Pineapple Smoothie Bowl. My ultra thick pineapple smoothie bowl is made with just 2 ingredients! All you need to make my easy pineapple smoothie bowl is frozen pineapple chunks and any kind of milk.
There is nothing I love to make more than super thick smoothie bowls! Smoothie bowls are so delicious and so beautiful! I make them in the summer, fall, winter, and spring.
For some reason, winter is my favorite time to make tropical smoothie bowls.. maybe that's because it feels like I am going on a vacation from home when it's snowing outside. I hope this tropical pineapple smoothie bowl recipe brings you the same vibes from where ever in the world you are.
THICK PINEAPPLE SMOOTHIE BOWL INGREDIENTS
My pineapple smoothie bowl is made with just two ingredients:
- Frozen pineapple chunks
- Milk (I usually use plain oat milk or unsweetened vanilla soy milk)
WHAT TO PUT IN A SMOOTHIE BOWL TO MAKE IT THICK?
The NUMBER ONE key to make a thick smoothie bowl is USE FROZEN FRUIT! That's it. I use just a splash of milk to get the blender going, but you really don't need milk at all if you have time to blend it longer.
ASK THE DIETITIAN:
ARE SMOOTHIE BOWLS GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Yes! Smoothie bowls are excellent for weight loss. When you are craving a sweet treat in the middle of the day, or at night, make a smoothie bowl.
Smoothie bowls are packed with nutrients because they are loaded with nutrient dense and high fiber fruits. You get a bonus health benefit if you top your smoothie bowl with healthy fats like nut butters, nuts, and seeds.
Turn your smoothie bowl from a sweet treat into a breakfast smoothie bowl by adding your favorite protein powder and topping it with some nut butter, nuts, and or seeds.

TIPS ON MAKING THE BEST THICK PINEAPPLE SMOOTHIE BOWL RECIPE
Use only frozen pineapple. Frozen fruit is key to get a super thick and sorbet like smoothie bowl texture.
Use just a splash of milk. The milk is necessary only to help your frozen fruit blend faster and get creamier. Don't add more that ⅛ cup of liquid per cup of frozen fruit in a smoothie bowl.
Keep pushing frozen fruit down towards the blades. If you have a blender with a tamper, use it as the blender is running. If you do not have a tamper, turn off your blender every minute or so to push the frozen fruit towards the blades.
Keep blending until there is no frozen fruit left. Make sure that you have completely blended everything!
Add your favorite toppings. A smoothie bowl is not complete without toppings! I love to add fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, and sometimes nut butter.
Frequently asked questions about my pineapple smoothie bowl.
Why are smoothie bowls bad for you?
Smoothie bowls are only bad for you if you use sugar in them! Watch out for sugar sweetened yogurt and plant based milks. Also, check your protein powders to make sure they are not sweetened. Otherwise, smoothie bowls are healthy for you.
Which smoothie bowl is best for weight loss?
Pick a smoothie bowl that has frozen fruit, vegetable, and includes a source of fat and protein. The fat and protein source can be used as a topping.
Example: Pineapple Strawberry Smoothie bowl base of frozen pineapple and frozen strawberry plus protein powder. Topped with cashew butter, and hemp seeds.
Are pineapple smoothie bowls good without banana?
Yes! You can still get a creamy smoothie bowl texture without frozen banana.
Why is my smoothie bowl watery?
Your smoothie bowl may be watery because you added too much liquid, or you used fresh fruit/vegetable.
