Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 cups
A healthy slush drink made with crushed ice, fresh basil, lemon and lime.
  • ⅔ cup of sweetener like honey, agave, coconut sugar or ⅛-1/4 teaspoon white powder stevia *see note
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves + a couple extra leaves for garnish
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice [3-4 medium lemons]
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice [about 4 medium limes]
  • ¼ cup not from concentrate apple juice
  • 2 cup cold water
  • 2 cup ice
  1. Place all ingredients in blender and pulse until ice is broken up. Pour into glasses immediately and garnish with lime or lemon wedges and extra basil leaves.
I used stevia for the first batch and honey for the second. I liked the taste of the honey version more, but ⅔ a cup is a bit much.
