Ok time to divulge my summer obsession, fresh Basil! I’m a regular shake drinker and having my breakfast shake everyday is one thing I stay committed to. I love the way it makes me feel, the fuel it gives my body and all the health benefits that come along with it. Most importantly I love the way it tastes!

My morning shake recipe changes from time to time, but this summer my protein shake got a little fresher. I started using a recipe that includes fresh basil, freshly squeezed lemon, frozen strawberries and Arbonne’s vegan, gluten free Protein Powder .

The blended combo is deliciously fresh and savoury all at once. If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your protein shake or smoothie this recipe is a must try. A bonus in the summer months is that you can grow your own fresh basil in your garden, so simple and super healthy.

Basil has some incredible health benefits including but not limited to:

  1. Contains powerful Antioxidants
  2. Being an Anti-inflammatory Herb
  3. Contains Natural Anti-bacterial properties
  4. Acts as a Natural Adaptogen (stress managing herb)

This is truly a wonderful snack or meal for the whole family to enjoy!
