Basil Lemonade

Basil Lemonade

Magic hours: Welcome brighter days with this Basil Lemonade in your kitchen!

I concocted this green juice and have been drinking first thing in the morning on an empty stomach about 30 minutes before breakfast. Give it a try. It works magic. Let me know, and if you can share a photo, I’d love to see it. Because together is much better.


Makes 1

1 lemon

1 lime

½ cup fresh picked basil leaves

1 tablespoon honey

Blend everything together until bright green and completely smooth. Strain over a fine sieve, pour over ice and serve.
