Does this combination sound weird? Maybe a little bit, but the basil is what sets this smoothie apart and makes it so delicious. On top of that it’s so easy to make with only 4 ingredients. I love tasty food like this. Few ingredients, takes only minutes to make. What’s not to like?

for 1 person – all you need is…
1 cup of either fresh or frozen blueberries. Please note, if you want that blue-ish color use frozen blueberries. It’s like the frozen blueberries gives out more color than fresh berries, which gives more of a brown-ish feel to it.
1 banana
4-5 sprigs of basil, similar to a large handful of basil leaves
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of coconut water (you can substitute the coconut water with regular water, which makes is less sweet, but just a bit less sweeter)

Blend all ingredients to a smoothie and drink straight away with a festive straw.

Note: You can use all kinds of black berries for this smoothie. A frozen portion of a “forest berry blend” will also do the trick perfectly.
