But, seriously, you all. This stuff actually will blow your mind.
What could be simpler than combining a few magical ingredients in a blender and pushing start?
Lemon juice is super good for you. I'm sure basil is good for you (I mean, it's all green and leafy). And it's got a low sugar content. Perfect summery hydration!
I know basil lemonade sounds weird. But you should really just try it. You might be surprised.
- 1/3 cup lemon juice (about 3-4 lemons)
- 1/3 cup agave*
- 8-10 basil leaves
- 1 1/2 cups water (separated)
Place lemon juice, agave, basil leaves, and 1/2 cup water in the blender. Let it blend for about one minute, until there are no more chunks of basil. Add in the last 1 cup of water and mix to combine. Serve with ice!
*You can use maple syrup, if you want--it won't taste mapley with all the basil and lemon going on. Or you can use 1/4 cup sugar.
