I whipped this up on the spur of the moment, having no idea it would taste this good! I used fresh blueberries and canned pineapple. I am sure it would taste just as good using frozen blueberries and fresh pineapple. The first time I made this smoothie, the intense color about knocked my socks off! My husband and I love this smoothie and I hope you will enjoy it too!
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 (6 ounce) container vanilla yogurt
- 1⁄3 cup canned pineapple chunk (reserve juice)
- 1⁄3 cup pineapple juice (saved from can)
- Put all ingredients in blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Serve immediately.
- Serves 1.
I doubled the recipe and served it for breakfast for the two of us. I used fresh pineapple, and frozen blueberries. I also used plain low-fat yogurt, and added two servings of vanilla hemp protein powder. As the pineapple was fresh, I didn't have juice, so I added some orange juice instead. It was delicious (and perfectly sweet), and will definitely become a staple in our house!
My son suggested I "make him a pineapple smoothie for him" (nice, huh?) since we had pineapple in the fridge. I had the Food.com web site open on my phone's browser so I just typed it in. He saw this one and said "That one sounds good!" Threw it together with some blueberry yogurt in the nutribullet and he was a happy kid! The only down side is the pineapple fibers and blueberry skins get caught on the blades. But my boy went to school with a nutritious drink so I'm good. Next time I'll add a little protein powder.
Great drink, although I used unsweetened yogurt with maple. 5 Stars!
