blueberry pineapple basil smoothie

i could live on these healthy little shakes as they are delicious and so simple to make! the key ingredient that makes these smoothies so healthy is the mandatory spinach, you get your daily dose of greens and you can’t even taste them. basil is the star ingredient in this one which you can taste, it provides a nice peppery punch complimenting the sweetness from the frozen fruit. i strongly suggest that you try this one!

ingredients: {serves one}
• a handful of organic baby spinach, washed and dried
• a handful of organic sweet basil, washed and dried
• 3 T or so of 0% greek yogurt {fage is my favorite}
• 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
• 1/4 cup frozen pineapple
• 1 cup or so of coconut or almond milk
• 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder {sun warrior is a great one}
• a drizzle of agave nectar
• 1 shake of cinnamon

to do:
toss all of the ingredients into a blender or vitamix and blend until slightly smooth but still a bit chunky. serve immediately and enjoy!
