Pineapple Smoothie

A decadently thick pineapple drink you can make in five minutes.

February 27, 2012

This decadently thick drink satisfies my desire for ice cream. Sometimes I vary it by adding coconut flavoring or chunks of strawberries.

Serves: 1
Prep: 5 min
Cook: 0 min
Total: 5 min


  • 1 cup low-fat or light vanilla yogurt
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks

1. In a blender, combine the yogurt and ice cubes. Blend, pulsing as needed, until the ice is in large chunks. Add the pineapple and blend at "whip" speed until smooth.
