Buzz Me Some Breaky: Wednesday, as Mrs Fawlty would say……

BASIL!

Yup, for hump day we get a little crazy with….

Raw Epicurean’s Banana Basil Smoothie!

According to Worlds Healthiest Foods basil is an antibacterial, is good for your heart, and is a good source of iron, and calcium, potassium and vitamin C!  Also it tastes and smells like heaven.  Yeah, i can hear you saying….”heaven in my PASTA SAUCE….not in my smoothie!!”  But seriously, what have you got to lose?  2 bananas and some basil that you were going to let go bad after using it in your pasta sauce?  Hmmm?

2 ripe bananas, peeled, chopped
10-12 basil leaves
¼ cup filtered water
2 tablespoons agave

Blend all ingredients in a blender until liquefied and smooth.

Serve immediately or chill the smoothie in the refrigerator for an hour or until ready to serve.

Ok!  This was really yummy!  Seriously!  A tad sweet so next time i’ll cut back on the agave but other than that, while not in the same yumtastic category as the Elvis Elixir, it was really good for something so good for you!  Give it a buzz and amaze your friends with how rad you are sipping your bright green banana basil smoothie….I dare you.

"Manuel! Where's my smoothie?!"
