There is nothing better than a good and creamy Pineapple Berry Smoothie! It is filling and packed with vitamins and nutrients that provide so many health benefits. From improving digestion to lowering cholesterol & blood pressure, boosting your immune system and preventing early ageing, tooth decaying & cancer, this smoothie does it all! And do you agree that the taste and smell of fresh pineapple, strawberries and raspberries are just fantastic?

We came back from our Mexico vacation two weeks ago but I already miss having their juicy, sweet and aromatic pineapples every day.  Yes, I know, the best pineapples are grown in Hawaii and Costa Rica (still on my travel wish list) but still! Oh and something interesting you might not know about pineapples… did you know that you can cut off the top of the pineapple (the leafy part), let it dry for several days , put it in a glass of water and once you start seeing nice and long roots (after a few weeks) you can plant it in a pot? How awesome is that?!

And did I mention how jealous I am that in so many places the strawberry season has already started… it just feels like it’s started everywhere but Canada! I can’t wait for the berry season to begin around here so I can pick my own strawberries (and later on raspberries) as I always do every year. If you’re one of the lucky ones who can get fresh strawberries check out some of my favourite recipes for Strawberry Smoothie, Strawberry Ice Cream, Strawberry Jam  and, la pièce de résistance, Vanilla Mousse Cake with Strawberry Jelly

Time:  5 min, Prep: 5 min.
Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple, cut into chunks & half of them frozen
  • 1 cup (150 g) frozen strawberries,
  • 1 cup (150 g) frozen raspberries
  • 3 scoops frozen vanilla yogurt

I prefer freezing the fruits rather than adding ice cubes, the smoothies are better and more filling this way!

    I have changed my eating habitsdrastically since Jan, 2014. I neer felt better. I am a tad bit late getting on the smoothie band wagon because all I ever find arerecipes that requie using YOGURT. I take probioticsin different form, knowing it is good for you. However this looks so delicious and would love to make it. Do you by any chance or anyone know of a substitute for yogurt..I just cannot stand the taste. Makes me cringe.

    • Roxy says

      Smoothies are great for you as they are packed with vitamins and nutrients! You can try substituting the yogurt with ice cream if you like it… or even some milk would work but the consistency will change a bit.

    This looks so good! It would be like pineapple then BOOM berry. I’m stopping by from the loving link up. I’m a new follower through Twitter. I hope your having a great Wednesday!

    Can you use canned pineapple instead of fresh. I realize fresh would be sooooo much better but I was just wondering if nutritionally it would make a difference.

    • Roxy says

      Hi Becky, You can definitely use canned pineapple. There is usually a higher content of sugar in the canned pineapple compared to the fresh one but on the other hand, the canned fruit is usually higher in carbs because it’s packed in fruit juice :).

      • Sheila Duplanty says

        I am questioning the freezing of only one half of the pineapple. Do you use the other half that is not frozen in the smoothie?

        • Roxy says

          Yes, I use the other half that is not frozen as well… except a few slices that I use to decorate. You can freeze everything if you want, it’s just a matter of personal preference when it comes to the final texture of the smoothie.

    This looks so good–especially since we’re already having hot weather. I love the tip about using frozen fruit instead of ice cubes–will have to remember that! Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle Sunday! :)

    • Roxy says

      I’m glad you like it, Dee! The taste is so much better when using frozen fruit, not watered down or icy at all!

  5. says

    I love smoothies but I don’t use my blender often. This makes me want to take it out of the box again. It’s a beautiful blend and looks refreshing.
