I am on a creative kick to create refreshing drinks this summer. Tasting something sweet, sour, and very cold takes my mind off of the heat. When I hosted a garden party several weeks ago I discovered how much I love the taste of blueberry and basil together. So, I developed an easy way to enjoy flavored refreshing drinks at ALL times. These are blueberry basil lemon ice cubes. I make several trays at a time, grab a few cubes and toss them in my drink. Perfection!
2 cups water
juice of one lemon
1 cup organic blueberries (fresh or frozen)
3-4 leaves fresh basil sliced
10 drops stevia (optional) ~ I prefer mine without any sweetener
Mix water, lemon, and stevia if desired. Fill trays with this mixture. Add 2 blueberries and a few sprigs of basil to each cube and freeze. Pop out the cubes and place in a tray for easy access. Enjoy!
