Pineapple-Basil Smoothie (pictured above)

While it might seem strange to add a savory herb to a smoothie, basil has a slight licorice note, and in small quantities it adds an exotic flavor.


1 c coconut milk

1 banana

1½ c frozen pineapple chunks

2 basil leaves, torn

⅛ tsp peeled and grated ginger, optional

ADD all of the ingredients to the blender, starting with the coconut milk. Cover and blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
