Mint lemonade

I love squeezing fresh lemon or lime into my water. Sometimes, I'll drink a gallon a day! You know these citrus fruit have more vit-c than oranges, so drink up!

During the summer we get fresh mint at the farmer's markets. That's when I love fresh mint lemonade (or limeade!)

Citrus (lemon or lime)
Agave nectar or raw sugar
Handful of fresh mint leaves (discard stems)

You can make it one of two ways:

1) Hand-crush your mint leaves and throw them into your lemonade, or


2) use a blender to crush your lemon/lime pulp and mint leaves. They're easier to drink and will probably make a stronger mint-ade!
