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.
When I make a half batch of this smoothie, I cut all the ingredients in half except the orange.

    Tweaked a little bit and lessened most ingredients, minus the yogurt, plus chai seeds, green tea extract, unflavored protein powder, kale, spinach, and Almost/coconut milk. One of the best green smoothies ever.

    • Frozen pineapple will work perfectly, the smoothie might be a little thicker, but other than that you’re good to go!

    • You can definitely add any kind of protein powder you like the flavor of, protein powder can sometimes give a smoothie a weird flavor, but if you have a brand you already enjoy you’ll be fine. I hope you enjoy the smoothie, and be sure to let me know if you have anymore questions!

  2. Really love the recipe, I haven try it yet, but for sure I’ll make it today, I was just wondering can I use canned pineapple? And thanks againg for your recipes.

    • You could use canned pineapple but it will really effect the flavor, fresh pineapple is much brighter in taste and has about double the flavor of canned. You can also look for frozen pineapple chunks which would be a little closer to fresh. Hope you enjoy the recipe, and be sure to let me know if you have anymore questions!

    I’m hoping to include this delicious smoothie recipe in a preschool cookbook we’re making (not for sale – just for parents). We just installed a new garden (hooray!) and are celebrating with a healthy foods for little people cookbook. We have a “10 things to do with oranges/apples/spinach/bananas etc. pages” and we wanted to include this with our oranges page! Any chance you could email me a higher resolution photo of this smoothie? The image from this site is too small. If you’d rather not have this is a cookbook – totally fine. We DO credit you and your website after the recipe. Thanks!

    • That would be fine if you’d like to use the recipe in your preschool cookbook, I love the idea of celebrating healthy foods for little people! I’ll send you a photo, and I hope you (and your parent group) enjoy this smoothie recipe!

  4. I don’t drink juice anymore because of the sugar, but you just made my day with this recipe.
    I get these cravings for something cold and refreshing and this hits the spot!

  5. “Regular store bought juice is essentially liquid fruit sugar” amen to that my friend. I try to explain this to my friends but they don’t seem to grasp the concept.
    They think that store bought juice is the same as fresh pressed juice. They just don’t get it….
    Anyways this is a great smoothie Kari, I’m loving that you mixed pineapple with orange, such a great combo!

    • There are so many of the concepts that we all grew up with, all the while thinking it was a ‘healthy start’ to the day! I love that there’s so much information getting out there now about the benefits of eating real, whole foods! 🙂

  6. You have won me over with the color of this smoothie! That orange/banana/pineapple combo is gorgeous smoothie style. I’m a total freak when it comes to juice, I won’t let my kids touch it with a 10 foot pole (store bought kind) so my neighbors think I’m a total wacko. They offered my kids a Capri Sun the other day and one of those Hugs drinks (100% refined sugar) and I was like, um, I can’t let them drink that! I know I’m insane, but I just can’t do it. Your smoothie tastes so much better and have all the vitamins and minerals I’m looking for. Thanks =)

    • Let them think you’re crazy, your kids will thanks you later when they grow into strong healthy adults! The funny thing is, even with all the processed food out there it seems like kids will still gravitate to the healthy choices if it’s offered – my nieces and nephews love fresh fruits and veggies, and smoothies are always a hit! 🙂
