About the recipe

This is my favorite smoothie recipe that’s on repeat all summer long. I love making it for friends and family and hearing their exclamation of surprise when they first try it – the basil provides a unique, refreshing twist to this tasty green smoothie. It’s sweet, herbaceous and keeps you coming back for more.


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • ¼-inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 1-2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 1 pitted date (optional)
  • 4-5 Willo basil leaves
  • 1 handful Willo kale or spinach

Add all ingredients except the almond milk to a high-powered blender. Starting with 1 cup of almond milk, blend until you’ve reached your desired consistency, adding more almond milk as needed. Blend until fully combined. Scoop into a serving bowl and top with your desired toppings (we like fresh fruit, chia seeds, and dried mulberries).
