Today I wanted to share with you my favorite go to afternoon drink.
I usually drink water throughout the day with a squeeze of lemon, but I get bored with that! This is such an easy, refreshing drink to whip up anytime of day. So, why is it called fluffy? Well, it’s just that…fluffy! When you blend tea with ice, it forms this billowy type texture, similar to a snow cone!
One of my main health tips last week (you can read that post here) was green tea. You can definitely use green tea for this recipe, or your favorite. I have done this with black tea and it was just as good 🙂
Simple Fluffy Lemon Tea
♥ 8 oz of water, boiling
♥ 2 tea bags of choice ( I use green tea, but use your favorite one that goes with lemon!)
♥ 1 lemon
♥ 1- 2 packets of sweetener (I use truvia)
♥ 1-2 cups of ice
Steep tea bags in water for 3-4 minutes. Let it cool just a few minutes, then add it to a blender. Add sweetener, squeeze at least half of the lemon (use more if you love lemon or if your lemon isn’t very juicy), and ice. Blend until desired texture!
So simple, but it is really refreshing and a great substitute for just plain water! I love adding lemon to everything, so I usually add the entire lemon for this recipe…but that is a little strong, so you can certainly use less 🙂
What is your favorite type of tea? Have a wonderful week!
