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~

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.

    I’m so glad you posted this, Jacqueline. I had purchased Bulk Herb Store’s organic Festiva tea blend last winter and enjoyed it hot, but I think it might make a great iced drink, too. Those hibiscus flowers do give it a beautiful color. Hope you are enjoying the last of July. We’re enjoying an unseasonably cool spell here in the South. Thank the Lord! Have a wonderful day! :)
