pineapple, spinach, basil smoothie

You won't see a lot of smoothie posts from me because usually I just throw in various frozen fruits, some greens, powders, seeds... But this is a smoothie we used to get sometimes from a raw food restaurant and it's flavors are something I have been craving lately. I have seen similar combinations elsewhere so I think it's kind of a classic these days. If you haven't tried it, I suggest you do. Spinach and banana make it really creamy, and the pineapple just gets lit up by the basil.

1 cup chopped frozen pineapple
1 frozen banana, chopped
1 cup almond milk, or maybe a little more to get it creamy
1-2 basil leaves
1 heaping packed cup of spinach

Everything goes into a blender! Aside from being flavor filled and nutritious, it also makes the most beautiful color green.
