Green Tea Pomegranate Lemonade


I found this recipe at the back of one of my Clean Eating cookbooks and instantly fell in love with it! This is the type of recipe that is easily adapted to suit personal tastes. In fact, I’ve already made some changes to make it perfect for me. While it isn’t free of calories, it is much lower than a non-diet commercial product. The only problem is that it does not last nearly long enough!

Put 7 green tea bags in a 2L pitcher. Add 7 cups of boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes. (Don’t remove the tea bags yet!)

Stir in the following:

1/4 cup raw honey (you can use up to 1 cup or you can use Sucanat instead of honey, although I find the finished product darker, which didn’t really affect the taste but I prefer the honey)

1/4 cup pomegranate juice

the juice of 4 lemons which works out to roughly 3/4 cup (you can use up to 1 cup or use less)

Chill for at least 30 minutes. Remove tea bags. Serve over ice.
