Basil Lemonade

 This is a recipe from the Vita-Mix facebook page. I have made it a couple of times already this week, and it is so good!! My kids even loved it. We will have plenty of basil for sale at the Farmers Market this morning! If you don't have a Vita-Mix, you can just use a regular blender.

Ingredients
3 cups (720 ml) water
1 1/2 lemons, peeled, halved, seeded
1/4 cup (50 g) sugar or other sweetener
1/2 cup (20 g) fresh basil leaves
1 cup (240 ml) ice cubes

Directions
1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Variable 1.
3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
4. Blend for 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached.
