If you’re looking for a tangy drink to cool you down in this crazy summer heat, this pomegranate iced tea might just do the trick. I have to warn you though, it’s pretty tangy, I mean, sour. Since we made it for the whole family (including miss L) we didn’t add any sugar so it definitely has a bit of a sour tinge to it. But L eats lemons whole so that didn’t really stop her from drinking a whole cup.
Pomegranate was a great choice for this iced tea as it’s packed with antioxidants and fibre and surprisingly, protein. Just make sure to either juice the pomegranate or if you blend it, strain it so that you remove the pulp as that would definitely spoil the fun.
Have fun! Stay cool!

If you want to speed up the cooling time you can add a few ice cubes. If you're making this for older kids or adults you may want to add some sugar 🙂
