Good evening peeps!

So to update everyone, it is REALLY HOT in Dubai.

Also, I am tired of buying drinks which are just plain sugar. Even Iced teas are just filled with a lot of sugar. Occasionally it is ok, but on a regular basis it is not healthy and also expensive i.e- slowly affects your health and budget.

So without further ado, lets’ begin the recipe for my drink of the weekPeach Iced Green Tea. You can take this to work/ picnics etc. It is a refreshing, sweet and light drink. Perfect for Summer 🙂

The sugar is reduced, also you get the benefits of green tea with mint, which is great to cool down your body during these scorching hot months.

Makes up to 1 big bottle to chill and store in the fridge to last up to 1 week.

Ingredients:

-Green tea and mint tea bags- 5 sachets (Any brand will do)

-Fresh peaches- 3 chopped

-water- 5 cups

-Honey-2 tbsp

-Ice cubes-7

-Dried mint- 1 tbsp (you can get it from any supermarket, in the spices and dried ingredients section)

Method:

-Boil the tea bags and let the tea water cool. Discard the tea bags.

-Boil the peaches, let the flavor simmer, till they are nice and squishy. The idea is to make a puree’.  Sieve it in a bowl, remove as much of the juice as possible. Discard the dried pulp. Let it cool.

Mix the tea water with the peach puree’. Add 2 big tbsp of honey, mix well. Get a jug or a glass bottle of choice, add in the tea.

Add 5 cups of water and the dried mint. Mix really well. Keep it to chill in the refrigerator.

Add in the ice cubes, at the time of serving.

Serve it in fancy glasses or mugs, the choice is up to you. Cheers & Enjoy 🙂

CHUNKY LEMONADE (Beverage)

Standard

Hello folks.

Hope you are enjoying your holidays and the last few days of 2016. When I look back at this year, its been crazy for me. Mentally, emotionally,financially, physically challenging to say the least. It has been the end of a lot of things for me, that’s for sure i.e end of giving way too much love to people who don’t deserve it or value it.

2017 will be the start of many new things, such as directing the love towards myself, valuing myself, learning to respect myself in every form. I know it doesn’t happen in just a day, but its a promise, lifelong promise to yourself.To keep working at yourself, for yourself.

All in all, I would say it has been a sweet and sour year for everybody.

Inspired from that sweet & sour feeling, is our last post of 2016, CHUNKY LEMONADE Yay!

It is this amazing refreshing drink, it first hits you on the sweet spots of your taste buds, then Bam! hits you with its zingy sourness. It is like eating candy only healthy and doesn’t give you a sugar high 😀
