It’s delicious, promise!
200ml of a fresh juice of your choice – orange or apple juice work really well. Throw in a handful of washed strawberries (ideally frozen) and 4-5 basil leaves (or to taste).
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend to your desired consistency. Add ice cubes to thicken if you like.
Why are strawberries so good for you?
Packed with vitamin C, but not really a fruit at all !
In season from the end of May through to the end of August, they are a fantastic source of vitamin C – just 5 strawberries could give you your recommended daily intake. They are also rich in vitamin K, essential for healthy bones and blood clotting. Strawberries are also packed full of anti-oxidants, good for your skin and some with anti-cancer properties.
Interesting fact: did you know that the strawberry plant is actually a member of the rose family? They are not technically fruit – the true fruits of the strawberry plant are actually the small seeds which coat the outer surface of the strawberry.
