Level of Difficulty: Flipping a switch
Pots/Pans Used: 1 blender
1 cup spinach
3-4 large basil leaves
1 cup frozen blueberries
2 sliced rings of pineapple (plus some juice)
1 cup plain soymilk
I'm on a healthy food kick right now (knock on wood) and I recenlty stocked up on everything I needed to make green smoothies for breakfast. Ironically, this turned out to be a blue smoothie, but it still has enough green ingredients to make your body love you. I got the idea to add basil after having a green smoothie at a raw restaurant that consisted of spinach, basil, parsley and various fruits. It was delicious! I have to say the same applies for this little creation. Luckily, there is hardly any prep, and it's a good way to get some fruits and veggies in on a day that you haven't been very kind to your bodacious bod. Lemme know what you think...
All you've gotta do is throw it all in a blender and ta da!
