This quick strawberry basil smoothie with a touch of black pepper is a perfect snack, a refreshing dessert or a pre-work out drink packed with protein and healthy ingredients. A fresh twist on a smoothie!
As you may remember from my Strawberry parfait post, we’ve had a lot of strawberries this year. So many that at one point I did not know how to handle them. I mean, there’s only so much one could eat. We’ve used our strawberries in so many recipes, I think I’m all set for a whole year, I don’t need any more strawberries in my diet!

One of the great ways we consumed our strawberries was through smoothies and I particularly loved the strawberry basil smoothie recipe with black pepper. I love spicy food and I’m a sucker for refreshing, cooling beverages, things this smoothie delivered in just a few minutes.
Basil brings a fresh flavor and adds up to the spiciness just a bit and the sweetness from strawberries matches the peppery taste of basil perfectly, an unexpected but delightful combination. The whole smoothies is packed of healthy nutrients and a great source of protein.

Hm, never had it with basil before…must try. Thanks for sharing this recipe with Thursday Favorite Things!
I really love how playful these three flavors are together…I’ve had them in salads and bruschetta…but I’m very pleasantly surprised with this new twist! Can’t wait to give it a try!
I’ve had a cocktail with this flavor combination that was really good! I love this healthier, every day version!
Found you at #FoodieFriDIY :)
AWw, thank you so much Erin :)
I use a pinch of pepper in a lot of my fruity recipes, too. I learned how to do it from a woman who runs an Indian recipe blog. It works!
Thanks Lydia. When it comes to adding flavor and giving a tasty twist to food, Indians know better :)
