Spring is upon us and the warmer weather is making me smoothie hungry! Smoothies are perfect for packing in fruits and veggies on the go. This recipe provides layers of healthy fats, protein, antioxidants and flavor. It is perfect for breakfast, lunch or a mid-day snack while simultaneously giving your body energy.


  • 2-3 handfuls of spinach
  • 3 fresh basil leaves
  • ½ c fresh blueberries (or frozen with no sugar added)
  • 1 serving of whey or hemp protein powder (I prefer chocolate for this recipe)
  • 1 tbsp of natural almond butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 6 – 8 oz water
  • 6-6 ice cubes
  • dash of both cinnamon & nutmeg


Place spinach, basil and water in blender and blend until smooth.  Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.  Pour into your favorite smoothie glass and enjoy!
