#1 The Grapefruit Basil Mojito
Non-alcoholic, safe for kids and made with club soda.
Serves 2 (6oz. glasses)
2 Limes, sliced
1/4 Grapefruit, peeled and cut into chunks
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
6 Basil leaves – 3 per each glass
In a Ziploc bag add all of the above ingredients. Squeeze the limes in the bag and keep the peels on. Place the mixture in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours so the flavors can absorb into each other. Fill two glasses with ice, divide the contents in half and pour club soda over the top. Serve with paper straws and garnish with extra basil leaves or a lime wedge.
#2 The Green Smoothie
This easy smoothie is a delicious breakfast detox that will keep you energized all morning!
8oz Spinach leaves
1/4 cup Kale (optional extra greens)
1 cup almond milk
In a blender combine all the ingredients. Blend until smooth and decorate with any extra greens. Enjoy the power of green!
#3 Watermelon Date Smoothie
Unique and refreshing, our date smoothie is definitely one to remember.
3-4 Large pieces of watermelon
4 Dates, chopped
5-6 Mint leaves
1 Spoonful of honey
In a blender, combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth. Toss a few sliced berries on top for added flavor and color. Serve in a tall glass or share with a friend - because it's that good!
