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. Read More

Just a personal preference but I thought the basil tasted bad with the mango. I won't make this again. Read More

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!! Read More

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. Read More

I loved it!!! Made just as written except I used Splenda rather than sugar. Both my mangoes and strawberries were frozen so I did not add the ice cubes. I loved the basil flavor and next time I will add a few more leaves. Read More

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:) Read More

It's a great recipe no need to add sugar as the mango I used was perfectly sweet as is. Read More

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. Read More
