Frozen Limeade Frosty!

One sip, and your mind freezes over in a pure state of fresh bliss. You could call this a palate-cleansing frosty - but I call it a day-cleansing frosty. "Stress be gone." says the hypnotic green lime juice.

For an arctic chill inspired, zippy, juicy and sweet-tart sip - give this Frozen Limeade Frosty a try. It is infused with bright fresh lime juice with sweet undertones of basil, a hint of lemon and sweetened with smooth maple (or agave) syrup. This frosty is free of mint - but you could certainly add some if you'd like. Vibrant, clean flavors will cool you off and chill you out. And yes, if you want to add a happy hour splash of silver tequila, go for it...

Frozen Limeade Frosty
makes about 24 ounces

2 juicy limes, squeezed (about 1/4 cup lime juice)
1 Tbsp lemon juice (or use all lime)
1 1/2 cups ice
1/3 cup frozen banana
2-3 Tbsp maple or agave syrup
pinch of lime zest
2 Tbsp fresh basil or mint leaves
2-4 Tbsp chilled water* (I used sparkling mineral water!)

*the amount of water you use determines how intense your frosty flavor will be.

Optional: make it a cocktail + splash of tequila

garnish: lime wedges

To Make:

1. Add the fresh citrus juice to the blender. I used my Vitamix.
2. Add in the ice cubes, banana, sweetener, lime zest and basil.
3. Start blending on low - slowly add in the water 1 Tbsp at a time. Keep blending until a desired thickness is reached.
4. Pour into glasses. Garnish. Salt-rimmed glasses are a nice touch too.
