This pineapple orange smoothie is one of my kids’ favorite smoothies.
My daughter and I love this with a banana or two added, but my other daughter and son prefer it with no banana. Either way though, this is a smoothie we make and enjoy all the time.
This is also a smoothie that we love to freeze and use throughout the week.

I was seeking green smoothie inpsirationg this morning, Lynn. I think I’ll make a dairy-free verison of your recipe using coconut milk instead of yogurt, with the banana, and then add in a handful of mixed greens. 🙂
@Shirley @ gfe, Oh greens would probably be good in this. I think they might go well with the strong citrus flavor. And I am sure coconut milk would work well also.

These sound great! I just read the title out loud and even my picky breakfast guy got excited! Thanks for the idea and recipe. 🙂
@Amy @ MomsToolbox, My kids love these because they are so basic. Nothing weird in these smoothies. 🙂 But they are still healthy.

A touch of lime would work with this one, though kids might not like it as well. I’ll bet it would also make a delicious popsicle if frozen!
Question: If my blender/Magic bullet do not seem to effectively chop up all the ice when mixed with the ingredients, do you think I should try blending the ice BEFORE adding the other ingredients for better consistency?
@Courtney S., Yes you might try that and see if it helps or use less ice and see if it will chop up a smaller amount better. I hope that helps.
I like the idea, but why does this sound like sugar attack? All the ingredients except for ice have massive amounts of sugar in it. Hail to the diabetes epidemic!
I was surprised that this recipe had juices. When I first read the name, I thought it would either have orange slices or pineapple chunks. Not the juices from them. In fact I think I will make it out of mandarin oranges, and pineapple chunks, and put almond milk, and bananas, yogurt (vanilla), and leave the honey or sweetner out.
