Cool Strawberry Lemonade Zinger - Flavored Water Tea

Submitted by: ASKCHER
Cool Strawberry Lemonade Zinger - Flavored Water Tea

Introduction

Makes water less boring Makes water less boring
Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1/2 Cucumber
    1 Knuckle fresh Ginger
    Fresh Mint Sprig crushed or 2 Herbal Mint tea bags steeped
    1 Meyer Lemon juiced
    1 Cup Strawberries fresh or frozen
    1 Gallon Water

Directions

Peel ginger & cucumber

Puree ginger, cucumber, mint leaves, strawberries in food processor

To 1 gallon water add puree, if using tea bags add at this time.

Let mixture & tea bags sit overnight in frig

Next Day

Add the juice of one lemon to the mixture before straining

Strain into another gallon size container

Discard pulp

Enjoy ice cold

Keep refrigerated at all times

Stores well for up to 2 days

I also make this tea into ice cubes to take to work - I plop 2 cubes into a 16 oz glass for a very light refreshing flavored water

Due to the fact you discard the pulp I think there would be less than 5 calories in this mixture ?

  • This sounds delicious. I think I will try it when I get home tonight. The real test is if it makes it through the first day, if my kids like it will be gone in a matter of hours. - 7/23/10

  • I've heard this called "Sassy Water" before, too. You mince the ginger, slice the cuke and lemon thinly, and put the mint leaves in whole. Very fast and easy. It's an excellent drink--very refreshing. I have no problem drinking a lot of water but this really tastes good and helps consumption. - 3/14/10
