Notes

Pineapple Banana Smoothie Recipe Notes: 

Do you need to add ice? Nope, no you don’t. Not adding ice will make it thicker; however, adding ice will not hurt either. If you are looking for a creamy, thick consistency, adding yogurt will definitely help with the consistency and easily turn this recipe into a pineapple banana smoothie with yogurt recipe. 
Can you use frozen bananas? Yes, you sure can. I have used frozen bananas and fruits from time to time to make various version of this smoothie. If you find that the smoothie is not as sweet as you would like, adding honey will also help sweeten the smoothie. 
Can you use canned pineapples? Yes, although in my opinion fresh is always best. Moreover, incorporating strawberries to make a pineapple banana strawberry smoothie will work as well. The smoothie can also be enhanced by adding mango, peach, and pears. All of these fruits go well with this pineapple banana smoothie recipe. 
If you are following the whole30 diet. I recommend that you do not include the honey but include other fruits to help sweeten the smoothie.  
Which milk to use? You can use any milk you would like. For this recipe, I used almond milk. It also works well with coconut milk.
