Easy Sugar-Free Basil Lemonade

Gluten-Free, Smoothies & Drinks, Sugar-Free, Vegan



Good morning everyone! Today I’m sharing one of my favourite summer drink recipes! A special take on the usual lemonade. This lemonade has fresh basil leaves in it, which gives the drink a beautiful balance and makes it really refreshing. It’s also free of refined sugar and really easy and quick to make. A lot of lemonade recipes require cooking, syrup, hours of cooling and refrigerating. But honestly, who can be bothered with that, especially during summer? I can’t! I want my drink and I want it now! My lemonade recipe requires no cooking and waiting as you can enjoy it immediately. Yay! I hope you like this recipe! Scroll down for the video. Have a gorgeous day!
