This one is for all of my sugary beverage lovers who long for a sweet thirst quencher that’s going to hit all the right spots without all of the artificial gunk and unnecessary sugar calories. I promise you’ll come back for more, and then some. This is worth your 5 minutes, trust me.
First you’re going to brew some green tea, but it has to be jasmine green tea because the jasmine essence gives this drink an exotic, unexpected flavor that really packs a punch. Then, after it has cooled (or you can instantly cool it with ice cubes), you'll add it to some freshly squeezed citrus juice, and yummy fruits, and voila the antioxidant thirst quencher is born!
8 Oz of brewed and cooled jasmine green tea
1/4 cup fresh squeezed citrus juice*
1/2 cup water
2 lemon wedges
3 sliced strawberries
Organic Stevia to taste
(makes 1 16 oz drink)
*I make my own fresh- squeezed citrus juice with 1 lemon to every 3 oranges. Double, triple and multiply as necessary.
Start by brewing your jasmine green tea and set aside. Tip: you can also make a whole batch of tea ahead of time and store in the fridge for when you need it.
Next, in a large glass, add your citrus juice and fruits. Pour in the tea, and add ice cubes if not working with already- cooled tea. Top off with water to fill the glass, and sweeten with stevia to taste.
