1 tsp. Vanilla extract
½ tsp. Stevia
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks

The brand “Silk” makes an excellent protein nut milk which is made out of cashew and almond milk as well as pea protein. If you cannot find protein nut milk you can substitute with cashew or almond milk, just be aware that it will not contain as much protein. Alternately, you could add a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
Power greens are a blend of spinach, kale and chard. If you cannot find this blend, use your favorite leafy greens.
