Good news then, because a few months ago a friend of mine had me “hold on” as she was pouring her kids a berry drink. Knowing she’s a health nut I asked “Okay, spill….how do you make this berry drink Michelle?”
Here’s her recipe as close as I can remember, then of course my two cents on top:)
6 Herbal Berry Tea Bags (your choice) in 6 cups of pure water, bring to a quick boil then simmer on low for about 10-15 minutes (during the summer you can make this just like you make sun tea).
Once simmered, add concentrated stevia (1/4 heaping tsp will be perfect).
At this time you may choose to add a touch of food coloring (or in my case concentrated juice, see below).
Fill a 2 quart pitcher with ice, pour hot tea over it – and that’s it – 2 quarts of very berry, very sweet, very healthy kid friendly beverage!
NOTE: I sometimes stir in 2 oz of unsweetened blueberry, black cherry, or other concentrated juice to the tea before pouring over the ice – richer flavor and richer color!
