Costco Green Smoothie (Spinach, Grape, and Pineapple)

Ok, ok, I know, the name of this post might throw you off a little.  Here’s the story:

We were shopping at Costco one weekend and came across a Vitamix demonstration.  The associate who was doing the demonstration whipped up an amazing smoothie made of spinach, grapes, and pineapple.  My husband, who generally is averse to anything green, loved it! Even my son loved it!  I tried countless times to recreate it at home, but I just wasn’t able to get the ratios down correctly.  Several weeks ago I stumbled upon this and now we’re able to enjoy the same smoothie, or Green Juice as the Little One likes to call it, at home 🙂

  1. I have been thinking of making green smoothie for myself for quite sometime after hearing all the good stuff about it. But always hesitated thinkin it will taste bitter coz if the green leaves in it. Wanted to ask does the spinach make the drink bitter?
