At the left is a glass of Thai sweet basil seed drink. It's delicious--the seeds become soft with a consistency similar to eating watermelon. Also, according to Thai tradition, this drink also helps a person lose weight. Brand: Basil Weight: 256 g Flavor: Orange, Apple, Grape Product Origin: Pakistan Premium Quality Product. 100% Authentic & Fresh Product. Recipe It is made by stirring 1/3 cup sugar into 2 cups water (use less sugar as per your taste preference), add 1 tablespoon honey and stir. Then add 4 teaspoons of sweet basil seed. Within 2-3 minutes the basil seeds expand and look very odd, a bit like tadpoles! We imagine this could be an interesting party drink.
