This Delicious Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie packs a punch of refreshing flavor that’ll make your taste buds dance with delight. Bursting with juicy strawberries and tropical pineapple, this smoothie recipe is the perfect balance of fruity sweetness and nutritious goodness.

This healthy smoothie recipe has only four simple ingredients in it, with one being water. Two of the ingredients are a couple of my favorite fruits…strawberries and pineapple. (I love pineapple in my smoothies – my pineapple mango smoothie is one of our favorites!) The last ingredient is ground flaxseed, which adds healthy fats to make it a little more filling. 

During strawberry season, we love getting fresh fruit from our local farmer’s market. Strawberries make a delicious addition to breakfast smoothies. They taste amazing and are very nutritious. This is a great article on the health benefits of strawberries.

This Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie Recipe is really easy to make, and it is one of my favorite recipes. The strawberry and pineapple flavors seem to go so well together. It’s a surefire hit with the kiddos, making it a fun and healthy treat for the whole family to enjoy!

Other family favorites are our Triple Berry Smoothie and our Blueberry Lemon Smoothie. Smoothies are a great way to get nutritious foods into your kids without them even realizing it, and this smoothie has tons of vitamin C – that’s so important right now when kids seem to get sick every time they go to school. My daughter loves smoothies, and this one is one of her favorites.

Ingredients Needed

  • Frozen Sweet Pineapple
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Ground Flaxseed – If you don’t like flaxseed, you can use hemp hearts or hemp seeds, or chia seeds – or just leave it out.
  • Liquid – Water, Coconut Water, Coconut Milk, or Juice (Pineapple Juice or Orange Juice). You can also use non-dairy milk like cashew milk, soy milk, or unsweetened almond milk.
  • Optional Extra Fruits – If you desire a creamy texture, you can add some banana chunks or frozen mango.
  • Optional Add-Ins – Greek yogurt, vanilla yogurt, or plain or vanilla protein powder.

Note: It is best to use a mix of fresh and frozen fruit in your smoothie. If you use only frozen fruit, it will be very thick and difficult to drink. You can also use frozen strawberries and fresh pineapple chunks, but do not use all frozen fruit or all fresh fruit – use a mix of both.

Why use frozen fruit in smoothies? I like to use some frozen fruit in my smoothies. It works as ice to chill the smoothie and also thickens it up. If you add ice cubes, the smoothie might have less flavor as it can get watered down.

Need frozen pineapple? You can usually find bags of frozen pineapple in the frozen section of your grocery store. If you want to freeze your own pineapple, this is a great source for freezing it.

Ground flaxseed is another great addition to smoothies because it has health benefits, like being high in fiber and omega-3 fats, as well as vitamins and minerals. It also adds protein to your smoothie. This article has info on flaxseeds and their benefits.

How to Make Strawberry Pineapple Smoothies

Rinse the strawberries under warm water and discard the green stems. Slice up the berries and measure out two cups. Set them aside.

Recipe Tip

By adding the frozen fruit and water first into the blender, the frozen fruit will chop up easier in the blender.

Add the sliced strawberries and ground flaxseed to the blender. Blend until all the ingredients are combined.

Serve the smoothies chilled, and enjoy! This is the perfect smoothie to have with breakfast or as a healthy afternoon snack.

How to Store Leftover Smoothies

If you have leftover smoothie, you can place it in the refrigerator in an airtight container or a mason jar for another day (it should be used within two days.) Stir the smoothie before drinking, as it might settle to the bottom.

Recipe Tips

  • Add the frozen fruit and water into the blender first so things blend more easily.
  • This smoothie tastes best when served right away.   
  • If you have any extra berries and or pineapple, you can make the smoothie look festive by slicing them down the middle just about halfway and placing them on the rim of the glass.
  • For a complete, healthy breakfast, you can serve your smoothie with a side of some egg bites, frittata, or baked eggs.

🙋‍♀️ Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have to use flaxseed?

For another great source of protein, you can add some oats, chia seeds, or protein powder in place of the flaxseed. You can also make your smoothie without the added source of protein.

How much does this smoothie serve?

I typically make this as a healthy afternoon snack for my family of four, and we each get one 8 oz. serving. If you have extra, you can just place it in the refrigerator in an airtight container or a mason jar for another day (it should be used within two days.)

Will kids like this strawberry pineapple smoothie?

Kids love smoothiesIt is such a great way to add nutritional foods to their diet. Both of our kids love smoothies, and it is a great way to help them drink some nutrition on busy mornings while they are zooming around doing all of the things that kids do.

Variations & Substitions

  • If you don’t like flaxseed, you can use hemp hearts or hemp seeds, or chia seeds – or just leave it out.
  • Change the Liquid – Water, Coconut Water, Coconut Milk, or Juice (Pineapple Juice or Orange Juice). You can also use non-dairy milk like cashew milk, soy milk, or unsweetened almond milk.
  • Add Extra Fruits – If you desire a creamy texture, you can add some banana chunks or frozen mango. Mango will give the smoothie a bit of a tropical flavor. You can sprinkle some coconut flakes over the top or make it into a delicious smoothie bowl.
  • Add More Protein – Add Greek yogurt, vanilla yogurt, or plain or vanilla protein powder.
  • Make green smoothies by adding a handful of baby spinach.

Want to Make Your Smoothie into Popsicles? 

Just pour the mix into a popsicle mold and let them sit in the freezer for 4-6 hours (or overnight). This is another way to get nutrients into your kids. And kids love popsicles! (I mean, I do too.)
