Berry Cherry Pineapple Smoothie (vegan + superfoods)

Berry Cherry Pineapple Smoothie

Around these parts, we like to have smoothies for breakfast. If you were to observe me making a smoothie, you would notice that I add blueberries, strawberries, cherries and/or pineapples to almost all of my smoothies. You would notice that 99% of my smoothies are vegan and that my liquid of choice is non-dairy milks such as almond or coconut. You would probably also notice that I often become extremely angry with my blender. It’s highly moody and often doesn’t want to work – as in it doesn’t want to blend properly unless I add just the right amount of liquid (or more, more always works) to it. It isn’t a bad blender. In fact, it’s a highly rated blender that Ken and I decided to invest in after our other blender died. It works. It works good and makes delicious smoothies. I’ll admit that my troubles are probably user error generated.

Gah! Blender, one day I will own you and you will never ever give me blending troubles again.

We’re almost there, actually. The recent berry smoothies I’ve developed, like this Berry Cherry Pineapple Smoothie, have been perfected and blend perfectly in my moody little blender.

What do I love about this Berry Cherry Pineapple Smoothie?

  • It’s vegan.
  • It’s packed with superfoods (gogi berries + sunflower seeds).
  • It’s made with a few of my favorite fruits – cherries, blueberries and pineapple
  • It’s flavorful and slightly sweet without added sugar
  • It’s easy to make and I can take it to work with me.

  1. 1. The COLOR of this smoothie is SO GORGEOUS!
    2. With all those superfoods, I can practically feel my skin glowing already!
    3. We make smoothies for breakfast like it’s our job (which it is sometimes), so this is happening! Pinned!

  2. Do you have a blendtec blender?! I’m giving one away on my blog right now if you don’t! A moody blender is no fun!!

    • YES! The blender I have is a Blendtec blender. I’ve read that they are finicky and you have to use just the right amount of liquid (or more) in order for them to blend perfectly. It’s a little annoying but I’m getting used to it now and have learned how much liquid ratio to frozen/solid ratio I need to use.

      Thanks for stopping by and for suggesting the giveaway, Beth! :)

  3. With this smoothie, I can get my 5 servings of fruits in in one big big gulp…ok, maybe 3 or 4 – but wow – so much goodness is packed into each!

  4. Love the superfoods, colors and flavors in these smoothies! Gorgeous! Pinned!

  5. First off…talk about stunning! That color is gorg. And second, I love the cherries and pineapples in this smoothie! I am a sucker for anything with those two!

  6. Dear Julie, What a gorgeous smoothie this is. I would love this for breakfast every day. Pineapple is a weakness of mine. That and cherries. My blender is also moody. (Or perhaps it’s the user???) I’ve never used gogi berries in anything and this is the perfect smoothie to try them out!

    • Ah pineapple is one of my weaknesses too, Allie! It’s also my favorite fruit. I could eat tons of it raw, all by itself! Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope you have a good evening. :)
