Strawberry Basil Smoothie

Strawberry Basil Smoothie‘Tis the season for ALL the berries. And ALL the herbs. So why not combine them in a sweet, thick, delicious smoothie?!

I think this is one of my favorite smoothies to date, and has been on repeat all summer long. Strawberries are SO dang good right now, so I’m consuming them in mass quantities while I can, and I suggest you take advantage of berry season too!

You should, you will love it. Basil goes so well with pretty much any fruit, but I especially love it combined with strawberries. It adds a really refreshing element to an otherwise average smoothie. Not to mention all of the vitamin K you are getting from it!
