grandma's cookbook - Refreshing, Blueberry, Green Tea!

It is hot where I live today . . . very, very hot. And humid. It is the perfect day for iced tea! Try this recipe with your grandchildren . . . it is simple, quick and so delicious! A big added "plus" is the health benefit . . . blueberries and green tea are so good for you! My husband never liked tea, until I made blueberry tea for him! Now he drinks my tea instead of pop! My two year old grandson loves this tea, too . . . and the only sweetening comes naturally from blueberries . . . not sugar!

Recipe -
West Bend 68303 2-3/4-Quart Iced-Tea MakerMr. Coffee TM75 3 Quart Iced Tea Maker
  • 1/2 cup blueberries - I use frozen blueberries as they are easy to come by all year long!
  • seven green tea bags 
Using  your iced tea maker - I like Mr. Coffee's Iced Tea Machine and West Bend's Back to Basics Iced Tea Machine put your blueberries 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!
