Strawberry Iced Tea

Summer is upon us and as the days grow hotter and more humid (if you live in the south/southeast that is!) you will be looking for easy ways to cool off. I thought I would share this recipe for Strawberry Iced Tea that I came across.Strawberry Iced Tea Recipe

I made it as my contribution for the “Team Recommends” section of the Daughters of Promise magazine that I am a staff member of. (Check out the website here for more info.) Use your favorite method for making regular iced tea. If you don’t have a method for making iced tea, use the recipe below that my mom always makes.Strawberry Iced Tea Recipe

Strawberry Iced Tea (sweet)-makes 1 gallon

Fill a small sauce pan with cold water. Cover and bring to a boil. When boiling, remove from heat and put in 3 family size tea bags or 8 of the smaller regular size bags, cover and let steep for 10 minutes. Remove excess liquid from bags and add ¾-1 cup sugar to hot tea. Stir till melted. Pour over ice in 1 gallon pitcher. Add water to fill.

For strawberry iced tea:

Blend 2 cups of fresh or frozen strawberries in blender or food processor until smooth. Pour into pitcher with the already made tea. Add water to fill. Squeeze in 1-2 limes.Strawberry Iced Tea Recipe

  1. This looks amazing! I am pretty sure it’ll be an afternoon-pick-me-up after my toddler goes down for his nap.

    I recently discovered your blog and really enjoy it.

    Have a lovely day,
    Sarah
