Raspberry Mint Lime Cooler – Non-Alcoholic

I have a confession to make – I’m taking a couple of weeks off the wine!  After our wonderful trip to France and Spain and the many wine tastings we did in Rioja and Bordeaux I felt like I needed a bit of a break.  I’m actually following the 3-week gut-reset diet from the book The Autoimmune Fix by Dr Tom O’Bryan so I’m off the dairy and the honey too.  No need to panic though.  I’m off on holiday to Portugal in a couple of weeks where I’ll definitely be indulging in my share of the Vinho Verde!  I created this Raspberry Mint Lime Cooler as an alternative to sparkling water which I was getting so bored of and I can’t get enough of it now.  It’s so refreshing and so delicious that I really didn’t miss the wine at our recent family BBQ!  That’s definitely a first for me!Raspberry Mint Lime Cooler by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Dairyfree, Regined Sugarfree, Paleo, SCD, Raw, Low Carb, Whole30, Vegan, Vegetarian

It’s so easy to make and takes less than 5 minutes to come together.  Start by muddling the raspberries with a tbsp of water.  When they are crushed, pass them through a sieve to extract the juice.  Make sure to press down firmly on the seeds to get all the juice out.

Juice the half lime and add this to the glass with the raspberry juice.  Finely slice the mint and add to the glass along with a few ice cubes and the whole raspberries.
