Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie

It's been three days since I started the Sugar Crush 30 day Sugar-Free Challenge and I'm doing better than I expected and I've been making healthier food choices. My body hasn't went into a downward spiral sugar shock (yet) and I'm still alive despite not having any cookies in the last few days. {whispering}....I still have some Red Velvet Oreos in my kitchen cupboard that I haven't touched yet!

This smoothie is one of those healthier food choices. It has banana, pineapple, blueberries, chia seeds, and Greek yogurt. Yep, that's it! No milk, no almond milk nor coconut milk in this smoothie. I've found that the chia seeds work great for thickening up smoothies so you don't need any milk.

It's great for anyone who's eating clean, gluten-free, or just watching their waistline as this smoothie has 595 calories with 6.5 grams of fat. Plus it has all those antioxidants from the chia seeds and blueberries.

It makes for a delicious, nutritious breakfast when you're on the go and don't have time to make anything in the morning. Or as an afternoon snack to perk yourself up during those slump hours between 1 and 5 p.m., when cravings hit you the hardest.

Whenever you drink this smoothie, you'll feel a whole lot better drinking this than having those cookies sitting on your kitchen counter {smile}.
