Green Tea Soda

Rachel and I live in Florida, and just in case you didn't know it gets freaking hot here.
So swimming pools, beaches, springs, and lakes are must visit spots in summer, fall... spring... you know every season in Florida is hot!
So we always look for refreshing drinks that are both delicious and can cool us off.
This week we decided to give Green Tea soda a try.

For this recipe you will need:
4 green tea bags
4 cups water
1 cup of pineapple
1 cup blueberries
1 apple
a bottle of raspberry seltzer water
(not pictured) sugar or stevia to taste 
and a pitcher

You start off with boiling your water.

A little tip with your green tea bags, go ahead and cut off the tags. They would just end up in the water anyways.

Add your tea bags and boiling water to your pitcher.

Slice up your apple.

Add all fruit to the hot tea.

Put the tea in the fridge until it is cold and the fruit has helped to flavor the tea.
(about 3 hours)

Now you get yourself a glass fill it halfway with the fruit tea mixture and some ice.

Fill the rest of the glass with the seltzer water and add sugar.

Voila a healthy and delicious poolside drink to share with your friends!

And once you finish the drink you have a nice pool side fruit salad!

Rachel isn't a fan of green tea to begin with, so while she wasn't the biggest fan of it she said it wasn't horrible either. (She did drink 2 glasses of it)

This weeks pet pic is of Spot. He is a 16 year old Peekapoo (half pekingese, half poodle)
Fun story, when we got him as a puppy and I found out what he was I wanted to call him Pikachu, but my mom not wanting weird names for pets named him Spot.
He enjoyed some vanilla ice-cream while I ran my errands.
