Mint Limeade

I have mint growing in my backyard and I really wanted to do something with them.  I noticed in a restaurant one day that they sell mint limeade so I decided to make my own recipe for Mint Limeade. 

Mint Limeade

3 limes quartered
1/3 sucanat, agave, or honey
3 TBS almond milk
Few mint leaves
5 C of water

Place first four ingredients in blender.  Add 4 cups of cold water and blend on high speed until limes are slightly chopped.  Strain into pitcher and then with the strainer still resting above the pitcher, slowly pour about 1 more cup water through the strainer over the lime pieces to extract all the residual sugar and juice.

Very yummy!!
