Tired of drinking only water? Try this really tasty drink that is only 1 point for an 8 ounce glass…
This blueberry-lemon iced tea is a favorite of mine, especially for the spring and summer months…
- 8 Blueberry Tea Bags (I like to use Bigelow’s Wild Blueberry and Acai Herb Tea, PHOTO OF BOX LATER IN POST)
- 12 cups of water
- 4 lemons
- 3 tsp of agave nectar light
Bring the water to boil in a large pot. Turn burner off and steep the tea bags (with the paper tags torn off) in the pot for 10 minutes. Add juice from 2 of the lemons to the pot along with the agave nectar. Slice the other 2 lemons and add the slices to the pot. Transfer everything to a large glass container or pitcher and add 2 ice cube trays (24 ice cubes) to the container. Chill and enjoy! (I keep the tea bags in there for a few hours and take them out either that evening or the next morning, depending when I prepare the tea)
**This tea provides antioxidants from the blueberries and Acai. The lemons are an excellent digestive agent. Enjoy!!
This recipe makes about 6, eight ounce glasses of iced tea! Weight watchers Points Plus 2012: 1 point for 1 eight ounce glass
This is the tea I like to use.
How perfect is this lemon? Take a sniff of it when you first cut it open and remind yourself how blessed you are to exist on a planet that can produce such beautiful things!
Happy almost-spring Sunday!
