FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I make this less fruity tasting?

If you aren’t super big on the potent fruit taste, you can increase the coconut milk and decrease the pineapple juice.

Can I substitute the Greek Yogurt in pineapple smoothies?

You can, you can use regular yogurt, vanilla yogurt or even some cottage cheese for some extra protein in the drink.

Do I have to use coconut milk?

While the coconut milk gives this a more tropical flavor you can use regular cow’s milk, if you prefer.

Can I use fresh pineapple?

You can but I like to freeze the pineapple before making this smoothie. Frozen fruit is key in having the consistency we want with this drink.

I’m not a fan of agave, what can I use instead?

If you don’t want to use the agave you can substitute it for honey or even maple syrup or skip it altogether.

Do I have to use collagen or protein powder?

Absolutely not. I like to add some in there for some extra protein and make it a little healthier and filling but omitting it will not change the recipe flavor at all.

  1. This smoothie sounds so delicious, but I’m allergic to bananas. Would there be something you can suggest that I can substitute with? Thanks 🙂
