already-cut frozen pineapple.
- Coconut water. Use coconut water, coconut milk, or coconut cream. If you use coconut cream, add one cup of water.
- Greens. Add a handful of spinach, avocado, or kale. The idea is to have more and more nutrients. Leafy greens are always best.
Tips for buying the best coconut water
Read the label: As with any food product, it is important to read the label on the bottle of coconut water for ingredients and nutritional information. Make sure it does not contain added sugars or other artificial additives.
Look for 100% natural coconut water: The best option is to buy 100% natural coconut water, which does not contain additives or preservatives. These options often come in glass containers and can be more expensive, but they are worth it for their quality.
Check the expiration date: Be sure to check the expiration date on the bottle before purchasing. Natural coconut water has a limited shelf life and can spoil quickly if stored incorrectly.
Choose organic coconut water: If possible, choose organic coconut water. This means that sustainable farming practices have been used, and no toxic pesticides or herbicides have been used.
How to make the best smoothie
Put all the ingredients in the blender and let it run until everything is smooth. It is best to start by adding the liquid and then the rest of the ingredients.
Using a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix) for this pineapple smoothie is best. If you don’t have one, strain the smoothie before serving it with a medium strainer.
Add vegan protein
- Add vegetable protein powder to this vanilla-flavored smoothie.
- You can also add hemp or walnut seeds.
- Add vegan Greek yogurt; look for vegan coconut or almond yogurt.
