Pomegranate Lime Iced Tea

As we’ve given up meat for the next month to support famine relief, I’ve been reading vegetarian/vegan cookbooks to get some ideas on what to eat for supper. So far we’ve been eating very well and are feeling great.  As I was flipping through The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone this morning, I happened to notice a recipe for Pomegranate Lime Iced Tea and thought I should give it a try.  As I looked closer though I realized I needed to tweak the recipe.  I am not a fan of sweetened iced tea and I didn’t have any fresh limes.  Here’s my variation on the original recipe. It’s tart, refreshing and completely satisfying on a mid-summer afternoon.  Enjoy! 

Pomegranate Lime Iced Tea

Ingredients:

  • 4 green tea bags 
  • 2 c unsweetened pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 c lime juice
Instructions:
  • Bring 8 c of water to a boil.
  • Pour into a tea pot with the 4 green tea bags.
  • After the tea has steeped and cooled a bit, add the pomegranate and lime juices to the pitcher.
  • Poor the green tea into the pitcher until it is full.
  • Chill in the fridge until desired temperature.
  • Enjoy!
Extra Information:
  • If you like sweetened iced tea, you’ll likely have to add a sweetener as this is quite tart.  Try maple syrup or honey for a natural boost.
