Hi curlies!

This week I made a selfmade iceteamix and drank like 3/4liter a day of it... And I lost 2kilos in one week time! (I don't really know if that's the reason, but I'm sure it helped)

So .... my icetearecipe:
You'll need: water, 2 tea bags green tea, cranberryjuice and sweetener.
I first boiled water and put 500ml of it in a bowl, then I left it cooling down for 10 minutes and I left the 2 green tea bags in it for 5 minutes (I cooled it down because green tea gets bitter at a temperature of 100°C, you have to let it cool down to +- 80 degrees).
After those 5 minutes I removed the tea bags and let the tea cool down until it was cold. Then I added 250ml of cranberryjuice (which makes 750ml in total) and 1,5 tablespoon of sweetener.
To be served cold!

Enjoy!

    I'm not a fan of cranberry but I can see how that would be really good. Maybe I can try something similar with a pure natural raspberry juice or something. I really enjoy green tea, but I'm always careful about the water temp & steeping time :)

    You can substitute pomegranate for cranberry. Something that is easier is to dilute Welch's grape juice with water and drink it 30 minutes before each meal. Decreases your appetite and keeps your blood sugar down thus keeping your body from storing excess fat.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
