If you like using berries in your smoothie then you are on the right place. Strawberries are many people’s favourite fruit, and they improve the taste of almost every drink!
You can use fresh or frozen strawberries in this recipe. That’s entirely up to you. If you have a larger amount of strawberries you can freeze them, use them to make a jam, an ice-cream, or some other type of drink.
You will find that this drink contains basil, which may be surprising for many people, but weirdly it works amazing with the strawberry. The flavour of the strawberries will still be present, but the basil will make it fresher.
When you make this drink, you should always put a lot of ice in the drink because the cold water will make your body burn a lot of calories. This is due to the fact that the body uses energy to heat up the water, and therefore you burn more calories. So, be generous when you put the ice.
Why are these ingredients beneficial for you?
Cucumbers are a very refreshing veggie because they contain a lot of water.
Strawberries will boost your energy and add the best flavour to the drink. They also contain a lot of fiber, which is great for the digestion system and speeding up the metabolism.
Basil is a great appetite suppressant, and also prevents your body to retain water. If you have an upset stomach, then you should definitely use basil because it is the best in settling upset tummies.
If you are a regular drinker of soda drinks, you should try replacing them with this infused water drink. Many people say that they have lost around 5 pounds in a month without changing their diet, but only consuming this infused water.
