Mint Lemonade Recipe
Mint is so simple and easy to grow! You can start from seeds. Or you can just buy small containers at big box building supply stores.
Growing them in containers means that just about everyone can grow mint. And, even if you don’t have a lot of space, don’t worry, you can grow a great herb garden!
And, like basil and cilantro, mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow.
The cool thing about mint is that its roots are ‘runners’ which means, like ivy and other ground covers, it can take over a flower bed or garden in not time if you’re not careful! However, not to worry because you can use mint in so many ways. And, you can preserve and dry mint when it’s not growing season!
Not only can you make this lemon slush with mint, but there are soooooooooooooo many other recipes I’ve created for you to use that gorgeous mint!
Gosh, this mint lemonade slushie would have been perfect when I was in the Sahara Desert.
As you might know, mint tea is very traditional and popular in the Middle East. And, I had the honor of being invited into a Berber family’s home in the middle of the desert to share in tea and nibbles.
You don’t want to miss this post. Mint tea with Hassan, a young child who lives with his single mom in the desert, was one of the highlights of my life.
- 4 lemons, juice and zest of 2 of the lemons
- 1 cups fresh mint leaves, packed, plus more for garnish
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 4 cups ice cubes
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups sparkling water
Put the lemon juice, zest, mint leaves, sugar, ice cubes and one 1 1/2 cups of sparkling water in the blender.
Pulse and blend all ingredients into a thick slushie texture. Add the remaining sparkling water and more if you prefer a more liquid slushie.
Serve immediately with a sprig of fresh mint!
