The Banana and Pineapple Smoothie – Simple ingredients for a big taste

A banana and pineapple smoothie with cocoa and milk.

The Banana and Pineapple Smoothie is just that. It is a simple combination of these two excellent fruits that I have blended with a few extra ingredients. Cocoa Powder compliments both the banana and pineapple and neutralizes some of the sweetness making the overall taste only slightly sweet. The low fat milk can be substituted for another variety like soy milk to give the smoothie a creamier texture.

The ingredients mix easily and need no more then 10 seconds to blend fully. I’d always advise to buy pineapple in a can. It just makes more sense, you spend a lot less time making the smoothie and I don’t know about you put pineapples are pretty big and I don’t have the stomach for eating a whole pineapple.
