Smoothies are great on the go, but if you have time to eat at home the smoothie bowl is the way to go because you can add toppings with different textures, it will be more satisfying and might make you feel fuller.
The fresh basil along with the bright red strawberries and beets in this one is such a delicious combination.
5 frozen strawberries
4 basil leaves
1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped roasted beets
3/4 cup romaine lettuce
3/4 cup honey greek yogurt

1 tsp ground flax seeds (optional)
