Blackberry, Basil & Chia Smoothie
To make this blackerry, basil & chia smoothie, you'll add a frozen banana, water, fresh blackberries, ice, basil leaves, and chia seeds to a blender. Blend on high for a minute or two, pour into a glass, and slurp away. There's something wintry about this smoothie, and the chia seeds lend a richness that's filling and satisfying. The basil adds a pop of freshness to cut through the creaminess of the banana, and you can easily swap the blackberries for another berry that you have on hand (strawberries and blueberries are great options).
- 1 ripe and speckled banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen
- ¾ cup filtered water
- ⅔ cup fresh blackberries
- ½ cup ice
- ¼ cup basil leaves
- 2 soft and sticky Medjool dates, pitted
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender. Blend on for 1-2 minutes or until completely smooth.
Pour into a glass, and serve immediately.
