Our basil plant has been out of control! I made a killer sous vide strawberry basil syrup that I've been using in cocktails but it's also great in my nutritious hemp smoothies! I'm tag-teaming this one by using both hemp oil and the seeds. Mix in some adorable little pea shoots and you've got a sweet start to the day.
