Pineapple Orange Banana Smoothie

This Pineapple Orange Banana Smoothie was inspired by my favorite flavor of juice from childhood. It’s hard to get enough of this tasty combination and it’s not surprising that kids absolutely love this one! This smoothie has plenty of fiber and servings of fruit. It’s gluten-free with dairy-free options as well.

Pineapple Orange Banana was my favorite juice flavor as a kid. But we’re more nutrition savvy these days, and juice is no longer the breakfast staple it once was. Enter the smoothie… complete with all the fiber and packed with vitamins and minerals!

I don’t have anything against juice necessarily; it is rather tasty. But now that I know there are better options, I tend to steer clear of it (except for fresh-pressed juices). Regular store-bought juice is essentially liquid fruit sugar. And because it’s been pasteurized, you’re missing many of the live enzymes, vitamins, and minerals.

The great thing about smoothies is they’re much easier to make than making your own juice first thing in the morning. We try to make a couple of green juices at home every week. But I always rely on smoothies to get plenty of fruits & veggies from day to day.

So, if you’re not feeling like a green smoothie first thing, give this one a try. The tropical flavor is bound to pick up your winter blues!

Although I do like to make this recipe sometimes with a green spin on it. So if you want to add some greens, try out my Pineapple Orange Banana Green Smoothie recipe.

Ingredients for this Pineapple Orange Banana Smoothie

Frozen pineapple chunks, vanilla extract, yogurt, an orange and two bananas in bowls on a wood cutting board.
  • Pineapple – Fresh or frozen works best here, although I have used canned pineapple chunks once, which were ok, I don’t recommend them as a great option. Canned pineapple has a flat flavor that doesn’t work well in fresh-tasting smoothies.
  • Orange – Whatever is most flavorful is what I’d recommend here from the classic navel oranges to Cara Cara and Mandarins/tangerines are great too!
  • Banana – Again fresh or frozen works great here.
  • Yogurt – Any yogurt you love will work in this recipe. I go back and forth between Greek yogurt and coconut yogurt.
  • Extras – A touch of vanilla is delicious and blending in a few handfuls of spinach or kale makes this a super tasty green smoothie! Also, check out my Superfood Smoothies for more ideas about what you can add to your smoothie. Another favorite of mine is to add any type of protein powder you like, I usually go with a couple of scoops of collagen powder.
Peeling the orange with bowls of pineapple, yogurt, and vanilla on the side.

Step 1: Prep the fruit. Peel the orange and bananas, then break them up into smaller chunks.

If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you’ll need to make sure everything is in smaller pieces.

Adding the smoothie ingredients to the blender container.

Step 2: Add the fruit to the blender with the frozen fruit on top.

If your blender isn’t high-powered, add the yogurt on the bottom with the juicier not frozen fruit to make it easier for your blender.

Blending the smoothie in the blender container.

Step 3: Blend the smoothie until smooth, about 1 minute for a high-powered blender.

Ways to serve this

Storing leftovers

  • To store – this smoothie is best right away because the banana flavor will continue to get stronger. You can refrigerate any extras for up to 1 day.
  • Make ahead – rather than making the smoothie ahead, I recommend making freezer smoothie packs to speed up your prep time. Also, you can prep your pineapple and oranges 1-2 days ahead. If your fruit is ready to go, it only takes minutes to blend a smoothie.

If you have frozen pineapples and frozen bananas try adding a little orange juice to help get the mixture moving in the blender.

    Idk if I should really be rating this recipe bc I had to modify it. I only had one large banana, about a cupful of frozen pineapple, no OJ so I used two smaller oranges and instead of squeezing them I just took the peels off, separated them and tossed them in. I used about 1/2 cup unflavored yogurt and 1/2+ cup unflavored almond milk, a handful of ice cubes, 1 tbsp of flax/chia mix, a small handful of walnuts, and 2 scoops of collagen protein powder. I mixed it all in my Ninja blender and ohhhhh… so delightful! I have tried others recipes and love yours the best! I try to have one low cal smoothie a day that’s quick and easy to make and I think I’ve lost a few pounds since I started drinking smoothies! When I made these recipes it was enough for two tall glasses, so I share them with my grandson who loves them too! Thank you for this and all your delicious recipes!

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed this one and the other recipes you mentioned! And thank you for taking the time to write what you did, it’s so helpful and it sounds like your smoothie was packed with extra nutrition!

    This smoothie was great! I added another half of an orange and it was *chefs kiss* . It does make enough for 2 smoothies so i was wondering how i could make less of it. Should i just cut the recipe in half?

    • I’m not sure what you mean by ‘preserved’ but if you mean canning I don’t think this recipe would work for that, especially because it contains yogurt. There are a couple of options for keeping this longer though, you can freeze the smoothie (it tastes pretty good, but not quite the same as fresh) or you can make freezer smoothie packs, (I linked to my post below on how to make those) in individual servings so that you can make smaller amounts of smoothie at one time. I hope this helps, and be sure to let me know if you have anymore questions!
