This Green Smoothie with Basil is refreshing, hydrating and very, very tasty. It has spinach and basil, both of which are great sources of Vitamin K, which is important for bone health and blood clotting (indeed, it’s named after the German koagulation). There’s also coconut water, which is great for hydration, making this a fantastic post-workout smoothie. Plus there are Chia Bia chia seeds for good measure, just because they’re amazing.

I am very interested in trying this out! Mainly because there’s basil in it which sounds unusual but that just makes me want it more. Does the basil taste very strong?

Mmmm… sounds delish. Do you think Thai basil would work, or would it be too overpowering?
