Hi! Welcome to the blog! I hope you are as excited about this discovery as I am… ‘cuz I’m really really really excited!
Deliciousness, no?! What if you could indulge in this classic summer favorite all the time? Even while sitting at your desk at work? Oh, and what if it was actually good for you?
Well thanks to Dr. Oz and a little creativity on my part (pats self on back)… YOU CAN!!
So I was watching Dr. Oz the other day and they were touting the health benefits of peppermint tea… but the gal who was the guest mentioned that she likes to drink hers cold… she said she just puts peppermint tea bags into ice water. Now there’s a super simple idea that had never occurred to me. So I tried it…..and it was yummy!
Then I spotted the lemon wedges I had just sliced up for my water and the light bulb went off! What if I put a lemon wedge into my peppermint water?? So I tried that and….. WOW!!! It really did taste just like our friend the peppermint speared lemon…. without the sticky gooey mess! Oh and then there’s the health benefits of drinking peppermint tea and lemon water … combined!! (I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist so you’ll have to google to learn about all of that.) You’re welcome:-)
I mixed mine in a 25oz water bottle with about 6 ice cubes, 1 peppermint tea bag and 2 lemon wedges. Hope you enjoy!!
Let me know if you try it out! Thanks for stopping by!
