Apple Peach Tea

Summer and warm weather is just around the corner and having a cool refreshing drink on a hot afternoon is wonderful.  It's even better if it's on the healthier side and is nice on the budget :) .


This is a nice frugal way to stretch a 12 oz can of apple juice. With a little help from some tea bags I end up with a gallon of yummy apple peach tea. Here is how I do it..

You start with one 12oz can of frozen apple juice concentrate and 3 of your favorite bags of tea. I am using peach tea, but you can use any type you would like.



I put a pan of water on the stove (about 4 cups) and add my tea bags. I bring the water to a boil and remove it from the stove. I let this sit for about 30 to 40 minutes to get nice and strong.


 

Then I add some sweetener. I am using honey. I add about ¼ to 1/3 cup of honey. You can add sugar if you would like and I would suggest about ½ cup if you do. However if you don’t need your tea super sweet you can skip the sweetener altogether. The apple juice will sweeten it up some too.



Then I pour this mixture into a 1 gallon juice container



Then I add enough water to bring it to the 2 quart mark on the container

 

Then I add the can of apple juice


Finally, fill the container with water up the gallon mark on the container. That is it! Put it in the fridge to get cold and enjoy!

  1. That sounds delicious. I don't like the taste of our tap water and would rather not drink regular iced tea all the time. This will make a delicious and somewhat healthy treat.
