My Strawberry Basil Smoothie is packed with sweet red berries, lightly floral basil, and tangy yogurt. It is finished with a handful of iron-packed spinach to give this delicious and unique treat a healthy punch.

Hi friends!  Today is another video day on Running in a Skirt! eeeeeehhhh!!!!

I took my camera out of the office and into the kitchen to make a delicious and unique smoothie recipe that I know you will love.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

The combination of adding basil to this smoothie might seem a little strange at first, but it really gives this smoothie a little something special and unique.   The basil is a very subtle flavor and not overpowering at all.

My video also includes some of my favorite smoothie making tips!  I hope you enjoy!

If you wanted to put even more nutrients into this smoothie you could add chia seeds, flax seeds or even your favorite protein powder. Just remember anything you add will impact the overall calorie count of the drink.

So bright and delicious. The basil adds a very subtle floral note that I just love.

I hope you do too!

Recipe Notes

If you use o% yogurt and 30 calorie milk this smoothie will have approximately 230 calories. You can sub stevia for the honey for fewer calories.

Have a great day, dear reader.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow because it is Fashion Friday and THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!!  In honor of the new season I’m sharing some of the biggest spring trends this year.

Your turn!

Have you ever put herbs in your smoothies?
