Fresh Basil LemonadeGF, DF, P, V


This is the absolute BEST summer drink. I drink this almost daily when the temperature rises and I need a healthy and delicious cool-down. I find that you stick to these healthy habits if you always have certain staples on hand. I love my organic basil plant (it loves my bright kitchen!) and try to always have fresh organic lemons in the fridge.  That way, I can make it on a whim!

2 small lemons, peeled and seeded

~10-15 basil leaves, picked off plant or bought

¼ cup maple syrup

2.5 cups filtered water

½ cup ice

Add all ingredients to your high-speed blender / Vitamix / Ninja, pour and enjoy….outside!
