Getting all your fruits in during the day can be rough, but with this Tropical Pineapple Juice, you can get all your servings in one glass!
Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how happy I am to be back! I pretty much took two whole weeks off from blogging, social media, and all the other behind-the-scenes work that happens here at Happy Food Healthy Life so I could enjoy the holidays and my family. Sure, there were posts and Facebook updates here and there, but nothing that took much time away from my family and my “me time.”
But, I have to tell you. Last Wednesday, on New Year’s Eve, after an awesome workout, I was in the shower, and the brainstorming began.
(Is it just me, or does your best thinking happen in the shower too??)
Anyway, I was just thinking about all the healthy recipes I wanted to create, eat, and share with you. This combination of fresh fruit was just begging for me to turn it into a juice. And I knew I wanted to share it with you because I knew it would be delicious. I wasn’t going to work until the weekend, but I just couldn’t help it! I had to make it and get photos taken for you.
I worked quick because, for one, I was still supposed to be enjoying time off. For two, I really just wanted to drink this juice right away!
Before taking pics of the juice, I took a quick lick off my finger, and oh man! I was instantly dreaming of warmer weather, the beach, and a beautiful sunset over the ocean. The tropical flavors all meddling together in my mouth helped me to forget the ridiculous frigid temps we have going on here in Utah.
So this is it. This is the beginning of a new year. Resolutions and goals have been made. I’m eating healthier this year. Are you? I recommend starting with this juice to get you going on the right track. It can be hard to get all the fruit servings in throughout the day. But with this juice, you can get them all in one glass!
Be sure to come by tomorrow to hear about my goals and aspirations for the upcoming year. It’s going to be a long post, but one that I’ve been meaning to write for a long time.

WHAT I USED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE:
Blendtec Blender: My Blendtec blender is my most used, most cherished item in my kitchen. Heck, I even took it on vacation with me! That’s how much I can’t live without it!
To get the best results with your smoothies and so many other awesome recipes, using a Blendtec is key! I know they’re pricey, but let me give you a little hint…
They retail for $500-700, but buying a refurbished Blendtec will only cost you $279! That’s seriously a steal for the value.
I have a refurbished Blendtec and it’s never caused me any problems, and I’ve heard the same from everyone else who owns one.
