~ watermelon green tea fresca ~

You may have heard of the popular Latin beverage agua fresca, a refreshing drink that can be made by combining water and any number of fresh fruits. Well, I decided to expound on this idea, and instead of using water as the base of my drink, I used green tea. I am so excited to share this recipe with you. It’s wonderful, and so good for you.

for 2 servings:

1 and 1/2 cups sweet, seedless watermelon chunks

1 cup cold green tea

juice of 1/2 lime

3 Tablespoons sugar

1/2 cup ice cubes

4 large mint leaves

ginger ale or ginger beer

Place all ingredients, except the ginger ale, in the bowl of a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and top off with a splash of ginger ale. Enjoy immediately.

Happy TeaTime Tuesday!

    More perfection, my sweet Melissa! I really LOVE this! I’m making a number of dietary changes recently as I’m determined to alkalinize my system 🙂 I start my morning with room temp filtered water and the juice of 1 lemon, and then comes the green tea! After an hour or so comes organic Greek yogurt with just a bit of local honey and your AMAZING granola! :)I’m amazed at how much I love the green tea since I’ve always been such a coffee lover. Everything in your watermelon green tea fresca appeals to me tremendously! Thank you! xoxoxo
