My two kids love smoothies. Whenever we go to the gym and pass by the cafe, they would say “Mommy…can I drink some smoothie”. I looked at the fridge and saw some leftover fresh basil. The next thing I knew, I had a blender in front of me with some Mandarin oranges and yogurt and start whirring away.
To my delight, it was actually pretty refreshing. My two kids love this basil Mandarin orange smoothie. They couldn’t be happier to see smoothie 🙂
- 2 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt or you can use the sweetened yogurt
- 2 cups fresh basil leaves
- 4 Mandarin oranges peeled
- 2 cups ice
- In a blender, combine the yogurt, basil, Mandarin oranges, and ice. Blend until smooth and frothy. Pour into individual serving glasses/jars and serve immediately
Besides, my kids are digging anything in a jar these days 😉
