Lemon Basil Smoothie

This Lemon Basil Smoothie is a nice refreshing green smoothie with lemon, basil and a hint of sweetness from the vanilla. The colder this smoothie the better.

I love a classic green smoothie, but it can be repetitive if you stick to the same recipe. I add herbs to my smoothie when I want to change things up. This parsley smoothie is delicious, but this lemon basil smoothie is my favorite for a fresh, tangy smoothie.

The first time I enjoyed this smoothie was in a restaurant in Brussels and I was pleasantly surprised. I had to recreate this at home, and since then, this has been my go-to smoothie recipe.

I can’t wait for warmer days, because this smoothie is extra tasty when it is served super cold. I had to make this smoothie at home and share it with you.

This smoothie doesn’t contain any sweeteners, but yet the taste is so sweet and fresh.

This smoothie recipe is very accessible as you will only need 5 ingredients. This smoothie is so delicious and without any added sugars. Yup, you don’t even need to add dates. Trust me on that one; it’s really refreshing and sweet.

Lemons and basil are such a perfect combination. You will want to make this lemon basil smoothie a lot during the warmer months.

Smoothie tips

Use ripe bananas, fresh basil, and fresh lemons to make this smoothie the best ever.

Optional additions

This smoothie recipe is perfect as it is, but feel free to add a bit of frozen pineapple or use coconut water instead of water. You can also add in some fats or proteins if you wish, such as chia seeds.

Play around with it and tweak it to make it your perfect smoothie, but start with this recipe. It’s truly delicious!

This smoothie is:

Perfectly sweet
Refreshing
Satisfying
Accessible
Has the potential to become your every day smoothie recipe
