A delicious blend of pineapple, banana, and yogurt is perfect as after school snack. Pineapple and banana are the two most preferred fruits for smoothies and milkshakes. The tropical flavour of pineapple balances the tastes of sweet and tart. Banana beautifully blends with most of the fruits in any recipe. In this recipe banana has 2 advantages, first it provides the creamy texture that appeals kids, second it naturally provides sweetness to the smoothie and recipe doesn’t actually need extra sugar or syrup which ultimately makes this smoothie healthy.

Pineapple banana smoothie – a healthy & nutritious after-school snack

Kids need to have healthy snacks after school, I think smoothies are a quick and easy option. You really can’t get much quicker energizing option than smoothies. They require just a few minutes to whip up and are packed with vitamins, fiber, and other nutrients to keep kids fueled until their next meal. This is a great way to boost our kid’s fruits and veggies intake.

My little chef love to choose her fruits and make smoothie herself most of the times. Smoothies, date barsoatmeal energy balls, strawberry banana milkshake are her preferred after-school snacks.

Pineapple banana smoothie recipe variations

As banana provides sufficient sweetness, my daughter enjoys this smoothie as it is without any added sugar. However, for extra natural sweetness add 1 more banana or dates to suit your kids taste buds. You could add ground cardamom, vanilla extract or ground cinnamon to enhance the flavour.

If your kids are like mine, they can be picky about colour, texture, flavour and even the glass you serve in matters!! Based on these factors my daughter categorises dish as ‘yummy’ or ‘yucky’. You can totally customise this recipe to suit your kid’s preference. Be creative to pair up different fruits to pass your kid’s taste test.
