Amazingly Fresh Blackberry Limeade


Here’s a great foundation to any kind of Labor Day concoction you might like to make! If made just as is, then the kiddos will have a great drink to enjoy, made with healthy fresh ingredients!!


Serves 2

Prep time: 12 min

Cook time: 8 min


INGREDIENTS:


1 cup blackberries, fresh

3 tablespoon coconut sugar

Juice of two large limes

5 basil leaves

2 to 2 1/2 cups cold water

basil leaves and fresh blackberries, for garnish


Directions:


In a pot over high heat, add the blackberries, sugar, limes, basil leaves and ½ cup water.


Smash the blackberries with the back of a wooden spoon and stir to combine.


Bring to a boil then reduce to medium heat to cook for about 5 minutes.


Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then pour into a blender to blend everything together again. Strain over a pitcher to remove seeds and solids. Add in the extra 1 ½ or 2 cups of cold water and stir together (add 1 ½ cups first then taste to see if you'll need the extra ½ cup).


Serve immediately with fresh blackberries and basil leaves in each glass.
