Pure Leaf Iced Tea

Pure Leaf

There is nothing better then fresh brewed iced tea during the summer.  I normally drink my tea as unsweetened, with no lemon flavoring.  Probably pretty boring to a lot of people.  My kids even love iced tea, which I find a little strange since I do drink it a pure iced tea.

As much as I love iced tea, I don’t always have enough time to brew it.  I know it does not take a whole lot of time, but this summer has just been a bit crazy.  That’s one of the reasons I was very excited to try out Pure Leaf Iced Tea.  I was very curious if it could stand up to the home fresh brewed.

I received 3 varieties: Sweet Tea, Unsweetened and Lemon. As you can see from the empty bottles above, I opened up the unsweetened iced to check out that one! I have to say, it was pretty good!  It did have a slightly different taste, but definitely a great alternative. It is rather convenient to just grab a bottle out of the refrigerator for a quick drink.

With the bottles of iced tea came some Pure Leaf Tea recipes.  I had never really thought of adding tea to a recipe, so I was very intrigued by what I saw.  The recipe below is the one I chose, and felt the kids would enjoy as a treat as well.

This is a very refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot summer day!
Recipe type: Cocktail
Serves: 4
  • 16 ou Pure Leaf Iced Tea with Lemon or Pure Leaf Unsweetened, chilled
  • 2 c Frozen strawberries
  • 1 c Fat free vanilla ice cream
  • 1 T Sugar
  1. In blender, process all ingredients until smooth. Serve immediately in tall glasses and garnish, if desired, with fresh strawberries.

I made this recipe using the Pure Leaf Unsweetened Iced Tea.  My oldest daughter was very leery of this drink.  She read the recipe and did not think the combination of strawberries and ice cream would taste very good with tea.  I have to say all three of my children, and myself thoroughly enjoyed this smoothie.  My oldest daughter said she could taste the iced tea and claimed to not really like it, however she had two servings of it!  I believe she was trying to get more dessert out of me by claiming to not like the first one.  She is smooth, but not that smooth!
