As soon as the temperatures go up and the sun rises earlier week by week, I crave fresh fruity food!
After my trip to new york in 2010 I was so curious and just could not stand one more day without a blender. A number of experiments with waaay too green or flaky smoothies followed. Yet step by step I managed to rule the art of making creamy & perfectly balanced smoothies!
I like to combine seasonal fruits with a few hidden greens. According to the time of year you can create that certain something with added ice cubes or spices. This smoothie matches the beginning of the strawberry-season, it’s delightful creamy with a special taste thanks to the basil!
Enjoy the upcoming summer with a big glas of healthy freshness & pretty berries!

STRAWBERRY BASIL SMOOTHIE
I blend up an extra batch and fill it into a popsicle mold ( smoothies
based on nutmilk turn into wonderful ice cream)
1 cup strawberries, fresh/frozen
1 ripe banana, frozen
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp lime juice
8 basil leaves
1 tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1 handfull spinach, fresh
Put all ingredients into your blender, start with the banana and almond milk. Blend on high power for 2-3 minutes until well combined. Enjoy immediately!
