Juicy Pineapple-Cucumber Smoothie

Juicy pineapple smoothie recipe

A cleansing fruit and veggie duo — pineapple and cucumber — combine in a light, ultra-refreshing cross between a smoothie and a juice. This goes down easy, so I’ve devised this recipe to yield about a quart. Share it, or sip it down slowly when you need a day to have more liquid and less food.

Makes: 1 quart plus

  • 1 medium pineapple, peel removed, cored, and cut into chunks
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled or not, as desired (leave peel only if unwaxed)
  • 8 ounces coconut water (or just use water)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • Agave nectar, as needed

Combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until completely smooth. Add a little agave nectar for extra sweetness as desired. Serve at room temperature or over ice.

    I’ve made this one a couple of times and I love the cucumber and pineapple flavor combo but I’m not a huge smoothie fan. Instead of blending the fruit, I use the Raaw Foods cucumber/pineapple juice available at Whole Foods ( It’s additive free and though it’s not raw, it is only “lightly” processed. Anyway, the recipe tastes great with it and clean up is a bit faster.

    I just made this smoothie minus the sweetner. It was fabulous.

    Can this be refrigerated and used over a few days?

      I would say within a couple of days, as fresh fruit/vegetable juices lose their value the longer they stand.

    I made this today, although I used water as had no coconut water. Left out the agar.I liked it although suspect my cucumber was a little larger than the amount of pineapple I had. Will definitely try it again with coconut water and a tad less cucumber. My son didn’t like it due to the cucumber.
