I'm back with an exciting recipe. This summer I ditched my normal ice coffees and frappucinos. I've discovered a new refresher that turned out to later be my summer buddy.
It is the Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade. When I first gave this amazing beverage a try I was very pleased at how refreshing this drink was. The fact that I could taste equal parts of all the ingredients was mind blowing. No one ingredient overpowered the other.
Starbucks can be a little on the expensive side. Especially, if you become obsession like myself, wanting to purchase more than once a day.
So I'd thought....HEY why not try this at home. I'm sure it wont come out as amazing, but if I get close I'll be pretty darn satisfied.
On with the recipe...done TYSHWAY ;-)
Things you'll need:
Green tea bags
Sugar (or your preferred sweetener)
Peach with heavy syrup
Step 1: Using a tea kettle you are going to make your green tea.
Step 2: Place your tea in a pitcher then in a refrigerator for about an hour.
Step 3: After tea is cool, take your lemon and squeeze the juice of the lemon into the tea. Careful not to get the lemons seeds in there.
Step 4: Using a blender. Take your can of peaches along with the syrup and blend until you have a nectar consistency. (if you do not have peaches in a can, regular peaches will do. Just slice peach into 4s and add water and a little honey then blend)
Step 5: Add the nectar mix to your tea.
Step 5: Add 3-4tsps of sugar or honey for added sweetness
Step 6: Give your tea a good stir.
Step 7 Add ice and enjoy your homemade refresher.
(note: I rarely use measurements. I freestyle according to the servings I am making)
Give it a try!!!! Let me know how yours turn out.
