It's no secret that strawberries and basil pair well together.  This smoothie is no exception.  We hope you love this dynamic duo as much as we do for a nourishing meal replacement. 

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup full-fat coconut milk*

1 cup organic strawberries, fresh or frozen

1 scoop vanilla Paleo Meal, Pure Paleo Protein, Organic Pea Protein, or Whey Cool**

A handful of fresh basil

1/2 cup ice

 

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.  If using a high-speed blender, add the protein after the rest of the ingredients are pureed to ensure proteins are not damaged.  Pulse the smoothie to incorporate the delicate proteins.  

*Avocado and filtered water make a nice substitution for milk.  Keep in mind that healthy fats are key for proper body function, blood sugar regulation, and satiety.
