Time to Chill Out … This Smoothie Will Turn Any Day Into Summer Break!

Remember when you were a kid …

Was there a happier moment in your entire little life than when you stepped off that school bus on the last day of school, and walked into the promises of summer vacation?

All those sunshine-drenched vacation days stretching ahead of you, filled with wonderful things like playing at the pool and licking drippy, icy-cold Creamsicles!

Two pineapple orange smoothies in handled, clear glasses, with two yellow and orange towels, oranges and straws.

Ahhhhhh … remember that feeling??? Yeah, that’s pretty much as good as it gets!

Wanna recapture that moment (at least a little), and maybe share it with your own kiddos, too?

With this Pineapple Orange Smoothie, you can slurp a little Creamsicle joy any time. No matter what time of year it is, and even if the sun isn’t shining.

The creamy, orange pineapple deliciousness of this smoothie is sure to add the joy of summer break into any day!

Why Smoothies Are So Great

Here at THK, we love smoothies for lots of reasons. They’re:

  • hydrating
  • cooling
  • full of nutrition

And they’re so totally portable! It’s easy to whip one up and pour it into cups as you dash out the door (which is pretty much the definition of summer … at least at my house).

Side note: If you love smoothies as much as we do, try some of our other favorites, like:

How We Dreamed Up This Dreamy Smoothie

When Shelley and I first talked about posting a smoothie recipe, we asked the kids to dream up their ideal flavors. (It was their summer break, after all.)

After many excited suggestions, my youngest requested an orange creamsicle smoothie.

Yummmmm – that sounded so refreshing! Well-played, littlest one, well-played.

Now we were just as excited as the kids!

So we started experimenting with ingredients … and when we added the pineapple, we realized we’d struck gold.

It still had that fabulous Orange Creamsicle taste we all know and love, but it was suddenly so much more!

My kids had to be the taste-testers for at least four different batches of smoothies – so sad for them, right?!? But, besides the occasional brain freeze, our efforts (and their dedicated sipping and slurping) all paid off.

This Orange Pineapple Smoothie recipe is a family-favorite keeper, and it still gets lots of requests all year ’round – our kids absolutely love it. And, as moms, we feel terrific about all the nutritious ingredients packed into each yummy sip.

Pineapple Orange Smoothie Nutrition

Even though this Orange Smoothie tastes like an indulgent treat, it has a lot going for it nutritionally.

• It’s got a full cup of pineapple which, along with the orange juice, adds tons of vitamin C (as well as lots of other vitamins and antioxidants).

• The Greek yogurt provides a great pop of protein.

• It’s so hydrating, especially with all the ice in addition to the juice – so it’s great after a long day of sun-warmed summer fun, or after a hard workout all year ’round.

• It’s got a wonderfully creamy-dreamy, rich texture. But, since we use nonfat Greek yogurt, our Orange Pineapple Smoothie is completely fat free.
