Strawberry, Lemon & Basil Soda Recipe

Basil has an amazing smell that makes me think of summer.  It is an easy plant to grow if you have the right sun/shade mix, but we received great basil in this week’s CSA share.  I use basil as a topping on pasta, lettuce salads, fruit and even “herb toast” which is a favorite snack my four-year-old nephew.  He learned about spices as a baby and has a great palate for snacks! I usually roll the basil and slice thinly to get little pieces in every bite.  Here is a refreshing way to use basil.

  1. Goodness! What a refreshing recipe. I’m thinking that it needs to be frozen in a popsicle mold.
