Everyone loves fresh herbs, right? Lately I have added these fresh herbs in my smoothie and I think I have found the perfect smoothie recipe!
The secret ingredient in this smoothie is the use of herbs. You can modify this recipe by altering the herb. I used lemon balm which is an excellent herb and gives a distinct flavour to the smoothie. By using different herbs you can really top up your smoothie and gain many health benefits. I personally love using herbs in every cooking!
