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.
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!
You can also dye cloth and yarn with red hibiscus flowers.
