Pineapple detox smoothie – a creamy delicious drink full of good for you ingredients.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, it’s no surprise that smoothies are a big part of my life.
This pineapple detox smoothie is my latest favorite way to pack lots of goodness into a drink.
It’s a close call which is my favorite smoothie right now, this or my peanut butter banana smoothie.
My son Crosby is still a very picky eater, but he will drink any and every smoothie.
I love that I can put tons of nutrition into a glass for him to drink up (he loves glass straws just like us!)
This simple and delicious pineapple detox is made with ingredients that will make you feel great!
ingredients to make a pineapple detox smoothie
- fresh pineapple
- frozen bananas
- frozen peaches
Tropical smoothies with pineapple taste so fresh and really satisfy my sweet tooth.
I personally love my smoothies to be realllyyyy thick, more like ice cream texture or icee texture.
In order to make this smoothie the way I did, you will need to use your high speed blender.
The most common brands are blendtec or vitamix.
If you don’t have a high speed blender, you might want to add water or not use some of the harder to break down ingredients.
Fresh ginger, celery, and lemon especially will not break down well in a regular powered blender.
It just depends on the strength of your blender.
How to make your pineapple detox smoothie
First, peel your cucumber, lemon, and ginger.
Add pineapple, cucumber, celery, ginger, lemon, banana, and peaches to a high speed blender.
Blend until smooth.
Add ice to desired texture and keep blending (I used 2 cups of ice).
Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
As usual, one of my flaws is my inability to make a small smoothie recipe.
No matter how hard I try, they are always ginormous and filled to the brim with wholesome ingredients.
This recipe easily serves 3 – 4 people, but you can either halve the recipe or store leftovers in the fridge.
See how thick it is on the spoon?
That is the perfect smoothie texture in my opinion!
Tips for storing leftover smoothies
If you plan to store the leftovers, just pour the smoothie into mason jars with matching lids to seal tight.
When you go to drink your leftover smoothie, just blend with ice to desired texture if you want it to be thick.
This pineapple detox smoothie tastes like a pineapple frosty to me.
I love to add extra ice to make my smoothies overly thick.
Not only is it more delicious, but I feel like I’m getting a treat.
I honestly crave smoothies now that I have learned how to make them delicious every time!

One note about the celery – if you are not a celery person, I would not add this in.
It’s totally optional for the smoothie, but you definitely will taste a hint of celery.
My husband and I like celery, so we didn’t hardly notice.
You won’t, however, taste the cucumber.
The other flavors of the smoothie will come through much stronger than the cucumber.
I love that this smoothie uses no liquid, that helps make it even more thick.
It’s a great example of how to make a smoothie without milk!
The liquid from the cucumber and pineapple gave it enough juice to blend without adding any additional water or other liquid.
For even more punch, add in some baby spinach.
You won’t even notice it!
Happy smoothie making!

Pineapple Detox Smoothie Recipe
- 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
- 1 cucumber, peeled
- 2 stalks of celery (optional - see notes)

- 1-2" piece of fresh ginger, peeled
- 1 cup frozen banana chunks
- 10 oz bag of frozen peach slices
- 2 cups of ice
- Add pineapple, cucumber, and lemon to the bottom of the blender. These are the liquid ingredients, so the blender will need them at the bottom to help blend

- Add ice to desired texture and blend (I used 2 cups)
- Pour into glasses and serve immediately
- Store leftovers in a mason jar in the fridge and blend with ice when ready to drink
If you do not like celery, I suggest leaving it out of this recipe. You cannot taste it much, but a celery hater might notice it.
