The heatwave has arrived to the UK this weekend! Love it or hate it - there are many hot days ahead and it’s important to stay hydrated during the summer months. We love drinking tea at any time of the year, and so we’ve decided to bring you some exciting iced teatail (tea mocktail) recipes for the summer - starting from this week!
Where possible, we always recommend using fresh ingredients for best results.
Our first creation is the Teatime Summer Detox Smoothie: a delicious combination of fresh greens, lemon juice, spices and our ever popular Lemmune Superboost blend. If you like your drinks fresh and zesty, this one is perfect for you! Lemmune Superboost has a dose of lemongrass and goji berries, which with lemon juice and fresh ginger for a pleasant kick.
250ml of Lemmune Superboost infusion
1/2 bunch of fresh coriander
1 cup of kale (or spinach)
1 cup of cucumber
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp fresh ginger
Boil water and infuse 250ml of our lemune superboost blend. For our teatails we recommend leaving the tea to infuse longer than normal, about 5 to 7 minutes depending on taste.
Leave tea to cool down (you ca
n add a couple of ice cubes to speed up the process) then blend with all the other ingredients and ice.
That’s it! As simple as that :)
Our Teatime Summer Detox Smoothie is the perfect guilt-free drink for the hot days - surprisingly refreshing and light, it is a tasty way to help you reach your 5-a-day in the summer months. It also has a healthy serving of Vitamin C, which is essential to keep a strong immune system during the change of season. Enjoy!
