Basil Lemonade

My mom has been obsessed with making basil lemonade since the summer started, and let me tell you,  it is ah-mazing. She found the recipe from the vitamix recipe book.


  • 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

Little Mommy

When we went to Kelowna we also brought my niece Davenee who is 6 years old. She was so helpful the whole trip. Keeping him busy on the long drive, changing his diaper, feeding him food and showing him how to play with his toys. This little girl is going to make one amazing Mommy when she is older. She even told me “I want to have 100 baby girls!”
