Strawberry & Basil Lemonade
Nothings says summer more than a nice cold glass of lemonade!
Our lemon tree was bending over from all the lemons so we harvest a lot to lessen to help the poor tree and at the same time we found uber sweet strawberries at the farmers market so it’s the perfect time to make some lemonade. I used agave nectar for sweetener. Agave nectar in much better alternative for sugar since it does not mess with your blood sugar, it contains some minerals and vitamins if raw and is a good glycemic index food. Glycemic index or GI describes the difference by ranking carbohydrates according to their effect on our blood glucose levels. I don’t even have white sugar at home anymore I just use agave for cooking baking and etc. Agave dissolves very easily so this lemonade does not have to cook and therefore keeping more of of the vitamins and enzymes.
