Remember Strawberry Quik? This is better! It’s cool, creamy, and delicious, and the basil adds a nice counterpoint to the berries. Any other berries would work nicely, too.

Recipe Directions

1. Make your almond milk by blending almonds, water, vanilla, and agave (or another sweetener of choice).

2. Strain the almond pulp out and return the milk to the blender.

3. Add the strawberries and basil leaves. Blend it up and enjoy!

I have made a strawberry milk before, but I never would have thought of basil - weird? Or maybe it's really good!? Anyway, I have been wanting almond milk today and wanted something else to add - thanks for the idea!

When you say vanilla, do you mean vanilla extract?

I made this last night without the basil and with dates to sweeten - it was good. I drank half that way and then added chocolate, banana, almond butter and ice to the rest to make a yummy shake! Thanks again!
