This Orange Pineapple Smoothie is sunshine in a glass. We’re hitting all the essential flavours for the perfect early morning smoothie. Packed with fresh fruit, turmeric, almond milk and coconut water, this might be the go-to recipe from now on. Get those blenders out and make sure to have lots of ice – it’s smoothie season!

Lets break down the ingredients.

This smoothie is all about bright, vibrant flavours that you can get at any grocery store. I’m a huge fan of this combo; super tropical, zesty, it just reminds me of summer!

Oranges – Lower in acidity compared to other citrus, and just a classic breakfast ingredient.

Banana – When you blend a banana, its creamier texture helps thicken the smoothie. Bonus points if you have a few frozen ones you want to get rid of.

Pineapple – Tropical and bright, best added in frozen as it also helps keep things cold and thick!

Turmeric – A really smart addition to the recipe. Not only does it add great colour, it’s slightly earthy and peppery, which might sound like a weird addition, but trust me, you won’t want to leave it out!

Almond/Coconut – The main liquid for the smoothie, both adding a touch of roundness and nuttiness it needs to keep it from being overly sweet.

Orange Pineapple Smoothie + a little extra.

I’m a big fan of getting as much out of my food as possible, and recipes like this make it so easy.

I added 1 scoop of collagen to the smoothies for a few reasons:

It can help to increase muscle mass, prevent bone loss, relieve muscle joint pain, and most importantly, it’s known to help improve overall skin health.

It’s also worth mentioning that it’s usually odourless and tasteless, so you don’t have to worry about it adding any funky flavour to your smoothie!

Orange Pineapple Smoothie – Making it right.

Making a smoothie is a super simple thing; the only thing that matters is the power of your blender. If you’re in the market for a new blender or just want to upgrade, here’s the blender I use.

The trick to getting a super creamy and smooth smoothie is to:

Make sure as many of the ingredients are frozen. This is going to ensure your smoothie is ice-cold and stays in the perfect, half-frozen zone.

Have a good blender. Some people like a smoothie with some chunk; some like it ultra-smooth and creamy. A proper blender is going to ensure that
