Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie
I have never actually been a big fan of smoothies. I would see pictures of them on Pinterest and think… “EW, look at how thick that is? And there is NO WAY you can’t taste the greens or feel the chunks of greens!”
But lately, I’ve been playing around with making my own smoothies and even with my less than stellar blender I’ve made some pretty delicious smoothies. I’ll be posting more of them soon. I’m hoping to get a better blender soon.
This smoothie is SO GOOD. I like to make it for breakfast, but also for an afternoon snack. Smoothies make great snacks when it’s so hot outside. With no added sugar of any kind, you can even say this smoothie is healthy! (Because it really is!)

How to make this Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie
I use frozen fruit because I think that my blender does a better job when the fruit is frozen, as opposed to fresh. If you have a good, high powered blender feel free to use fresh fruit. I really need to upgrade my blender, I have my eye on a Ninja Blender or this GoWISE Blender. (If you have a good budget-friendly but still high powered blender please tell me!)
All you need is 1 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 cup of frozen pineapple chunks, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1-1 1/2 cups milk of your choice. I used unsweetened almond milk.
Throw everything in the blender and blender until smooth! If needed you can adjust the amount of liquid depending on if you like your smoothies thicker or thinner. I like to easily be able to drink my smoothies with a thinner straw so I make mine on the thinner side.
Pour your smoothie into your favorite cup/glass/mug/jar and enjoy! Doesn’t this look delicious?
