Nothing Better Than an Iced Tea on a Hot Day…
It’s more important than ever to stay hydrated in the summer. Sweat flushes out a lot of water and may leave us dehydrated and tired. Remember, you can get the keto flu even if you’re keto adapted! Replenish your electrolytes by eating a healthy diet, getting enough salt and drinking lots of water.
But even aquaphiles get bored of water every now and then. I, myself, can drink more than 10 bottles a day and not need any other beverage. There are days when I’m craving something with a twist though, maybe even a sweet drink on that sweltering summer day.
Coffee in the mornings is usually iced cold brew these days but it’s quite a heavy drink. I’m not one for sodas or juices, even if they are sugar free. So along came a trip to my tea cabinet to try some refreshing iced tea! Since I was craving something fruity, I decided to pack as much sweetness into my iced tea without that carb count skyrocketing.
Infused water is great and all, but why not make it an infused tea! A simple tea bag can add so many benefits. I brewed a nice, strong Peach Passion Fruit back tea, along with some strawberries and lemon slices. I also added some Stevia to make it slightly sweeter. I ended up making a single serving, but I loved it so much, I whipped out my giant drink dispenser and made enough to last me a week!
The apple cider vinegar (ACV) is completely optional, but provides so many health benefits to the infused tea. Many studies show ACV helps reduce blood glucose in people with Type 2 Diabetes as well as increase insulin sensitivity. ACV also aids in weight loss, helps control blood sugar, boosts energy, improves immunity, metabolism, digestion, acne, hair, breath and more! Read about more benefits and sources here!
We also love to use ACV in this hot detoxifying tea in the winters when we’re not feeling the cold, harsh mornings.
Lastly, this is the perfect drink to make in bulk and pour into a travel tumbler for on-the-go hydration. Enjoy fruit infused tea everywhere you go!
