Green tea, orange, peach and mango cooler

Hello hello! It’s absolutely gorgeous outside today (well at least it looks that way from my window!), so I wanted to make something reminiscent of spring. It’s still pretty cold outdoors, but at least the sun’s shining. To bring a little more sunshine indoors, I made a green tea cooler with orange, peach and mango juice and a hint of lemon. It’s absolutely refreshing!

I was updating the site last weekend and realized that it’s been so darn long since I made any mocktails. I blame the cold weather! All I’ve been drinking is warm tea, milk or hot cocoa. The hot cocoa is actually more of an addiction – sometimes I’ll have three cups in a day. But don’t worry, it’s not the sugary kind. Just plain old cocoa powder with some warm milk… But since spring is near, why not make something more refreshing?

 

 

Making this cooler is as simple as it can get. Just brew some green tea (the loose leaf kind), cool it down and then add orange, peach & mango juice. Add a few ice cubes and a spritz of lemon and there you have it – sunshine in a glass…

 

 

Here’s how to make it…..

I found these really awesome ice cube trays that are shaped like citrus slices and I’ve been using them all the time for ice and even frozen juice. Aren’t the ice cubes gorgeous?
