A Juicy Iced Tea Recipe

Iced Tea Juice Recipe
By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Today is National Iced Tea Day!  Second only to water, tea is the next most prevalent beverage worldwide.   Tea played a key role in American history; think back to the Boston Tea Party.  New Englanders are among the greatest tea consumers although down-South tea, sweet tea in particular, is prevalent.  In 2014 Americans drank over 3 billion gallons of tea, with 85% being iced!

Tea, like many foods, can either be really healthy or sabotage your best intentions for clean eating, all depending on the context.  Tea consumption has been linked to reduced risk for certain cancers, diabetes and possibly cardiovascular disease.  Tea is rich in immune supportive phytonutrients like polyphenols, including catechins and epicatechins like ECGC and others found in green tea.  The optimal amount of tea per day generally ranges from 1-3 cups. But more is not always better.  Excessive tea intake has been connected to risk for kidney stones, due to oxalate content, may be detrimental for heart health because of caffeine or increased risk for obesity and diabetes when tea is loaded with added sugar.

Looking for a fresh, natural way to enjoy iced tea without all the added sugar and empty calories?  This Iced Tea “Juice” can quench your thirst and nourish your body.
