This year I have lots of basil in my garden. I have been making many different kinds of recipe. One of my favorite is my strawberry basil lemonade. Its very refreshing and I drink it almost everyday. Living in the south it gets hot even in the fall so its a perfect drink all year round.

Keep in mind before you make this with frozen strawberries, it will be more like a smoothie but just as delicious.


1 cup of fresh strawberries. (You can use frozen ones)

1/2 cup of lemon juice

1 cup of Crystal Light

3 leaves of basil

Step1: Clean the strawberries.

Make sure you take off the stems and cut them in half. Rinse well.

Step 2: Blend ingredients

Add 1 cup of strawberries, 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice, 1 cup of crystal light for sweetness and three leaves of basil into a blender. Blend for 1 minute.This recipe is for one serving. Triple the recipe to make a pitcher.

Serve in a large glass and garnish with one strawberry and a few basil on the side of the glass. I make this every morning with my breakfast. it gives me lots of energy. I keep a pitcher in the refrigerator. You will need to stir the pitcher before you pour yourself a glass. The strawberries tend do float to the top of the lemonade.
