Summer's in full swing and the mercury is climbing. Today would be the perfect day to mix up a thirst quencher that's sure to stir up memories of the Kool-Aid Summers of your childhood. And though it may look like Kool-Aid, it is far better for you.
This refresher starts with a base of fruity herbal tea. A few dashes of raw apple cider vinegar are added for tang, and a little stevia balances it all out. The only things missing are the artificial flavors and a good dose of Red #40!
If you're trying to give up sugary juices and drinks, give this one a go.
