Mommy Tea…. It is a name that was affectionately given to this drink by my sweet little girl back when she was still little. She has since grown to a lovely young lady but the name has endured and she still get’s excited when I make it for her. When my children were little…. and especially when I had recently given birth, I would drink this sweet, fruity goodness all day long. It was “mommy’s tea”…. hence the name.
Don’t be fooled by it’s fun colors and sweet taste, it is actually quite nourishing for Mother’s and children and the last pitcher I made, my daughter suggested that we hide it from Daddy because he drinks it ALL!
Here’s What’s in it:
3 bags Tazo Passion Tea, (steeped in 2 cups of boiling water and then cooled)
1/4 tsp THM Pure Stevia Powder (or sweetener of choice)
1 tsp Vitamin C Crystals (optional for a vitamin boost)
1/2 Cup Pure Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
Steep tea and allow to cool. Add remaining ingredients, adding water at the end to make 2 quarts. Chill and serve.
