Beauty-Boosting Strawberry Lemonade with Basil Seeds
A refreshing summer drink that gives your skin a boost thanks to collagen.
Servings: 1 glass
- 1 scoop Garden of Life Strawberry Lemonade Grass-Fed Collagen Beauty Powder
- 6 ounces filtered water plus more for ice
- 1 teaspoon basil seeds
- Fresh fruit of choice I used raspberries, blackberries, plums and pears
Start by making your fruit-infused ice cubes. Place fresh or frozen fruit in an ice cube tray, cover with water, then freeze for several hours or overnight. I found that, once they melt a little, fresh berries give your drink a deep pink color and a bit of added flavor, but lemons, peaches and plums hold up well to freezing and will make for some pretty ice cubes. You can also use fresh herbs like basil and thyme as well.
Once your cubes are fully frozen, place basil seeds in the bottom of a clean glass.
In a separate glass, mix together your Garden of Life Collagen and water. I used a blender bottle to make sure mine was thoroughly mixed, but you can whisk it by hand or use a container with a lid and give it a good shake.
Pour over basil seeds and stir. Over time, the basil seeds will form a gel and sink to the bottom of the glass.
Finish by adding ice cubes and garnish with fresh fruit or basil leaves.
