Prep Time:

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup of sweetener like honey, agave, coconut sugar or 1/8-1/4 teaspoon white powder stevia – see note
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves + a couple extra leaves for garnish
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice [3-4 medium lemons]
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice [about 4 medium limes]
  • 1/4 cup not from concentrate apple juice
  • 2 cup cold water
  • 2 cup ice

Instructions

  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.

Notes

I used stevia for the first batch and honey for the second. I liked the taste of the honey version more, but 2/3 a cup is a bit much.
