Pomegranate Iced Green Tea

When the hot weather rolls around, I find myself looking to sip on something refreshing throughout the day. I think there's something about the heat that makes you feel less hungry, and simply want to keep hydrated.

Of course, the hotter it is, the more you sweat and the more energy your body expends to cool yourself down, so it's a great idea to keep a few hydrating drinks around. Sometimes you wanna drink something that's not water, ya know?

Also, I know it's super easy to inhale caffeine like it doesn't matter. I do it too! I love me a good iced coffee in the summer. But, in the afternoons, it's a good idea to lay off the caffeine, to help promote good sleep. This Pomegranate Iced Green Tea is a great option for that - you can easily find caffeine-free green tea. Here's to some good sleep!

Why Pomegranate?

Let's talk flavors. I think pomegranate is an underrated fruit. It's kind of hard to eat raw since it has all those little arils. This recipe is one of those times where I suggest that for ease, it's probably best just to buy pre-made pomegranate juice. Much easier.

Pomegranates are amazing! They, like most fruits, have tons of vitamins. They also have been found to have a high antioxidant content. They've also been shown to be anti-inflammatory. We might loose some of the nutrient content by drinking the juice instead of eating the fruit, but we'll still get some.

If nothing else, pomegranates are sweet and delicious. They pair so well with green tea!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
