This smoothie might suprise you, because it combines sweet and tart, creamy and fresh. It is loaded with healthy beneficial greens and superfoods and at the same time gives you all the fruit you need in the morning. This smoothie will make your taste buds smile and your body cleansed and relaxed. 

The special ingredients in this smoothie are basil and spirulina. Basil contains loads of flavonoids, which protect you at the cellular level, as well as volatile oils, which have anti-bacterial properties. Spirulina is a green-blue algae and is the beta-carotene richest food. Beta-carotene is an important antioxidant and is suggested to be an anti-cancer food. Plus Spirulina is a very good protein source, with 60% of its dry weight being protein.

Basil and spirulina are balanced in this smoothie with fresh juicy oranges and creamy almond milk. Thus, this smoothie is a real healthy protein bomb. This is a great green smoothie to start the day with as it is fresh, nourishing, sweet and tart. Get your greens on :)

32 oz

handful basil leaves
2 T spirulina (I used JumpUp and GoGo GO GREEN)
3 medium oranges, peeled
1 cup of baby spinach
1 medium banana
1 inch ginger
pinch cinnamon powder
1 cup almond milk

Blend everything and enjoy!
