Strawberry Basil Smoothie

Posted on

It takes a while for strawberry season to peak this far north. When it does, we like to take the little men out to the fields for some berry-picking family fun. Ideally, we would put all of their little hands to work at picking a bulk quantity of sweet, ripe berries. The reality was that my husband ended up picking 10 pounds of strawberries while the boys wandered the fields dining on an all-you-can-eat buffet of fresh-picked berries. It’s a good thing my husband enjoys picking berries!

I promptly washed and froze half of our berry loot for one of my sons’ favorite treats in whole world…smoothies! They go absolutely bonkers over smoothies. I’m thinking about sneaking some veggies in the next time; perhaps making a strawberry spinach smoothie. But, for today, we’re just going to accent our sweet berries with a touch of fresh, summery basil!

When it comes to making smoothies, I prefer to skip the ice. I don’t care for the texture or the watered-down taste. To achieve an equally thick, frosty smoothie without the ice, simply freeze your fruit. Combine your frozen fruit with a bit of creamy Greek yogurt, a touch of honey, and a few leaves of fresh basil for a delicious and nutritious treat!

Strawberry Basil Smoothies

  • 2 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, frozen
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Easy as that.
