Well, well, well… Summer is almost here! I don’t know about you, but when it’s hot outside, I enjoy a cold fruit smoothie for breakfast or a snack.  Thick, cold and creamy, and full of flavor, this coconut pineapple smoothie with only 4 ingredients is a personal favorite of mine!

One of the other COOL things about this smoothie is that it can also be FROZEN, to enjoy later in the day as a frozen (like ice cream) treat. YUMMO. You can read about that further down in this post.  Here’s how to make this delicious smoothie:

What’s IN This Smoothie?

This coconut pineapple smoothie only has 4 basic ingredients, plus an optional garnish. They are: frozen pineapple chunks, a frozen banana, coconut-flavored Greek yogurt, and milk. I love to use refrigerated coconut milk (not the canned kind), but any milk that you enjoy or have on hand will do the trick.

Ingredients for the smoothie are yogurt, pineapple, banana and milk.

Let’s Get This Blending Party Started

Making the smoothie is a cinch. We ALL KNOW it is not rocket science to make a smoothie, but here’s what ya need to do. Pour the milk into a blender. Add the frozen pineapple chunks, coconut yogurt and banana (peeled and still frozen). By using frozen banana and pineapple, you will NOT need to add ice (which could water down the drink a bit).

Mix on high speed (pulsing if needed), until the mixture is completely blended, creamy and smooth. TIP: You may need to stop the blender and scrape down the sides a couple of times to make sure the ingredients fully combine. This usually takes only 1-2 minutes. Once fully blended, your coconut pineapple smoothie is ready to serve.

All four ingredients are placed in a blender, and mixed until smooth.Once the ingredients are fully blended, the coconut pineapple smoothie is ready.

Ready To Serve The Coconut Pineapple Smoothie!

The recipe will make enough for two medium sized servings, but if you’re really hungry, then by all means go for it, and make it one huge smoothie! It will be really cold, due to the addition of that frozen pineapple and banana.

Here is a coconut pineapple smoothie, served with a straw.

One of my FAVORITE ways to enjoy this smoothie is to add a small pinch of ground cinnamon to the top of the drink before serving. I love the little hint of cinnamon flavor. This is absolutely optional, but I highly recommend it, because it looks good and tastes good.

You Can Freeze The Coconut Pineapple Smoothie, Too!

Another way I enjoy this, is to only drink half of the finished smoothie. Then I take the other serving and place it in a sealed freezer-safe container and place it in the freezer for 1 hour or more. This will become an amazing afternoon snack!

Once it has frozen most of the way through, remove it from the freezer, grab a spoon and dig in. It will “feel” like you are eating coconut pineapple ice cream. When partially frozen, it will have the texture of thick frozen yogurt. Leave it in the freezer longer than a couple hours, and it will become very firm, so you need to let it sit out for 10 minutes or so to soften it up before scooping.

Freezing a portion of the smoothie is a great way to enjoy it in another form, like ice cream You can also freeze it for another day, then let it defrost to drinking consistency, and enjoy round #2 of the smoothie as a beverage.

The smoothie can also be frozen to be eaten later like ice cream.After freezing for an hour, the smoothie "ice cream" is ready to scoop and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy this delicious fruit smoothie recipe, perfect for any time of the day, or any time of the year! Thanks for stopping by. Take care, and have a wonderful day, full of love, hope, and joy.
