Pop quiz: Do you, and does everyone in your family, always eat the recommended number of servings of fruits and vegetables each day?

Let’s be honest here! If not, this delicious Pineapple Paradise Green Smoothie might be a game-changer for you and yours. I know it is in my household. Whoever thought I could get my husband, Jim, and my toddler, CJ, to drink spinach? Mind blown.

Five simple ingredients blend up to make a delicious, creamy smoothie that tastes like sweet pineapple but has the nutrition of spinach and avocado.

And mind you, Jim doesn’t like avocado. And CJ doesn’t like spinach. Yet, we all guzzle down this green smoothie like it were a milkshake. A CHOCOLATE milkshake. Yes, it really is that delicious.

It also might help if you change the name. In our house, we don’t call it a Green Smoothie… we call it Basketball Juice. That way, while Jim and CJ play basketball, I can provide a refreshing beverage under the guise of “refueling” for sporty reasons. CJ falls for it every time.

Full disclosure: To get the smoothest, creamiest smoothie without pieces of spinach, a high-powered blender is recommended. The two major players here are Blendtec and Vitamix. I belong to the camp of the former, but the latter is also lovely I’m sure. Since buying my Blendtec, I seriously have used it almost every single day. For me, it was worth the price of admission.
