Berry & Basil Smoothie Bowl

Have any of y’all tried adding basil to your green smoothies?  It is delightful.  The herb adds a refreshing tone to the taste, and extra greens never hurt anyone.  Try this one for yourselves!  I also recommend using raspberries as the frozen berry.

Ingredients

  • 3-5 cups spinach (depending on how green you want it)
  • ½ cup basil leaves, packed
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 3-4 frozen bananas
  • Juice from 2 oranges

Method

  1. Place the greens into a blender and blend until smooth
  2. Add frozen fruit, bananas, and orange juice
  3. Blend until creamy (help the blender out by thawing the frozen fruit for about 15 minutes before blending)
  4. Scoop smoothie into a bowl
  5. Top with extra fruit, coconut shreds, or anything else you want to dress up the smoothie
  6. Enjoy!

“Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.  The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.  And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.”
-Genesis 1:11-13
