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.
