  • 1 Ninja Blender (or any brand Blender)
  • 1 additional blender attachment (like a Nutribullet)


  • 2 cups pineapple
  • 1 cup grapes (green and red)
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 whole banana
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 1 ½ cup ice


  • After washing and drying each fruit, add all to the blender and turn on to puree until smoothie consistency, for about 5 minutes.
  • In your smaller blender attachment*, Nutribullet (ish or whatever you have), add ice and smoothie to the 12 oz line. Mix for about 3 - 5 minutes to break down the ice and puree, until smoothie consistency.
  • Grab your glass, mason jar, or whatever you want, pour and enjoy!


*Keeping the ice and smoothie ingredients separate until ready for your smoothie(s) helps to extend the shelf life of the smoothie. Once you add the ice, it'll separate anyway, so why not just wait until you're ready to enjoy a glass of this goodness!

Storage Tips

  • In an airtight container, glass or plastic, OR you can leave it in the blender (as long as the lid is super secure) add the remaining smoothie base, and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days. 
    • Being that the ingredients are fresh, you'll want to trust your eyes and nose to ensure the freshness on day 2. So, if it looks or smells off, toss it.
