If you enjoyed this pineapple smoothie, then you will also love this pineapple with melon smoothie!
You might remember I explained in this pumpkin spice smoothie post, three different ways I mix my smoothies; dairy-free, with yogurt or protein powder. I alter the combination just to vary the routine.
I use a mix of fruits; strawberries, blueberries, blackberries in different combinations, and often with bananas and spinach, but I saw a cantaloupe and pineapple smoothie duo on Roti n Rice‘s site and I couldn’t wait to try it!
This was immediately blended up after my local radio station woke me up to Hawaiian themed music!
I made it with a scoop of vanilla protein powder, adding about 20 grams of protein to the mix.
It’s a refreshing beverage!
How To Thicken Smoothies
I like the thicker consistency that frozen fruit adds to smoothies, so I often combine fresh and freshly frozen fruit.
If you haven’t cut your own fresh pineapple, check out this How To Cut Pineapple post. You’ll learn step by step how to make rings and chunks.
The pineapple chunks can be placed on a baking sheet in a single layer and placed in the freezer for at least an hour prior to putting in freezer bags.
You can also thicken it up with a couple of cubes of ice if you are using all fresh fruit.
