Ingredients

  • Fresh oranges are the star of this smoothie. I recommend using whole peeled oranges or orange segments as opposed to just using orange juice. Save the orange peels and use them to make this Orange Tea recipe!
  • Frozen pineapple chunks make the smoothie thick and tropical-flavored. Not to mention, pineapple contains bromelain which can improve digestion. Look for a bag at in the freezer section of your grocery store.
  • Coconut milk acts as the base of this smoothie. You can use either full-fat canned coconut milk, light coconut milk or even coconut beverage (which comes in a box). Or, for a low calorie diet, you can use almond milk instead.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Gather up your ingredients, including frozen pineapple chunks, coconut milk, and an orange.

You can use fresh pineapple, but then you’ll need to add about 1/2 cup of ice cubes to make the drink cold.

Once you have your ingredients, it’s time to blend them up!

Ideally, you would have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix to ensure that the drink gets very creamy and fully blended.

Please see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Once you’ve blended your Pineapple Orange Smoothie, then you can serve it right out of the blender.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use fresh pineapple instead of frozen pineapple?

Yes, but then you’ll also need to add about 1/2 cup of ice cubes so the smoothie is cold.

Can I use coconut beverage instead of coconut milk?

Yes, but it won’t be as filling.

Can I add protein powder to make it a meal?

Yes, absolutely! I would suggest using an unsweetened version of protein powder, otherwise your smoothie will be too sweet.
