Kiwi Basil Smoothie | Easy Sugarfree Smoothies

Generally speaking, Smoothies are between-meal drinks. Or probably one that would drink after a workout, like a protein shake etc. But over the last few weeks, the H and me have had this as a soothing sugarfree after breakfast drink and with the mercury soaring high it makes a great start to the day too. Some basic ingredients and you have a winner on hand. 


One may add sugar or honey to this, but we liked it as it is. Sending this to Blogging Marathon # 41 with this week's recipes of Summer Special. 

Go on, make it and let me know how you enjoyed it. What's your favourite mocktail / summer beverage by the way ? Am keen to know...

Ingredients:
  • Fresh Kiwi (or canned if you are out of season) - 2 medium 
  • Fresh basil leaves - 4 to 6 OR dried basil - 1/2 tsp
