This pineapple blueberry smoothie is easy to make, dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan. It makes a delicious breakfast or fruit-filled snack!
I often try to make smoothies that incorporate leafy greens because it's an easy way to get them into my daily diet. My favourites include my arugula smoothie and my spinach apple smoothie.
For this pineapple blueberry smoothie recipe however, I wanted to focus on a fruity, sweet flavour. This smoothie is still packed with nutrition from the pineapple, blueberries, and banana. Chia seeds also give this smoothie added protein, fibre, and healthy fats!
- oat milk (or almond milk, but oat milk is the best!)
- frozen blueberries (or fresh)
- frozen pineapple chunks (or fresh)
- frozen banana
- chia seeds
- ice to chill, if not using all frozen fruit
I like to use all frozen fruit to make this smoothie super thick and refreshing. However, you could use a combination of fresh fruit and frozen fruit. This may also make it easier to blend if you don't have a high-powered blender.
One serving of this smoothie contains ¾ cups of blueberries. Blueberries are one of the best fruits for your health because they are high in antioxidants and super low in calories!
Foods high in antioxidants have been shown to slow or prevent the spread of cancer. You never have to feel guilty about adding a handful of blueberries to your smoothie! They also add many beneficial vitamins to your diet.
Tips for the best pineapple blueberry smoothie
I recommend using oat milk as opposed to almond milk for this smoothie for a slightly creamier texture, however another plant milk will work.
This recipe lists frozen fruit for the pineapple, blueberries, and bananas. This will create a thicker, cooler smoothie, which i love! However you could substitute fresh fruit for the blueberries or pineapple. I highly recommend using frozen banana though to create a creamier texture. Cut a banana in half and freeze it ahead of time so it's ready to go!
I use a Vitamix (affiliate link) and it blends this smoothie quite well, however it is quite thick using all frozen fruit, so I do have to use my tamper to mix it a bit and get it going. If you do not have a high-powered blender, you will likely have a difficult time getting this smoothie going. In that case, I recommend slowly adding a bit more milk until things get moving. It will also help if you blend the frozen fruit in stages. So first just blend the milk and one frozen fruit, then blend the other two frozen fruits in stages as well.

Pineapple Blueberry Smoothie
- High-powered blender
- ¾ cup + 2 tablespoons oat milk (unsweetened)
- ¾ cups frozen blueberries (or fresh)
- ½ cup frozen pineapple (or fresh)
- ½ frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- Add all ingredients and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, I recommend blending the frozen fruit in stages. Add a bit more milk if needed to get your blender going.
Add more pineapple. You can't taste it very well is you add the amount that the recipe says.
Absolutely add more if you'd like! If the pineapple you add is frozen, you may just need to add a bit more oat milk.
