A cookbook I've loved lately, Superfood Smoothies, and this recipe, with sweet strawberries and basil, has been one of my new favorites.  Basil a lightly floral accent to the strawberries, but there's more to the story ..

tomatoes

A combination I'd never thought of in quite this way.  Since strawberries and tomatoes share many of the same flavor notes, incorporating them, along with basil, is really a seamless (and delicious!) addition

Enjoy!
