Ginger Green Tea
What a refreshing drink in the heat. Plus ginger works as an appetite suppressant while it stimulates digestion and other systems. Total win! Cut down that sugar by adding flavor - this recipe has about 1/2 tsp of sugars (2g) for an 8 ounce glass. Not bad for all that yumminess. If the ginger is too strong for you, eliminate the fresh ginger slices and use the tea bags only.
- 2 quarts water
- 1 bag green tea
- 2 bags ginger tea
- 3 fresh ginger slices (each slice is an 1/8" thick)
- 1 1/2 tbsp. high-quality light agave nectar
When the water and fresh ginger come to a boil, remove the heat.
Add the tea bags, and cover.
Let steep for 20-30 minutes.
After the tea steeps, add the agave nectar.
If you like it sweeter, increase the agave to 2 TBS. Chill and serve.
Other flavor ideas: add fresh mint, orange juice, lemon zest, or basil.
