Pineapple banana smoothie

10 min
It takes just a few minutes to make a delicious pineapple and banana smoothie that you can enjoy exactly when you need it. Every sip bursts with refreshing flavours as you indulge in a sweet, tropical beverage that takes you to the summer island of your dreams. This creamy treat can be served to kids and adults for a fresh boost of exotic goodness.


  • Place buttermilk, pineapple, and banana in a blender and mix at the fastest speed for about 30 seconds or until smooth.
  • Pour the smoothie into two cold glasses and serve immediately.

Choose a ripe banana for the most pronounced flavour experience. If you have overripe bananas, these are also great in a smoothie, providing extra sweetness. If you prefer a creamier, thicker texture, try using a frozen banana instead of a fresh one.


If you use fresh fruits, you can still add ice cubes to smoothen the texture and balance the intensity of the fruity flavours.

Quick and easy pineapple banana smoothie

With just three ingredients, you can whip up a quick and easy pineapple banana smoothie in no time. The buttermilk ensures a smooth and creamy consistency, just like a smoothie should be. It also brings a slightly tangy and tart flavour that complements the sweetness of the banana and pineapple very well. This recipe brings a tropical flavour boost to your breakfast, lunch, afternoon, or whenever you are in the mood for something sweet and refreshing.

A delicious combination of sweet and tangy

The blend of pineapple, banana, and buttermilk offers a delightful balance of sweet and tangy flavours. The pineapple imparts a tropical feel, and the banana ensures the smoothie remains sweet and creamy. The buttermilk contributes a drinkable consistency and a slight tang to balance the sweet fruits.

Experiment with coconut and berries

If you want to dive deeper into the tropical smoothie goodness, you can try ingredients such as coconut and berries. You can either go for coconut milk or shredded coconut if you want to keep the creamy texture but want to add the desired exotic touch. You can substitute some of the buttermilk with coconut milk.

Berries will infuse your pineapple banana smoothie with beautiful colours and new, different layers of sweetness. Toss in a handful of your favourite mixed berries and see your smoothie change colour and offer new flavour notes. Strawberry will bring a strong sweetness, while blueberry and raspberry have a slightly tangier flavour. Choose fresh berries for stronger flavours and frozen ones for a cold, smooth, and creamy texture.
