Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie

I’m always looking for quick and healthy breakfasts, and smoothies are on that shortlist. Mornings are not made for cooking, so this simple Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie recipe sounded like it was made for me. Four ingredients, a blender, a glass, and a straw are all that’s needed, and the straw really isn’t a requirement. Perfection for my groggy morning self!

The Ingredients

As I mentioned, 4 whole ingredients go into this strawberry pineapple smoothie recipe. I love the fact that the fruit is frozen, so I can keep it on hand for a while. Yes, the oranges/orange juice and yogurt (vanilla, by the way) have a much shorter shelf life, but they keep pretty well in the refrigerator.

The Process

I had my Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie blended in 5 minutes. Well, technically 2 1/2 smoothies—this recipe makes a lot. The only negative I have about this recipe happened during blending, and my blender is literally made for making smoothies ?

The mixture seemed okay at first but the blender just couldn’t handle the strawberries. I had to remove the top and stir a few times, and the motor was making a different noise than usual by the time I finished. My blender is fine, but next time I’ll thaw the strawberries under some running water so they aren’t as hard to blend.

Update: When I reshot the photos for this post, I halved the recipe. This time, it blended up easily and gave me a generous serving.

The verdict? This is the BEST smoothie recipe I have ever tried!! I grabbed my husband to give it a try as he was heading out the door. He ended up finishing the whole thing and requesting one when he got home. I think it rivals the local smoothie joint we like; he said it's better. We both agreed it wasn't too sweet and liked that we could taste the strawberries and pineapple. You need to try this smoothie recipe!
