Basil Yogurt Smoothie

We have been having a very hot winter here in Los Angeles, so I decided it was time to cool down with a smoothie. But not the super sugary kind that gives you a sugar high and causes you to crash by 4pm. This smoothie is as good for you as it is good! With yogurt, basil, and honey it is a fabulous mid-day snack for relaxing on a weekend or even to serve with a sweet breakfast — AND you can’t beat the color! It is simply beautiful!
- 1 cup basil leaves
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup plain yogurt (I love to use Greek)
- 1 tablespoon of honey, dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water)
This smoothie could not be easier to make – so simple! Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into tall glass, garnish with basil leaf, and serve! Yum!
