Hello again beautiful people!With Spring upon us and Summer just around the corner, I thought it would be super cool to leave you guys a piece to try at home.Apart from these two seasons being the prettiest to dress for,they also tend to demand that we stay a little more hydrated than usual.
Coldrink and my skin just do not see eye to eye, to the point where I think I’m going to have to stay away from it permanently and rather stick to good old fashion water and pure fruit juices. Recently I have been having Rooibos tea with a splash of fresh lemon juice and a little honey in the morning as my hot beverage.In the short while that I have been having it, I have already seen and felt such a difference in my skin and my energy levels.I liked it so much that I thought it would be just as nice if it were chilled.Thus, my experimentation began. I have found a perfect,healthy drink for the Summer and something to sip on whenever I want this season.
I love that I don’t have to keep running to the shops to buy iced tea, I can make something tasty with the basics here at home and even get way more fancier.
3 to 4 Rooibos teabags
Slices of fresh lemon ( how many slices is up to you)
Pure honey or sugar (I like honey,it just does so much good on the skin)
Cinnamon sticks.I love the taste of cinnamon so wherever I can stick it in, I will lol. This is optional though.
Mint Leaves,strawberries and pineapple slices are an amazing extra that you can add-in, I just kept it simple in this post.Not only is the taste more fruity but it looks really beautiful.
Basically just make the tea, add everything in and pop it in the freezer for it to chill.You can put the fruit in before or after.There aren’t any rules when it comes to something like this,you can go GAGA and let your creative JUICES flow 😉 .. see what I did there??! haha
Hint: 5cups of Rooibos a day helps with belly fat and is a great detox!
I hope you guys enjoy and keep refreshed. You can drop me a comment if you are keen on more of my recipes that I love and try at home. 🙂
Much love until the next pickled piece.
