A blueberry and pineapple smoothie that packs a vitamin punch and is delicious for a quick breakfast or a post-workout treat.
This three-ingredient blueberry and pineapple smoothie is a breeze to make and it’s so refreshing after a workout. You can use fresh or frozen fruit to make it — I like to mix it up depending on the weather. You’ll get the same great taste with both, but I prefer the frozen version in the summer.
To make the smoothie, you’ll need a blender. I use a Ninja blender but any powerful blender would do. I tried it in a personal blender too, but at 200W, you could still feel some pineapple chunks.
Unlike other smoothies I like to make, such as this banana oat smoothie, this one contains only three ingredients, so it’s easy to make on those mornings you don’t want anything complicated.
Use oat milk instead of orange juice for this blueberry and pineapple smoothie
Most of the smoothie recipes out there that involve pineapple ask for orange juice, which is very nice, but makes the entire thing a bit too acidic for my liking. Plus, smoothies made with orange juice might also be too sweet, something to watch out for if you’re trying to cut down on sugar.
For this recipe, I used oat milk instead of orange juice. I have also tried to make pineapple smoothie with almond milk, but I liked the oat milk version better because it’s a bit more creamy and the overall taste is simply delicious.
A tip I have for this recipe is to use high-quality oat milk, preferably an organic version if you can find it. I tested the same recipe with Oatly and Alpro oat milk, and the Oatly version was so much better. This oat milk is not only organic but also gluten and dairy-free.
- 150 grams pineapple chunks, fresh or frozen
- 75 grams blueberries, fresh or frozen
- 250 ml oat milk, I used Oatly, but whichever oat milk you prefer is fine
- Put all ingredients in the blender starting with the frozen fruit.
- Use the "Smoothie" function of the blender or blend manually for 1 minute.
