Yummmmm…..Mangos were looking delicious so I concocted this creamy awesome post-workout blend with fresh basil.
I know, might sound like a funny combo but it was delicious, and also really good for the bod!
Basil contains some really beneficial volatile oils that have anti inflammatory benefits – a quality that is great to have after you’ve conquered a tough workout sesh.
It has numerous other health benefits that you should totally look up – and it tastes awesome!
I boosted it with some fresh squeezed lemon for the anti-oxidant bonus, and garnished with a little basil and mango wedge.
Try it out!
