5–10 fresh basil leaves (optional, for extra flavor)
1 cup coconut milk
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon honey (use maple syrup for vegan)
1. Combine the blackberries, basil, coconut milk, banana, and honey or maple syrup in the pitcher of your blender. Process the ingredients on high for 60 seconds. 2. Divide the mixture between two glasses and serve cold.
Store any leftovers in a tightly-sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
You can use frozen blueberries, but then you’ll need to add about 1/2 cup of water to make sure the smoothie is the right consistency.
Substitute maple syrup for the honey if you are vegan.
Add unsweetened protein powder to make this a well balanced meal replacement.
