Celebrate the everyday by adding DOLE pineapple juice to your breakfast smoothie. This is such a delicious recipe!
School day mornings are busier than ever in the spring, but you don’t have to settle for a bowl of cereal for breakfast. This healthy breakfast smoothie celebrates the taste of things to come as we re-enter the growing season after a long winter.
I’m happy to be working with DOLE and Mom It Forward to help spread the word about a secret weapon for smoothies and other recipes. DOLE Pineapple Juice is a great pantry staple to keep on hand to give smoothies that extra burst of flavor. It’s healthier than adding sugar, because pineapple juice is a good source of vitamins A, C, and E. This is 100 percent juice, unlike a lot of products you’ll find in the “juice” aisle. It’s a GMO-free product packaged in BPA-free cans.
DOLE’s shelf-stable juice is available in a big 46-ounce can, as well as a 6-pack of 6-ounce cans. The large package is more affordable per ounce, but the smaller size is convenient if you don’t think you’ll get through the big can. DOLE is offering a $1 off coupon for both sizes of pineapple juice, so this is a great time to give it a try.
Pair this smoothie with an Aloha Muffin and fresh pineapple for a healthy, delicious breakfast. This recipe is slightly adapted from DOLE’s Breakfast-a-Go-Go Smoothie. I use my own plain yogurt and a little vanilla extract rather than the vanilla yogurt in their recipe. The flavor is fantastic!
$.71 per serving
- 3/4 cup DOLE canned pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 very ripe banana
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Add the ingredients to your blender in the order listed. Alternately, you can use a food processor. Process the ingredients until smooth.
Taste the smoothie. Depending on the ripeness of your banana, you may want to add a teaspoon of honey or pure maple syrup.
