Sweet Basil Smoothie

Things I've learned studying in my library's Silent Reading Room:

1) I chew loudly.

2) I fidget.

3) I can never find my pen in my purse.

4) My phone's silent buzzer is in fact not silent.

5) People get irritated when you chew loudly, fidget, can't find your pen, and have a noisy phone.

6) I probably should not study in the Silent Reading Room.

7) Or blog about basil smoothies when the tapping of my keyboard garners glares.

Sweet Basil Smoothie

1 cup greek yogurt
1 cup basil
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp sugar

Combine all ingredients in a blender until well blended. Garnish with basil leaf.

Btw- you should all follow me on Twitter. I occasionally say amusing things and fangirl over assorted television shows. Good times.


  1. yep sounds and looks amazing as always Liz! I will have to make this sometime this weekend.

  2. What an original idea!! I LOVE fresh basil - this sounds amazing :).

  3. I've never ever heard of a basil smoothie - looks interesting though!!

  4. Oh, I really like the sound of this smoothie. Sweet but sophisticate... like me :D.
    *kisses* HH

  5. Hahaha! I totally do all those things too so no worries you aren't alone!

  6. Hilarious! I love- My phones vibrate feature is not in fact silent. So darn true.

    I am going to need a basil smoothie by the weekend's end. Get one to me as fast as you can :)

  7. oh I bet this tastes so refreshing!

  8. You crack me up...I chew too loudly as well. I realize this when I'm chewing during afternoon tea and I'm supposed to be ladylike. Which is impossible for me...
