Pineapple Kiwi Vanilla Yogurt Smoothie
To vary the flavor of this thick and creamy 4-ingredient smoothie, simply keep the yogurt and banana portions the same and swap the pineapple and kiwi with 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 berries, peaches, mango, etc. If you substitute the regular vanilla yogurt with thicker Greek yogurt, you will likely need to add a small amount of liquid to the smoothie in order to blend it. Coconut or almond milk, fresh squeezed orange juice or pineapple juice work especially well.

Yields 2 smoothies (approximately 12 ounces each).


  • 1 cup Stonyfield Smooth & Creamy low-fat French vanilla yogurt
  • 1 heaping cup chopped pineapple
  • 1 large banana (or 2 small), peeled, frozen, and broken into several pieces
  • 1 kiwi, peeled
  • Optional: 1 cup fresh spinach; 1 cup ice cubes; extra fruit for garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.
  2. Pour and enjoy!


  • Quote from my friend Phoebe: “The core of a pineapple is especially rich in bromelain, an enzyme helpful in gut health and reducing swelling and inflammation (sinus and joint). Don’t discard the core. It is very fibrous but edible.”  Because the core is so fibrous, blending into a smoothie is the perfect way to use it.
