Basil isn’t just for pasta sauce, pizza or curry. We like to use Thai basil in this smoothie when we can find it at our local farmers market (the more purple leaves are a dead giveaway). Thai basil is bolder, with a slightly more anise flavor than traditional sweet Italian basil you may already have growing in your windowsill. Traditional basil will still, of course, be lovely!
