|See the beautiful basil?!|
2 lemons- peeled and halved, seeds removed
2 limes- peeled
1/4 cup sweetener (we prefer honey)
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (we often use more)
4-6 cups ice cubes
1/2- 1 cup water (optional)
Add ingredients to blender in order listed. Blend on high speed until ice is crushed and desired consistency is reached.
This is a fun recipe we've adapted from the Vitamix cookbook. I like to serve this for my Garden and Greens Events... or most anytime we have friends over. I've doubled the original recipe except for the sweetener. (You could use Stevia, too.) We're snipping fresh basil from our TowerGarden and the result is a wonderful, refreshing green slushy!
