This summer I’m all about tasty and easy fruit smoothies! Fresh fruit is plentiful in our local farmer’s markets and grocery store. My fridge is fully stocked with everything I need to make a tasty smoothie. I’ve been using Silk Almond Coconut Blend to add a guilt-free tropical flair to my recipes.

What to Serve with A Pineapple Pomegranate Smoothie
These smoothie drinks can be used as a meal replacement or even a dessert. You can also enjoy a fruit smoothie as a snack, or alongside a light lunch. Here are some ideas you can enjoy with your smoothie:
Recipe Tips and Tricks
- I like to use frozen pineapple and banana in smoothies because it enhances the fact that it’s naturally cold. If you only have fresh fruit, you can add a little bit of ice in your blender to bring that extra chill.
- If you want to make it thick and creamy, add some silken tofu. Plus, it takes on the flavour of whatever you put in your smoothie and you nor the kids will know it’s there. It adds a nice punch of protein. You can also add more bananas or avocado.
- When making a smoothie, start using your blender at a low speed and work your way up in speed so it blends all of the ingredients appropriately.
Variations and Substitutions
It’s very easy to swap things out in this recipe. You can trade out your milk or milk alternative. You can swap out your fruit choices and you can vary the thickness of your smoothie.
Add in other things, here are some great additions: cinnamon, other fruit, vanilla extract, yogurt, Greek yogurt, protein powder, etc.
This smoothie is best enjoyed right when you make it. But you can store your smoothie in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Be sure to give your homemade smoothie a good stir before you go to sip on it again. Pomegranate Pineapple Smoothies like to separate when they’re stored in the refrigerator.
Can I Double This Smoothie Recipe?
Absolutely, it’s super simple to double this recipe and make 4 smoothie servings. You can also increase this to make more, just remember that it all needs to fit in the blender, so you may need to work in batches.
How Do I Thicken the Smoothie?
If you find that your smoothie is a little more thick than you would like it to be, add some other thickening ingredients like, yogurt, tofu or more fruit, pineapple, and banana.
My Smoothie is Too Thick- Help!
Don’t worry my friend, I have you covered! It’s super easy to end up with a thick smoothie if you’re fruit heavy, to thin it out add some more milk/milk alternative to get it thinner.
I recommend adding your milk or milk alternative in the pineapple and pomegranate smoothie in small increments because it will thin it out faster than you think. Using a Tablespoon at a time should do the trick, just add it in slowly.
Can You Make This in Advance?
You can make these delicious Pineapple Pomegranate Smoothies a bit in advance and then store them in the fridge, or better yet, store your smoothie in the freezer.
Once you freeze your smoothie, you can thaw it out in the fridge and adjust the thickness as needed. Do note that you may need to thicken it or thin it out as necessary after you freeze it.
You may also choose to freeze your smoothies in popsicle molds. This is a great way to enjoy your smoothies again and again. When you’re ready to enjoy a smoothie pop, all you have to do is pop one out of the molds and boom, ready to enjoy!
This is also a great idea to have on hand when the kids are running around outside in the hot summer heat. These homemade smoothie popsicles are healthier alternatives to those sugar packed frozen treats they tend to want at the grocery store.
Now that we have your mouth watering after talking all about this fantastic Pomegranate Pineapple Smoothie, go ahead and grab the few ingredients that you need and get to making these. Remember you only need 5 minutes to make two of these bad boys!
