frozen mango pieces
white sugar, or to taste
This was absolutely delicious. But it is fitting that basil is the first word in this recipe's name; you can really taste it. I will make again, however I plan on using artificial sweetener to lower the calories.
Delicious.. I made this with blueberries since I had them in the fridge and I used splenda for the sweetner.
This is AWESOME!! I would have never guessed that basil would work in a smoothie and it takes great in this drink!! I added a few more leaves to make it take better! My strawberries were frozen-not the mango and I added some ice cubes. Very good drink!!
This is a fabulous smoothie. I love the addition of the basil which is clearly discernable in this drink. I would not have thought basil would work in the drink but is absolutely does. This recipe is really, really nice – very refreshing and delicious.
We have an overabundance of basil, so I decided to try this. Definitely interesting. I used Truvia instead of sugar. Came out pretty good, but not sure I like the combination of basil/mango. Thanks anyhow :)
This was amazing! I had an overripe mango I had to use so I made this smoothie. It is so refreshing! This is going to be a staple for me this summer. It was perfect as is, though I used less sugar. You could easily add other fruit to this. I think any tropical fruit would go nicely like banas, oranges, or pienapple.
I used the basil, mango, and water as written, then tasted. It was great like that. Then I added a banana instead of the strawberries. I didn't feel the need to add sugar or ice at all. It was pretty and delicious! Thanks for the recipe! :o)
I think it was great but in my opinion use less water!
