Pineapples are amazing super-foods because they are jam packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Pineapple smoothies are very potent and do not normally need any added sugars or flavors to taste amazingly refreshing! Incorporating the more mellow taste of the banana will add a beautiful balance to the flavors for the perfect mixture.

Ingredients:

1 to 1½ Cups of Frozen Pineapple

1 Cut Banana

Full Single Serving of Oikos Light Yogurt 

- Choice of Pineapple, Orange, or Vanilla Flavor

Splash of Orange Juice 

All you have to do is blend it all together until smooth for the perfect summer drink! The more liquid you put in, the thinner the consistency will be. If you want a thicker smoothie for a Smoothie Bowl base, use very little liquid and avoid over blending. Garnish the drink with a pineapple cube and you are good to go! 

Add on Ingredients:


1 Tablespoon of Ground Flax Seeds 

1 Cup of Spinach - This will not have any effect on the taste of your smoothie and is a great option to add in some veggie goodness

This recipe is great for those who love smoothies that pack a powerful and unique taste. Lemons are great for your digestive system and even promote weight loss. Limes are very similar in properties, but also are great for overall skin health and rejuvenation. Incorporating the both into a daily routine may be a great way to see changes in your body at a faster rate. For something a little less conventional and definitely refreshing, check out the Lemon-Lime Twister. 

Ingredients:

½ Lime - De-seeded and Peeled

½ Lemon - De-seeded and Peeled

1½ Bananas Frozen 

Orange Juice 

Full Single Serving of Oikos Light Yogurt 

- Lime or Orange

Any Leafy Green like Spinach or Kale 

1 Tablespoon Ground Flax Seeds

Once again, it’s one easy blend and done! This is a unique smoothie that might be a nice change from your basic strawberry banana taste and force you to experiment a little more with your flavors. 


Most importantly, take the time at home to experiments and throw different flavors together to perfect your smoothie craft! You don’t have to always follow a recipe and can try tossing in what you already have around the house. Making smoothies should be a fun way to start you day and hopefully increase your motivation to stay on track!

Happy Blending!
