This is a refreshing, summery drink. I had it recently at a friend's house, and it was delicious. No calories, other than those in the lime juice (20 per lime).
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1 cup water
Blend the water and mint leaves in a blender. Juice the limes, and add to the mint water; stir. Pour over ice cubes, equally among four glasses. Add
to taste. You can use any sweetener you'd like, but stevia is a good, no-calorie alternative.
The original recipe calls for peeling the limes and blending them with the mint and water. (You then have to strain the mixture.) I tried it this way and found it a little bitter, perhaps because of the added pith that I wasn't able to remove? It's also not easy to peel a lime!
Have a beautiful weekend.
