It’s the middle of summer and all I want is something cold to drink. Unfortunately, my daughter has a nut allergy so I can’t make her any iced tea or lemonade. So, one day when she was away at camp, I created Basil Limeade: a refreshing and healthy alternative for mommy! This limeade recipe isn’t only great for moms – it’s also good for kids because it tastes like candy! The basil adds an extra layer of flavor that will have your taste buds dancing with delight. It is so easy to whip up that you’ll wonder why you never thought about making this before now. And don’t worry if you’re not into the whole basil thing; just add more mint leaves instead. Either way,
