It has been very hot for a while now in Australia and this frozen mint lemonade is the best hot weather drink I know! I tried this for the first time in Rishikesh, India, but it’s originally a middle eastern drink. This is the most refreshing beverage, pretty much ever. It is minty slushie kind of drink, so simple to make, but so tasty! The original drink is full of sugar of course, but I used stevia instead. You can use what ever natural sweetener you like.
1 cup ice cubes
1 cup water
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
stevia or other sweetener to taste
1 tsp raw greens powder (optional) *
Combine all the ingredients in a blender or a food processor. Run until well combined. You are after that slushie consistency here. I added 1 teaspoon of Raw Greens powder, just to get in my superfoods of the day. This is optional. Pour frozen mint lemonade into a tall glass and enjoy!
