It's starting to feel like summer here in the Seattle area! I love lemonade but hate how the store bought brands are loaded with sugar. While participating in the Whole Life Challenge, I need a healthy drink to quench my thirst on hot days.
Here's my alternative recipe:
- 2 Lemons
- 1 Stevia Packet
- 2 -3 Basil Leaves
Peel and juice 2 lemons using a hand citrus juicer or something like that. I personally use a Waring Pro for convenience. Combine the lemon juice, stevia, basil leaves and a few cube of ice to a 16 ounce glass. Use a muddler to blend the ingredients together and bring out the basil flavor. Add a few more ice cubes and fill the rest of the glass with water. Stir and enjoy!
