This Strawberry Balsamic Salad Smoothie can also be easily turned into a protein shake by including the optional natural plant based protein such as nuts or seeds. You can turn this recipe into a green smoothie by including the optional leafy greens in this recipe.
After the great feedback on my last series of recipes, the dessert thickie smoothies, (which I am still continuing for a few more weeks) I am starting a new green thickie series called Green Smoothie of the week. I will be scouring the web for green smoothie recipes that catch my eye, try them out, turn them into a green thickie (add oats and nuts/seeds) to make them into a complete meal and make any other tweaks I fancy, then present them to you to give you a bigger range of unique green thickie recipes to try.
This smoothie caught my eye immediately. There is something about the taste of strawberries with balsamic vinegar that really works. I was intrigued as to how this would work in a smoothie. I’m always up for trying out weird and wonderful combinations of ingredients and this one definitely fits the bill. It’s strangely addictive. I thought it might be a bit too strange for my husband but surprisingly he really loved it too.
This Strawberry Balsamic Salad Smoothie recipe was inspired by Floptimism. At first I was wondering if the addition of basil and balsamic vinegar might be a bit too much, but once I started adding the basil, I just couldn’t stop. It just tasted fresher and fresher with each basil leaf I added, so I included loads more basil than in the original recipe. When I had counted 48 basil leaves, I decided just to call it one cup of tightly packed basil leaves. Feel free to add less basil, but this is a green thickie after all, so we’ve got to get our greens somewhere, and it might as well be with the basil.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
