Recipe Redux Post # 11- Triple B Snack Smoothie

The Recipe ReDux Theme for March just happened to be “Green with Herb Envy” and we were encouraged to “use fresh green herbs in a non-traditional way”. One of my favorite green herbs is basil and I have been curious about how it would taste in a smoothie. This recipe challenge was the perfect opportunity to try it.  Basil actually worked quite well in the smoothie and gave it a snappy and fresh taste I have use blueberries and strawberries in smoothies before, but never blackberries so I decided to throw them in the mix as well. Add a banana and milk base and voila!!.... behold the triple B smoothie- blackberries, banana and basil (plus milk), a clean, simple and delicious combination.  Hope you try it and also enjoy checking out the other interesting and fun use of green herbs by the rest of the Recipe ReDux group.


½ frozen banana
½ cup fresh blackberries
1-2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
½ cup fat free or low fat milk (I used and suggest  unsweetened almond milk)


Add all the ingredients to a blender and mix on high for 30 seconds to a minute, until well blended. Serve and enjoy.  Note: if the blackberries used are not super sweet, add a tiny bit of your favorite sweetener.

Makes 1 serving

Basil + berries sure sounds like a winner with fellow ReDuxers - looking forward to throwing in a handful into my next smoothie!
