Quench Your Thirst With an Herbal Iced Tea Refresher

The following post was written by Lexie Croft, who blogs about food free of dairy, eggs, and gluten at Lexie's Kitchen and is part of POPSUGAR Select Food.

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!
