Amanda here~With the holidays upon us and parties around every corner, I’m pleased to share this fabulous recipe for a mocktail from the brilliant mind of Bon Crowder!
I invented this drink while pregnant. But it’s great for non-pregnant moms, too. Especially during parties when you’re stuck being the driver. Or you’re resisting the dehydrating effects of alcohol.
2 packages Truvia
1/4 cup lemon juice
3-5 spearmint leaves
3 cups crushed ice
3 cups water
In a blender, mix lemon juice, spearmint, 1 cup crushed ice and sweetener until the leaves are pretty chopped up. Add in water and the rest of the ice and blend just until stirred together.
Drink from a fancy glass garnished with a sprig of spearmint.
