Blueberry, Raspberry, Green Iced Tea

Around my house iced tea is something I try to keep in the refrigerator - especially in the summer! I love to make my own tea - blueberry, raspberry, green tea, so today I thought I'd share my recipe with you. I especially like this recipe because since I use fruit in it, there is no need for sugar or honey to cover up all the wonderful flavors . . . which makes it a refreshing and healthy drink! 

Try this recipe with your grandchildren . . . it is simple, quick and so delicious! A big added "plus" is the health benefit . . . blueberries, raspberries and green tea are so good for you! My husband never liked tea, until I made fruit tea for him! Now he drinks my tea instead of pop! My grandsons love this tea, too . . . and the only sweetening comes naturally from fruit . . . not sugar!

Recipe -
  • 1/4 cup blueberries - I use frozen blueberries as they are easy to come by all year long!
  • 1/4 cup raspberries - again, frozen works really well, but if you have fresh, feel free!
  • Five Tablespoons loose leaf green tea (or five tea bags).
Using your iced tea maker - I like Mr. Coffee's Iced Tea Machineand West Bend's Back to Basics Iced Tea Machine - put your fruit and tea in the basket, add water to the reservoir and ice in the tea pot . . . allow it to brew and enjoy!

As you enjoy the tea with your grandchildren ask them what they are enjoying about their summer. Lead them in thanking God for creating them so they are able to enjoy so many things!
