Summers have arrived and how!? The heat kills me and all I want to do is sip on something chilled. But my hubby & I, we are both teetotallers, so I try to make some healthy, non-alcoholic drinks when at home..😍
Last summer too, I had shared some easy to do mocktail recipes over at Summer Siesta. You may even find some of the most delicious ice creams there! 👌
As I have said above, that we are a teetotaller couple….well that’s not entirely true because…I don’t even drink tea or coffee!! Yes, that’s right, I DON’T! Never have needed the kick from caffeine to wake me up every morning or to get rid of a bad headache. When most people learn this fact about me, they are surprised and try to convince me otherwise and stuff…LOL!! Makes no difference to me 😝
But I always make a large mug of tea and that’s just for my hubby…who loves his ‘chai’, proper with ginger and lots of milk! To be honest, he’s the one who taught me how to make a ‘decent cup of tea’. I’d never be told to make any at Mom’s as I never drank any so nobody trusted me to make it well! Hahahah…and I never complained😹😹
So coming on to my Fruity Green Tea Cooler, it’s delicious with a hint of grassy flavour that it gets from the green tea…but it’s dominated by the fruitiness it gets from one of my favourite fruits! 😋 Besides, it’s too easy to make and will compliment everything summery…🍹🍹🍹
Let’s see how….
Equipment: a blender, a saucepan, measuring cups/ spoons.
2 cup chilled de seeded & chopped watermelon
1 nos. green tea bag (I used Lemon & Honey)
1 + 1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp lemon juice
honey to taste
ice cubes as needed to serve
Brew the green tea with warm water. Let cool down completely. Then chill this green tea for about 30 mins.
Once this is chilled, add the green to the blender along with lemon juice, chopped watermelon & honey. Blend all these for a minute until everything is blended well. That’s it, add ice cubes if you like & enjoy!
Now, doesn’t that look absolutely charming! I guess having something as healthy as this is much better than grabbing a can or two of cola!!
