These last few days have been CRAZY.
Like Aerosmith crazy. I wish.
As much as I would’ve loved to be Alicia Silverstone or Liv Tyler in that video, and do all those crazy things
like being in a strip club and driving a car in the sun, the sad truth is: I am not.
Instead I was stuck here behind closed doors for about 3 days, making my blog and trying to put every detail into place.
And now I’m very happy with it. True it might have cost me 20 hours less sleep and 3-days sun deprivation, but who’s counting?
I wasn’t the only one thrilled with the results of my website: all the spammers who took it down for 12 hours seemed to really like it as well.
Before I fall asleep in 1 minute, I want to give you the recipe for the basil detox smoothie that saved my life these days.
It’s almost not a smoothie anymore and more like an alcohol-free caipirinha without sugar and whatever they put inside.
Okay. I have actually never had caipirinha. I’m like more pina colada.
But I can guarantee you, this smoothie is more refreshing, delicious and happy making than any alcoholic drink in the entire beautiful universe.
HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS
With basil, lemon and apple this detox smoothie is a perfect way to start your day. It makes you wake up – like that. I just snapped my fingers.
Forget about coffee and all that acidifying crap.
This basil detox smoothie is very refreshing and can even keep a person who hasn’t seen sunshine in 3 days and hasn’t slept in 36 hours, alive, fresh and in quite a good mood. Tested. By me.
This recipe is:
I must admit it’s a little sour, because of the lemons, but this gives it that special something that makes us awake and fresh. Add less lemon if you wish.
My basil detox smoothie also gives a nice glow to the skin of a half asleep person.
Everyone was like – “Look she’s sleeping. But her skin though. It’s glowing.”
They’re all just jealous.
Easy basil, apple and lemon detox drink to make you feel light and refreshed!
- 1-2 Lemons
- 2 Apples
- handful basil leaves
- Squeeze the lemons to lemon juice.
- Wash and cube the apples
- Wash the basil leaves
- Put everything in a blender, add water (I added 3-4 cups) and blend until smooth. (Choose speed depending on your blender, I blended it at low speed - as far as I know and from my own experience this is the best to get smoother texture).
- If you think it's too thick, add more water and blend again.
I added 2 lemons, but the drink was a little sour. I enjoyed it, but if you don't enjoy sour recipes too much, I would suggest starting with one lemon and adjusting from there. You can always add more lemon if needed.
