I apologize for the pictures in advance.
The smoothie was in the process of being eaten when I took the pictures so I could not be bothered with stopping to make them look nice!
It’s a weakness.
Anyways, I found a recipe on Pinterest that was pretty similar to this but I changed it to make it taste like the Pineapple Delight smoothie from Tropical Smoothie. It worked! This tastes almost identical and is smaller portioned!
You’ll need a big blender for this because I tried my smaller one and ended up blending the ingredients in thirds. Messy and not fun!
This recipe could probably serve up to 4, so look for my tips at the end!
1 15 oz. can pineapple, diced–juice and pineapple
1/3 c. plain Greek yogurt
1 ripe banana
1-2 packets Splenda, optional
4-5 c. ice–you’ll have to experiment with this. I started with 1/2 c. and probably ended up with about 5 for the whole recipe-honestly!
In a blender, mix together the can of pineapple and juice with the yogurt. Add the banana in chunks with the Splenda. Lastly, add the ice and blend until there’s no big chucks or it will be really hard to sip up a straw!
That’s it! Serve and enjoy.
This is how the consistency should look. Thick but not too icy!
And if you have a ton of leftovers…
Just put them in some small zippies in serving size portions. Store them in the freezer and when you’re ready to use them, run them under cold water and then blend until icy again. You may have to add more ice.
This recipe is also super healthy for you. Pineapple and banana equals double score on health benefits!
Let me know what you guys think!
