We already knew the Eagles’ Lane Johnson had a philanthropic heart; his “underdog” t-shirts have raised over $100,000 to benefit Philly public schools. Now, the Eagles offensive tackle is partnering with Fuel — those healthy cafes where everything is under 500 calories — on a smoothie that’ll benefit Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Johnson himself helped design the recipe for the smoothies — called the Green Machine — which include kale, spinach, pineapple, honey, and banana. Johnson says he’s a regular at Fuel, and this smoothie let him combine a bunch of his fave foods. The smoothies range in price from $4.19 to $6.19, and between now and the Super Bowl, $2 of every sale will go straight to CHOP.

“This smoothie is special to me because it contains all of my favorite flavors and ingredients and is Eagles’ green,” said Johnson in a press release. “This partnership lets me give back to one of my favorite local charities, CHOP. I have always loved kids and wanted to help out for those less fortunate, ill, or in need.”

The smoothie is now on the menu at Fuel’s Center City, University City, and East Passyunk locations. Between now and the Super Bowl, Fuel is donating proceeds; after the Super Bowl, the smoothie will remain on the menu for at least a week. And bonus: If the Eagles win the Super Bowl, Fuel will give away free small Green Machine smoothies from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on February 5.
