Strawberry Basil Immune Boosting Smoothie

By Sara McGlothlin

Oh the immune boosting benefits of basil! This herb is pretty powerful, which is why we suggest adding it into your morning green smoothie. Basil contains essential oil compounds that act as anti-microbial and anti-viral agents. It also comes with a whole host of other benefits: anti-inflammatory, cancer prevention, and liver detoxification to name a few. When paired with strawberries, it results in a refreshing taste that makes you feel as if you are sipping summer. Other nutrient-dense herbs to incorporate are parsley and cilantro. And don’t forget about micro-greens as well!
