5-6 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice (we use Meyer lemons as it is a cross between an orange and lemon-benefits are great flavor, not as tart)

1 quart of purified water

1/2 tsp. of pure Stevia powder

1 small bundle of fresh Thai basil

1 bulb (the size of your thumb nail) of fresh ginger-peeled and sliced

2 cups of your favorite fresh berries


Combine the lemon juice, water, and stevia-stirring until combined. Crush the basil and stir with the slices of fresh ginger straight into the pitcher of lemonade. Sprinkle in fresh berries, giving a quick stir. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
