Today I thought I would share one of my favorite summer drink recipes. It’s a homemade ice tea and juice blend. It’s perfect for those hot summer days after a good long walk outside, or to take in a drink cooler when going camping, fishing, etc. And, of course, it’s very healthy for you!
Homemade Ice Tea Blend
Add the following into your favorite glass pitcher or cooler. You may need to double this recipe if using a larger cooler.
1.) 1 pitcher sized bag (or 4 small mug sized bags) of your favorite tea (I like regular Lipton for this recipe but mixing other flavors is also good). Fill about 2/3 of the way to the top with room temp filtered water.
2.) 3 fresh squeezed (or better yet, juiced) lemons
3.) 1 fresh squeezed/juiced lime
4.) 1 fresh squeezed/juiced grapefruit
5.) 1 fresh squeezed/juiced orange
6.) 2 fresh squeezed/juiced peaches
7.) 3 tbsp local unfiltered honey
8.) 1 tbsp coconut oil (2 if you really like coconut)
Gently stir the mix and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes so that the tea can saturate the water. Then refrigerate or add ice to the glass if needed for immediate serving.
Sip with a loved one and enjoy! 🙂
