Sunny Hawaiian Smoothie Recipe

 

sunny hawaiiain pineapple smoothie

My awesome smoothie maker I purchased last summer has been a blessing in disguise. We’ve created smoothies, slushes, ice cream drinks, shakes and so much more. We’ve experimented with different fruits and combination’s, flavors and syrups and just had a ton of fun. One of my favorite drinks we created is what we call the Sunny Hawaiian Smoothie because it reminds us of a hot summer day in Hawaii, and we’ve served it twice at two different Luau’s we’ve hosted. It’s a big hit and I’m usually asked for the recipe.

Sunny Hawaiian Smoothie

1 c. freshly squeezed orange juice (we used Oranges from Parkesdale Farm)
1 can (10oz) of crushed pineapple with juice
2 med. bananas
1 8oz. carton plain or vanilla yogurt (We found coconut cream yogurt once and tried it and yeah… wish I could buy it in big size because it was amazing!! Don’t be afraid to try other flavors)
1 c. ice
splash of grenadine syrup for color, if desired

Add the ice, pineapple and bananas in a blender; process until smooth. Add the orange juice and yogurt and blend. Pour into glasses, and add a splash of grenadine syrup for color if desired. Serve immediately. You can garnish the side of the glass with a pineapple slice for decoration.

NOTE: You can use more or less of any of the fruit ingredients – just changes up the flavor, makes one more prominent than another, etc. Enjoy this recipe!

      Hi Judi, I use anything from a 10oz can to a 15oz can. Haven’t gone over that size yet. Generally a 10oz can works best, unless you want even more wonderful pineapple flavor :)

      I used myfitnesspal.com to kinda throw the ingredients together. Assuming you were going to serve it to 4 people, the calories for one 8oz glass of smoothie would be approximately 160 calories (take or give) (depending on which brands you go with, etc.)
