Strawberry Basil Smoothie
Adding herbs to any shake adds wonderful flavors and amazing medicinal powers. Basil is one of our favorite aromatic and flavorful herbs to use in sauces, salads, and now—shakes! Basil adds a delicious complex flavor to your sweet desserts or shakes. It is part sweet and part spicy, with notes of anise, mint, and cloves. Basil is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, as well as anti-aging compounds.
Strawberries are a great source of immune-boosting vitamin C and polyphenols. Cauliflower is also a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and more. It’s high in fiber and, as a cruciferous vegetable, it’s detoxifying, too!
This shake recipe is flexible based on what you have on hand. Strawberries could be replaced with blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries. Frozen cauliflower provides a perfect creamy texture and could be replaced with frozen zucchini. If you prefer a lighter shake, you could use water instead of non-dairy milk.
