Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie
Smoothies are a great way to refresh our bodies, please our appetite, and get in some extra fruits and veggies. My girls and I love smoothies and this Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie is our newest favorite.
My husband loves all the baked goods, but he’s not a smoothie kind of guy. His go-to fruit is apples and salad is his number one veggie. He likes to eat his food, while the girls and I don’t mind sipping on ours – especially when it’s loaded with yummy sweet fruits like strawberries and pineapple.
The other day my daughter told me she wanted to go to Disneyland just so she could have a Dole Whipped cup. For those of you not familiar, its basically pineapple heaven in a cup.
They blend frozen pineapple with a couple other ingredients to make a smooth, yummy, soft-serve-like dessert. A trip to Disneyland takes time, money, and planning. We can’t just hop down so of course I looked up the copy cat recipe on the internet.
While I didn’t end up making the dole whipped cup I did make this strawberry pineapple smoothie, which is equally tasty.
When I first was making this smoothie I only whipped up the pineapple, but it needed something more. We wanted more than just pineapple… it needed STRAWBERRIES! Both of us love strawberries (who doesn’t?) and we have tons of ripe strawberries in our garden right now. I ran out and picked a few and threw everything into my Blendtec blender.
It was super amazing. The next day I froze pineapple chunks and tossed those plus strawberries into our blender again. You wouldn’t believe how smooth and delicious it was. Just two ingredients and WOW, this strawberry pineapple smoothie knocked our socks off. And it was so smooth and creamy.

I’m super excited for you to try this easy, healthy, delicious strawberry pineapple smoothie. Make sure to use ripe fruits, and if possible, fresh fruit. You can use canned pineapple for this recipe, just be sure to drain the juice from the can before you freeze your pineapple chunks. We like to reserve the juice to add to smoothies or my oldest drinks it straight up.
