3 Ingredient Kool-Aid Recipe
Did you know you could make a beautiful “Kool-Aid’ alternative with hibiscus flowers that tastes like ‘Kool-Aid’, too? With the downside of dyes and aspartame in Kool-Aid, many people are going to safer more natural drinks.
I just saw hibiscus flowers are on sale at the Bulk Herb Store for the last few days of July at a really good price, and thought I would share this Cool Recipe as we reach the height of summer. This is a really great price given that you can also dye cloth and yarn with red hibiscus flowers. Their sale ends July 31st.
My ‘Better Than Kool-Aid’ recipe is made like a tea using three herbs and served cold on ice:
Stevia leaf is known for its amazing sweetness and smoothness~
Hibiscus flower gives off its bright red color and has a sweet tart taste that really quenches your thirst~
…and Peppermint leaf is so cooling on a hot summer’s day~
Besides tasting terrific, a great thing about my alternative is that it is sugar-free and dye-free. It has a lot of extra healthy benefits as it’s loaded with Vitamin C and bioflavonoids.
Here is the simple recipe:
Pour 2 cups of boiling water over:
Let steep for 15 to 20 minutes then strain into a 1/2 gallon pitcher. Add several cups of ice and fill the rest of the way with cold water. Stir and enjoy!
