Staying refreshed and cool in this hot weather can be a challenge so i’m sharing my very favorite recipe for a healthier version of sweet tea. So please forget that American sweet tea, which is filled with refined sugar and is not good for you. And try this recipe instead, it tastes similar but is much more healthier because we are using organic raspberry tea bags which are SUPER healthy for you.
Each tea bag is high in magnesium, potassium, iron and b-vitamins which make it helpful for nausea, leg cramps, and improving sleep during pregnancy.
The specific combination of nutrients in Raspberry leaf/tea makes it extremely beneficial for the female reproductive system as well and is high in Vitamin C. Even more reason to sip on the healthier version of sweet tea, right?
By omitting the refined sugar that regular sweet tea calls for and replacing it with raw honey or agave nectar you will be boosting your immune system even more. This way you can sip away all day long, and not worry about a thing.
I like to brew my tea’s at night, this way it cools down naturally on the shelf and come morning I just add my ice cubes and it’s ready to be enjoyed all day. Just make sure you using real honey, you will know it’s real because it will be somewhat stiff and not runny.
Simply melt it directly into your hot brew and it will melt naturally. If you end up giving this a go, do let me know in the comments below. I would love to see more people switching over and enjoying a healthier version of the very much loved sweet tea.
So sit back and relax enjoying a healthy version of Sweet tea.
I can drink this all Summer long, so refreshing.
Note: You can add more agave nectar or honey to make it sweeter if you’d like.

To make the Raspberry Ice tea:
Make 1 gallon of unsweetened Tea to do this start by boiling your water and then adding it to an unbreakable pitcher. Add in your tea bags and seep for 10 mins then remove tea bags and discard.
Next, add in the honey and stir till dissolved.
Once your tea has cooled completely, place the pitcher in the fridge and allow it to chill.
Serve over ice, and add some raspberries or mint leaves if you'd like.
