Healthy Fruit Smoothie Recipe
I love sweet, fruity smoothies. They’re so refreshing and go down quickly and easily. But they can be sugar minefields, and many clock in with stats that should make them meals, not snacks.
Luckily, this banana strawberry pineapple smoothie has no added sugar and won’t derail your diet. It’s made with just three (real) ingredients: strawberries, bananas, and pineapple juice. Plus, it’s naturally vegan, gluten-free, contains no added sugar, and it’s healthy.
Strawberries and bananas are such a great combo. I grew up with good old-fashioned strawberry-banana yogurt and it was my favorite. The flavors in the smoothie remind me of all the brown bagged lunches of my childhood.
A splash of pineapple juice helps brighten the smoothie and gives it a subtle tropical vibe. If you don’t have pineapple juice, use orange juice, or another favorite. You just need something to help your blender get going.
I used frozen strawberries and previously frozen banana chunks. That way you don’t have to add ice, which waters down the smoothie.
Bananas are instrumental in smoothies because they add creaminess, without adding milk or yogurt, and bananas add fullness. The longer you blend, the fluffier the smoothie gets thanks to bananas.
This banana pineapple smoothie recipe recipe makes two smoothies. One for you, and one to share. Or one now, and one later if you freeze the leftovers.
Dirty the blender once and drink twice is my motto. But I doubt you’ll even want to save it for later. I sure didn’t.
How to Make Banana Strawberry Pineapple Smoothies
Add the frozen strawberries and banana chunks to a blender, then pour in half the pineapple juice (you want to add just enough juice to get the smoothie going). Blend on high power until the smoothie becomes creamy, pouring in more pineapple juice as needed to reach your desired consistency. The longer you blend the healthy smoothie, the fluffier it will become!
Pour the strawberry pineapple smoothie into two glasses. If you want to freeze the second smoothie portion, cover a freezer-safe glass with plastic wrap or store in a freezer bag or a glass jar with a lid. You want to cover the smoothie somehow to prevent it from absorbing the freezer smells!
When you’re ready to enjoy your frozen smoothie, let it rest on your counter for 30 minutes before digging in. This will warm the smoothie just enough to make it creamy again.
Can I Use Fresh Fruit in This Easy Smoothie Recipe?
Yep, you can use fresh or frozen fruit in this smoothie recipe (or a combination of both!). Just know that if you use fresh fruit you’ll need to add ice to the smoothie to achieve a smoothie consistency. Adding ice can water down the flavors of the pineapple smoothie, but it will still taste good.
Tips for the Best Fruit Smoothie
The riper the bananas, the sweeter they’ll be. When you see bundles of very ripe bananas on sale at your grocery store, snatch them up. Just peel them, break them into 2-inch chunks, throw them into a Ziplock, and that’s your banana strawberry pineapple smoothie stash.
(Or your banana bread stash! I have 45+ banana recipes and hoard ripe ones in the freezer for smoothies, muffins, and quickbreads.)
When buying the pineapple juice (or your juice of choice) for this fruit smoothie, check the ingredients list to confirm that fruit juice is the only ingredient. Many store-bought juices contain corn syrup or other sweeteners, which you want to avoid.
Lastly, feel free to switch up this recipe to suit your tastes. Consider this banana strawberry pineapple smoothie recipe a guideline for any smoothie you’re craving. The toughest part about making the perfect smoothie is getting the fruit to liquid ratio just right, but I’ve already done the hardest work for you!

Strawberry Banana Pineapple Smoothie
Sweet strawberries, creamy bananas, and a splash of pineapple juice helps brighten this fruit smoothie and gives it a subtle tropical vibe.
- 8 ounces strawberries (about 2 cups, I used whole, frozen berries)
- 2 medium ripe bananas, peeled (previously frozen into chunks is ideal)
- about 1 cup pineapple juice, or as necessary (substitute with orange juice or your favorite juice medley)
- To the canister of a blender, add the strawberries, bananas, and about 1/2 cup juice. Add enough juice only as necessary to get blender moving and until desired smoothie consistency is reached.
- Blend on high power until smooth and creamy. The longer you blend, the fluffier the mixture tends to become due to the bananas.
- Pour mixture into 2 glasses and serve immediately. Extra portion will keep airtight in the freezer for up to 1 month (cover a freezer-safe glass with plasticwrap or place inside a ziplock to prevent freezer smells). Allow to come up to room temp for about 30 minutes before serving.

Just made this for my 12 year old granddaughter & she loved it. She topped it with a squirt of whipped cream
Great idea and glad she loved it!
Macros? And can I add protein powder? Maybe Vanilla?
We’re huge smoothie people at my house and this is the perfect Summer flavor!
Lovely, natural and wholesome recipes; really easy to follow – thank you.
Thanks for trying the recipe and I’m glad it came out great for you!
Oh my goodness, this is exactly how I make my hubby’s smoothie every morning, except I use pineapple and not just the nice and sometimes I throw in a small handful of blueberries. Yummy! Color is so pretty!
I heart strawberry banana smoothies, and yours is so pretty! And that totally makes it even better! ;)
Your smoothies look so wonderful! I love smoothies and I can’t wait to try some of these. All of your photography really beautiful. I am so glad I found your blog!
Thanks for the compliments, Emily! :)
Pineapple juice is pretty much my most favorite thing EVER. Love that you used it in this smoothie! Pinned!
I’ll trade you these for one of your mojitos or other delish looking drinks! (or that mojoito fruit salad I keep seeing!)
The best part about spring is that fruits are so sweet that we never need to add sugar!
Love this flavor combo! I often make smoothies with strawberries, frozen bananas, pineapple, and almond milk. The fruit is so sweet I never need sugar. One of my favorite breakfasts.
I love the combination of strawberries and bananas. What a great idea to add pineapple juice! Love your pictures, too. Just gorgeous!
This looks downright amazing!
This smoothie looks so refreshing. I love the addition of pineapple juice. Very clever.
Averie, I love the pineapple action in with the strawberries! I grew up on strawberry yogurt, too… and is still my most fave! Simply can’t wait to whip this smoothie up! (I think your next cookbook should be about smoothies… you rock at making them, my friend!)
You’re so sweet. I would actually like to do something like that. I have fun shooting drinks and making them!
Hi, Averie! I’m rarely tempted by smoothies (just not my thing) but for some reason this one did grab my attention. It just looks so creamy and the idea of adding the pineapple just makes the whole thing sound completely delicious. I already have 2 over-ripe bananas in my tiny freezer, but you’ve persuaded me to squeeze in some more. Thanks for all the great tips!
Glad you like the tips!
A perfect day to start up my day off right! Beautiful pictures! Pinned!
Thanks for pinning, Sommer!
Averie – your smoothies are unreal! Just so gorgeous and vibrant! I love all the flavors you have in this one! Pinning :)
Thanks, Chelsea, for the compliments & the pin!
Smoothies are the best. THey are so rich and creamy but still healthy! Strawberries are my favorite, but I’ve never tried them with pineapple, at least not in a smoothie. They are such a breeze to whip up, I can rememdy that really fast!
Mmmm this looks so refreshing :)
Could you add some protein to this? I was told I need more protein. Powder or what?
I’m sure you could add protein powder, yes. Or rather than use juice, make it with milk which has protein.
It’s gorgeous and perfect for the warmer weather! Pinned!
Thanks for the pin, as always! :)
Strawberry banana yogurt was a favorite of my brother and me too! In fact, I think that was the only yogurt my brother ate for about 5-6 years… He was a pretty picky eater as a kid. But now he’s drinking green smoothies and eating kale and inspiring me to try new foods — funny how that works! ;) Love the pretty pink color of your smoothies; it’s so cute and tempting!
one – I love smoothies and this one looks absolutely perfect! two – your pictures are stunning! drink pictures are my fav!
Thanks for saying that about my pics! I love drink pics, too!
I usually use orange juice in my smoothies. I’ll have to try the pineapple juice.
This smoothie looks delish! Strawberry banana is my favorite combination, but I love the pineapple juice added in for a tropical twist. Like you I’m also a banana hoarder and keep my freezer well stocked with overripe bananas!
Such a pretty smoothie, I love these photos!
What a lovely smoothie, Averie! I’ll pass on those high sugar smoothies and take this one any day!
This smoothie looks stunning Averie and so summery – Pinned and can’t wait to try :)
Thanks for pinning, Ceara!
Funny, I just made this last weekend. Without the pineapple juice though. Love it with frozen bananas; so thick and delicious without the added sugar ^^
I don’t usually do smoothies because, as you say, they are a sugar minefield, but this looks healthy AND tasty.
That smoothie looks so thick and refreshing. I can’t seem to get enough pineapple lately..after a long freezing winter I’ll take all the fruit I can get.
You are speaking my language! I have been craving smoothies NONSTOP lately and strawberry/banana is the best combo there is. This one will be happening for breakfast today, most definitely. :)
Oh my gosh this smoothie is mind-blowing GORGEOUS. I just love the pretty-pink color and the fruit combination you used. — Strawberries, banana, and pineapple sound like a fantastic smoothie combo! I could probably make a meal out of this smoothie. LOL ;) pinned.
Thanks for pinning & the nice photography compliments!
the color is spot on and I love the texture it has with the small bites of pulsed strawberries throughout! Looks great
This smoothie looks perfect! I can’t get enough of them when it gets hot outside. I made a VERY similar smoothie this past weekend–great minds think alike ;)
Gosh I’ve been traveling and havent been up-to-date on everyone’s posts – missed that one of yours! I bet it was great!
All your smoothies look amazing!
This smoothie makes a perfect summer breakfast! The color is so lovely and attractive for kids too! Pinned!
Thanks for pinning, Zerrin!
Strawberry banana yogurt was my favorite growing up, too. I’m sure I would love this smoothie. :)
I love the color–pink with flecks of red…and I can imagine how good this would taste too! We are finally getting some warmer “smoothie” weather here. It’s been in the mid to high 70’s which may still seem cool to some, but it feels great compared to the long winter we had.
Oh that’s downright tropical given the winter most of the country has had! Enjoy it!
Oh man, I LOVE these photos – they are so girly and pretty! I am generally not a smoothie drinks to the whole “calories of a meal thing” so I am all over yours! Especially with strawberry and pineapple – perfect for Summer! Pinned :)
Thanks for pinning & cals of a meal – I know! I’d rather eat a brownie most times but this one isn’t bad at all :)
What a gorgeous smoothie! And just what I need with Cabo around the corner – you know I go on my daily starbucks/donut runs which I really need to stop doing!
Thank you! I was *hoping for* a decent shoot. Took a ton of pics to get a few keepers but hopefully they will do the trick :)
