I wanted to share these wonderfully refreshing drink recipes from the lovely Kimberly Snyder. I first posted about her book The Beauty Detox Solution almost exactly a year ago. It is such an amazing book and if you want to really make a change in your life for the better that will improve you health and wellbeing inside and out I strongly recommend it. I only wish that I didn’t have such abominably bad will power because I haven’t managed to stick with the plan. A month doesn’t go by that I don’t think about finally committing to the change but I never seem to fail at coming up with excuses.
Anyways, enough about my display of inadequacy. Here are some yummy drink recipes that are a great alternative to the not so healthy options surrounding us this summer. These drinks not only taste great and are good for you but they are beautifying as well!
Iced Rooibos Mint Tea
Rooibos tea is high in antioxidants and flavonoids, so it promotes youthfulness and great skin. Over a little ice with mint and lemon, it’s a refreshing and detoxifying summer beverage.
· 6 Rooibos tea bags
· One lemon, sliced
· Several leaves of fresh mint
· Stevia to taste
· 1 gallon of boiling water
Pour water over lemon, teabags and mint leaves and steep, stirring occasionally, until liquid cools. Remove tea bags, pour into a pitcher, and refrigerate. Serve cool or over a little bit of ice.
