This was a good smoothie, but more than that... it was nice base to create a fantastic smoothie. I started with all of the ingredients but I only used 3/4 cup milk. I had a taste. Per the notes below, I added some vanilla yogurt. I had another taste. Then, I added a large splash of orange juice and a little more pineapple. At that point, it was perfect for me. You could modify if to your tastes even more by adding mango, papaya or other tropical fruits. Bottom Line: This is a fun recipe to play with and I'd definitely make it again.

How To Make A Pineapple Pleaser Smoothie
Drain pineapple. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
For a creamier consistency, cut the amount of milk in half and add a 6 ounce container of plain or vanilla yogurt.
You could also use orange juice to replace some or all of the milk.
Canned pineapple and a fresh banana are the key components of this quick and easy smoothie.
