Optional Recipe Variations And Recipe Tips

When I shared this raspberry and pineapple smoothie recipe to my followers on TikTok, everybody was delight to see me sharing more smoothie recipes without bananas.

On top of that, as usual, I always test out different variations of each smoothie recipe I develop. 

Many of my followers tried different variations of this smoothie and loved it just as much!

If you like experimenting with different flavors and ingredients below are some of the tested variations of this smoothie that also taste great:

Raspberry Pineapple Smoothie

#1. Make It Even Higher Protein

If you don’t mind using protein powders in smoothies,  including a scoop of unsweetened and unflavored protein powder can add up to 22g extra protein.

Alternatively, you can use collagen powder which doesn’t tend to disrupt the digestive system

#2. Antioxidant & Caffeine Boost

I tested adding 1/2 teaspoon of green tea powder (matcha), which helped cut through the sweetness of the smoothie.

On top of that, it also made the smoothie much more energizing thanks to the caffeine in matcha

#3. Swap, Add-in, Make It Vegan!

To make this berry pineapple smoothie vegan-friendly, swap the Greek yogurt for a vegan alternative.

I tested coconut yogurt, and it worked great.

You can also swap out other ingredients, such as the raspberries or the chia seeds.

You can use any berries of choice, and swap the chia seeds for oats should you want to.

Recipe Tips

There are some tips I would like to share with you, so you can achieve the best possible result when making this drink.

  1. Use frozen fruit if you can. It helps with the texture of the smoothie immensly, and also make the smoothie taste a lot more refreshing.
  2. Add the frozen fruit as close to the blender blades as possible. Meaning, add them to your blender first.
  3. Start by blending at a low speed. This will allow your blender to crush the frozen fruit first. You can gradually increase the speed from there.
  4. Add the smoothie liquid gradually. Avoid adding it all at once, keep adding it slowly until you achieve the desired consistency.

Questions & Answers From The Smoothie Community

While everybody in my smoothie community seemed to love the recipe, some individuals did have a couple of questions regarding the recipe.

Some popular questions included:

Can I Use Fresh Fruit Instead of Frozen?

Yes, if you don't have frozen fruit, fresh is totally fine to use. However, the texture of the smoothie will be different. It won't be as thick or refreshing-tasting

I Don't Have Coconut Water - What Can I Use Instead?

You can use fruit juices, or dairy-free milk instead of coconut water. I have personaly tested using apple juice and almond milk, and both worked just as good in the smoothie.

Is This Raspberry Pineapple Smoothie Good For Weight Loss?

The smoothie only contains 273 calories per serving, making it a low calorie, but a filling breakfast choice ideal for weight-loss.

How Do I Store This Smoothie?

The best way to store the smoothie is to transfer it immediately in the fridge after blending. I like to use portable smoothie bottles and pour the blended smoothie there and refrigerate.
