Try my low-calorie peach pineapple smoothie if you are looking for a fruity blended drink to provide some summer refreshment. It is whipped up to be SO CREAMY that you’ll want to eat it with a spoon! This pineapple peach smoothie has an ingredient that drew the most family controversy out of all my smoothie recipes this week. Keep reading to find out what it is!
This peach pineapple smoothie is a good one if you have a fat loss goal. You’re getting a high-volume, super creamy, delicious dessert for under 100 calories with this recipe.
I’ve whipped this healthy shake up to be so light and airy that I am hesitant to call it a smoothie. Don’t forget your spoon!
I don’t recommend doubling this peach and pineapple smoothie recipe. It’s much easier to make a smooth smoothie if you don’t double the recipe. The pineapples and peaches seemed to have an easier time breaking down when given more space.
Additionally, my processor ended up wholly filled with this peachy, pineapple-y smoothie fluff, whether I doubled the recipe or not.
That means you can get the same volume of food for half the calories if you DON’T try to scale up the recipe. This is great news for volume eaters, such as myself. I’ll definitely be giving my processor the extra room to whip more air into my smoothies from now on!

🍑 Peach Pineapple Smoothie Ingredients
Here’s what you need to make a pineapple peach smoothie without yogurt:
- ½ cup chopped frozen peaches
- ½ cup chopped frozen pineapple (very ripe)
- ¾ cup milk (I used 2% milk)
- ½ teaspoon orange zest
If you don’t have frozen fruit, you can use fresh fruit or canned fruit in juice or water (not heavy syrup) that has been drained for this recipe. Just make sure to freeze your fruit before making this low cal smoothie.
I did something a little controversial with this peach and pineapple dessert. I added a touch of orange zest to the frozen peaches and pineapples. (Orange zest has far more concentrated orange flavor than orange juice, which is why I went for the zest.)
I was so happy when I tasted the blended smoothie. I thought that the touch of orange made the dish perfect. (Hot tip! I provide a different spin on the tasty fruit combination in my peach and pineapple salsa recipe.)
The rest of my household, however, experienced things differently. They thought that tiny touch of orange ruined the smoothie, turning what would otherwise be sweet into something bitter.
My advice is to skip the zest if you tend to dislike bitter flavors more than average. Otherwise, leave it in and enjoy!
(So, which of us is right? If you try my peach pineapple smoothie, drop us a comment below and let me know what you think!)
In terms of kitchen equipment, I prefer to use a large food processor instead of a regular blender for smoothies. I find that food processors do a better job blending smoothies to be completely smooth. If you have a high speed blender (such as a Vitamix or NutriBullet), that should work too.

🍍 How to Make a Peach Pineapple Smoothie
How do you make a peach and pineapple smoothie? Here are the steps for making peach pineapple smoothies:
- Chop the frozen fruits into small pieces, if they aren’t already. This will make them easier to blend.
- Place the pineapple, peach, orange zest, and milk in a food processor. Blend until completely smooth. You can stop the processor and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula if the ingredients are sticking. I have a 10-cup food processor, and the smoothie expanded to fill almost the entire thing during blending. (This only happens with dairy milks).
- Taste and add sweetener if you wish. I always use very ripe fruits and feel this is unnecessary. (Keep in mind that the nutrition information will change if you add a sweetener.)
- Pour the smoothie into tall glasses or wide-mouth pint mason jars and serve immediately. You may need a spoon for this one- though wide-width paper straws may work too.
🌡️ How to Store Smoothies
Make ice pops with your leftover pineapple peach smoothie! Simply pour any leftovers into silicone popsicle molds, and freeze overnight. If you used dairy milk, these popsicles have a lovely creamy texture.
🍓 What fruits blend well with peaches?
Smoothie recipes are pretty flexible. There are lots of other fruits you can use to make a 100 calorie smoothie. Here are some other types of fruit that blend well with peaches:
- Pear sauce
Some other ideas are to make a green smoothie with kale, spinach, or a little mint. You could also experiment with using different liquids, such as kefir or cranberry juice. Or try adding protein powder for a protein boost or some vanilla extract if you enjoy that flavor.

Do peach and pineapple go together?
Yes! Peaches and pineapples are a delicious power team for smoothie recipes, fruit salsa, nice cream, and so much more. There’s only one way to confirm this for sure, though, and that’s to try this recipe yourself!
You can substitute Greek yogurt for the milk in this recipe, but the smoothie will be thicker and tangier. I recommend using sweetened yogurt to help replicate the natural sweetness in milk. I’d also add some pineapple juice to help sweeten the smoothie and make it a bit thinner.
To make a vegan peach pineapple smoothie (or a Paleo peach smoothie), you’ll need to swap out the dairy milk. You could use unsweetened almond milk or coconut water, but soy milk will provide more protein. Note that using a nondairy alternative makes a less voluminous smoothie with stronger and sweeter fruit flavors.
The answer to whether something is “good for you” depends on your nutritional needs and how the food is made. Some pineapple smoothies contain a lot of empty calories from heavy sugar and low fiber fruit juice. This pineapple smoothie recipe is healthier in the sense it has no added sugar and uses whole fruit.
According to Monash University, pineapples and lactose-free milk are low FODMAPs, thus it’s easy to make a pineapple smoothie low fodmap. Peaches, however, are not low fodmap, so you will need to find a substitute fruit. You could add more pineapple, or use another fruit low in fodmaps, like cantaloupe.
Pineapple, peach, and dairy milk are not keto-friendly ingredients. To make a keto peach pineapple smoothie, you will need to use peach and pineapple extracts. You’ll also need to use a low carb milk alternative for your low carb peach smoothie, and you may want to add a keto sugar substitute for sweetness.

Peach Pineapple Smoothie (Low-Calorie, No Added Sugar!)
- ½ cup frozen chopped pineapple (very ripe)
- ½ cup frozen chopped peaches
- ¾ cup milk, 2%
- ½ teaspoon orange zest (I loved this, but skip it if you're more sensitive to bitter flavors than average)
- I recommend using a food processor or high-speed blender with a minimum 10-cup capacity for this recipe. This gives the ingredients lots of room to puree and get whipped up, making the airy, "fluffy" dessert pictured.
- Put the frozen pineapple, frozen peaches, milk, and zest in the food processor and blend until smooth. The volume expands to fill the food processor. You may need to stop your food processor to scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula if ingredients are sticking.
- Divide the smoothie into two large glasses and serve with spoons or wide-width straws. These should be eaten immediately because they lose volume if they melt.
- If you do have leftovers, you can freeze them in popsicle molds. Enjoy!
