Basil, Kale and Blueberry Smoothie

 
 

Basil in a smoothie?! No, I'm not crazy. This is really delicious. Combined with the blueberries and kale this drink packs quite the punch. Basil is known for its anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. Kale and spinach are packed full of iron, vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and fibre. Kale is also high in calcium. I could go on! At the end of the day, this is a super healthy smoothie that is loaded with amazing things that your body will thank you for.
