5 Fun Iced Tea Recipes

Summertime is filled with lemonade, cold sweet Kool-aid, and drinks sporting so much sugar (usually in the form of high fructose corn syrup) they can rival a king sized candy bar. Try to cut out the sugar by purchasing the sugar free options and you’re ingesting man-made chemicals in addition to the already plentiful GMO’s, dyes, and preservatives.

Instead, why not make some of your own delicious summer-time drinks that everyone from kids to adults will love? Here are 5 fun iced tea recipes that are favorites at my house.

Lemonade Black Iced Tea

Follow directions for Passion Iced tea Lemonade. Only, substitute black tea for the passion tea. Sweeten with a touch of honey or stevia if needed. Serve over crushed ice.

Licorice Root Iced Tea

Licorice root tea is naturally sweet and is very soothing to a sore throat. However, it is extremely refreshing and light when served cold. Simply steep for 4 minutes in boiling water and pour over ice in a glass cup.
