Strawberry Basil Lemonade Protein Bowl

Strawberry Basil Lemonade Protein Shake

This shake is unexpectedly delicious. Everyone’s heard of strawberry lemonade, but few people have tasted the joy of mixing basil (a savory, fresh, and powerful herb) with strawberries (a sweet, strong and tangy berry). Please try this! And, of course, use only fresh basil. You will be pleasantly surprised.
