Raspberry Green Tea Lemonade

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!

We bought a big box of wonderful raspberries from Souto Farms at the Calgary Farmers Market.  They were on special offer, and we just could not resist!

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

rasplemon3

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.
