Strawberry Banana Smoothie

I’m a smoothie girl. I could eat one everyday, especially when they are as good as this Aloha Pineapple Smoothie! I still have yet to go to Hawaii but this Aloha Pineapple Smoothie is what I imagine it will be like – refreshing, sweet, a little creamy, and beautiful. Like most smoothie recipes, this is so simple and has my two favorite ingredients I love in all smoothies – strawberries and bananas!!

This Aloha Pineapple Smoothie has just 6 simple  ingredients- pineapple, strawberries, banana, yogurt, ice, and juice. I have a basic formula for making smoothies. Every smoothie I make has a banana. This provides the main sweetness to the smoothie. The riper the banana, the sweeter, the better!

I also always add low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt. This makes it creamy but is way healthier than ice cream or frozen yogurt and adds a lot of protein. We keep a huge container of it in our fridge at all times for our smoothies.

You don’t always have to use ice in your smoothies but it helps thicken it if  you’re using fresh fruit. If using frozen fruit you can decrease the ice or eliminate it all together.

The next part of the formula, the main ingredient, is the fruit. I usually use 2 cups of fruit for every one cup of yogurt. You can really use any fruit combo you want or have on hand. In the case of this Aloha Pineapple Smoothie we’re using pineapple and strawberries. These two fruits are awesome for smoothies because both are really sweet, not tart like some other berries can be.

For the final touch I add some sort of liquid to achieve a desired thickness. Most often I use apple juice because that’s what I have on hand but you can use any kind of juice. Or, if you want more protein/calcium you can add milk. The juice will add a little more sweetness so that’s why I like it.
