I have a basic recipe fort smoothies that I embellish on with various things (such as dandelion leaves). I use frozen strawberries, a banana, and kefir and then add other ingredients as desired. This time I used cucumber and basil.
Cucumber Basil Smoothie
4-5 slices cucumber
1 full banana
2 leaves of basil
a handful of frozen strawberries
about 1/2 a cup kefir (don’t bother measuring, just know more kefir = more liquid smoothie)
It was really good. Very cooling on a summer day. There was first the taste of strawberry and then the after taste of basil. The cucumber adds a bit of froth and coolness to the smoothie.
