The first time my husband Ted whizzed up this blueberry, apple and basil smoothie, it was Memorial Day weekend, when we'd just planted our basil in the herb garden, and a few leaves needed to be trimmed. On a whim, Ted tossed the leaves into his new blender. Who knew that blueberries and basil could be so happy together? You can use frozen blueberries or fresh, whatever is easiest to find. The fresh herb adds a little savory edge to what would otherwise be a sweet smoothie, just enough but not too much, a bit of brightness that tickles your tongue in a pleasant way. Now, if only we could do something to brighten up the color.
