Recipe: Pineapple Buttermilk Smoothies

You can substitute plain kefir for the buttermilk if you prefer. This smoothie is particularly creamy and delicious when made with Grace Harbor Farms whole-milk buttermilk.

  • 1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Honey, to taste


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Adjust honey to taste. Serve immediately.
