Kiwi Basil Smoothie

My Watermelon Frosty of last weekend seems pretty hard to beat, but this Kiwi Basil Smoothie sure does satisfy my craving for outside-the-box frosty fruit summer sips. I took a hint from my less than pretty Kiwi Watermelon Frosty (I wasn't too impressed with the brown color - although the flavor was fab) and made a few tweaks to blend up this pure kiwi green summer-approved drink.

Poolside Sip. Have your pool boy bring this out to you on a silver platter to you as you sit poolside in the sun, your shades on and glittering pink bikini sparkling in an afternoon sunbeam. Or not. Hmm, I guess that was the scene that flashed through my head as I slurped up this sip at my desk while a tropical island screen saver flashed across my MacPro screen. I'll take what I can get. Recipe..

The flavors: refreshing, creamy cool - perfect pairing for your sunny weekend adventures. Zesty flavor with a mellow aroma of sweet basil.
