Yay! We are finally back with another juices recipe. And this time, we are sharing our take on Orange Pineapple Smoothie. To be honest, pineapples was one of my least favourite fruit. Yes, it looks pretty with its bright yellow colour and delicious,juicy taste. But I hate how I would often get a cut on my tongue from these pineapples. Therefore, I would often avoid eating pineapples despite its knowing how tasty it is.   Hence, to enjoy pineapple, I found another way to consume it without cutting my tongues! (YAY!). I love love this recipe, I love how it taste, and I love how it looks. Basically, I love everything about this glass of smoothie lol.

Every time being offered ‘pineapples’ when I head over to other people’s house, I would politely reject and they will go ‘aiyo! you don’t eat pineapples one ah? you’re missing out leh‘. Yes, I know I am missing out and therefore, I finally found another way to enjoy pineapple without hurting my tongue (YAY!). You are correct, which is by blending up the pineapples with orange juices. I love this recipe, I love how it tasted, and I love how it looks. Basically, I love everything about this glass of smoothie lol.

However, I thought this recipe was good enough for me, but one day as I was scrolling through Google on smoothie recipes, I found one particular recipe that requires vanilla yoghurt. I thought, hmm, why not try adding it into this recipe. WOW! I was mind blown by how good it tasted and this is what I would call a perfect pineapple orange smoothie, it was creamy, smooth and sweet with its natural sweetness from the pineapples and oranges with a hint of vanilla flavour, Yum! Now, let’s jump straight into the ingredients and preparation needed to enjoy this glass of smoothie.
