I’ve fallen into a flavored tea trap lately.
I go through these weird beverage cycles, and at the moment, it’s all. things. flavored tea.
And if I’m not careful, I could really be packing on some calories by consuming store-bought or restaurant flavored teas without checking labels! Most flavored teas are full of, for lack of a better term, crap!
Brew your own unsweetened tea (I love China Mist!), and then make your own simple syrups to add some yummy flavor. It’s easy, you control everything that goes into it, and you don’t have to feel like you’re consuming empty calories! 🙂
Pomegranate simple syrup
Health benefits of pomegranate.
1 cup pomegranate juice (like POM)
1 cup raw, unfiltered honey (the cloudy stuff!)
1/2 cup water
1. In a pot on medium heat, simmer all ingredients until the honey thins and dissolves.
2. Cool and stir into your favorite unsweetened iced tea. Add frozen blackberries for a little something special!
*Store in an airtight bottle for up to 3 weeks!
