This easy refresher hits the spot.
From the moment you cut into the lime and pinch off the leaves of mint
their refreshing and invigorating scent instantly revitalizes our mind.
On top of whisking us away on a little mental vacation the ingredients
in this Minty Lime Iced Green “Flat Belly” Tea have some great health
benefits, making us feel lighter and bloat-free to boot!
- 1 bag green tea
- 8 ounces of water
- ½ small lime, juiced
- 2-3 mint leaves
- Ice, to chill
- Prepare green tea according to package directions. (We heated
water, just until it bubbled, not a rolling boil., Then we poured it
over the green tea bag, let steep for 5 minutes and then removed the tea
bag. For stronger tea you can steep longer).
- While tea is steeping, juice ½ of a small lime in a small dish.
- Add the mint leaves into the lime juice and muddle (press the leaves
into the dish to release their healthful oils) slightly to release
- Once tea has cooled slightly, pour tea over ice, add in lime/mint
juice. You can include the leaves or leave them out, either way you will
get their minty effect.
