Honey Lemon Green Tea

on

No matter your job, where you work, or how active you are, at some point during the day you think to yourself, “I’m a little tired,” or you simply hit a slump.

Then what? I like to have a quick walk or get up and do something else for a bit. Hopefully you choose a healthy and natural way to perk up and don’t automatically grab that energy drink or soda.

lemonsBut for a little bit of a kick, go healthful and natural and try green tea! Not only does this drink increase your metabolism but with the added honey and lemon, it boosts your immune system too.

For one cup, steep a green tea bag and (when warm and NOT hot) add a teaspoon of honey and a squeeze of lemon. A dash of cinnamon is yummy too.

Or you can make a huge batch and keep it in the fridge for an easy to grab and healthy afternoon pick-me-up.

  • 16 cups of water
  • 16 organic green tea bags
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • 1/4 cup raw unfiltered honey

Heat the water to boiling. Remove from the stove top and steep the tea bags for 10 minutes. Let cool (to warm) for about half an hour and add the lemon and honey.

Tip: Honey has antibacterial properties and is very healthful for you. Heat damages honey so to reap these benefits, be sure to add honey to warm drinks dishes and not hot.
