A pineapple smoothie recipe can also contain a lot more than just the few ingredients mentioned so far. Starting with the vanilla yogurt base, one can add as many fruit combinations as they want. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, apples, oranges, plums, pears, grapes, kiwi, and watermelon all work extremely well in a smoothie.
A more chunky and rich consistency can be achieved by adding nuts or legumes to a pineapple smoothie. Pecans, walnuts, cashews, peanuts, or Brazilian nuts can combine with pineapple to achieve an almost cake like texture. Also, coconut is a sweet and savory way to add texture and flavor to a yogurt based smoothie recipe. Whipped cream is an excellent topping for any smoothie and it comes in several flavors, including chocolate. Chocolate, fudge, white chocolate, caramel, and peanut butter pieces can be chopped and diced for a sweet addition to any smoothie.
Ice cream can be added to basically any smoothie recipe instead of yogurt if calories aren’t a concern. A cup of ice cream, a handful of ice cubes, and a handful of frozen peaches make an excellent peaches and cream smoothie. Pineapple, caramel, nuts, and cinnamon can be combined to make a Pineapple upside down smoothie, excellent for an after dinner indulgence.
