Strawberry Basil Green Smoothie

Posted by on Jan 19, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

The idea for this smoothie came from a cooking show, where someone mentioned in a matter-of-fact kind of way that strawberry and basil always tastes great. Wait, strawberry and basil? I had never thought to combine the two, but of course I was immediately intrigued and I just had to try it.  

And wow! It is hard to describe but it tastes surprisingly fresh and sweet. The basil adds some complexity to this otherwise berrylicious smoothie that elevates it from great to amazing. 

Strawberries and basil! Oh my!
