Christmas Smoothie 2A

The combination of basil and lemon may sound strange for a smoothie but it is refreshingly delicious.  With the holidays upon us, this smoothie cuts through all that sugar-overload you may be experiencing.  I taste-tested this one with my kids who raved about it!  With guesses like apple, parsley and grapes, they couldn’t quite figure out what was in it…but they wanted more!  I love the bright green color from the basil and spinach.
