When you have a glut of raspberries what are you to do with them before they all go squishy and mouldy?
Easy… make a refreshing raspberry drink!
But there was no way we could eat them all before they went bad. So I got A to make this tasty beverage…
Green Tea is allowed on the AIP protocol, but should be consumed in moderation.
Raspberry Green Tea Lemonade
makes 1 large jug
5 green tea-bags – use whatever is your favourite
1 sprig of peppermint (fresh from the garden!)
1 punnet (1/2 pint) of raspberries
1/2 cup lemon juice
honey to taste.
First up, you need to boil your kettle, and let the water cool just a little. If it is boiling, there is the risk it will crack your jug.
Put the teabags, lemon juice, mint and berries in the jug and pour over the hot water – just add enough hot water to cover the berries and tea bags
Stir well and allow to brew for 10-15 minutes.
Squeeze out the tea bags to remove as much flavour as possible and then top up with cold water. Chill.
Strain once cold to remove any raspberry bits if you like.
Sweeten with honey if desired.
