Peach Plum Iced Tea





Its another hot summer day and I'm craving something cold to drink!

I have peaches and plums (using seasonal fruits in everything I make!) Why not do an iced tea?



Because I have little ones who will no doubt want a sip and I'm pregnant I want to cut down on the caffeine so I'll be using half herbal tea in this recipe.




Peach Plum Iced Tea

Ingredients:
3 small-medium peaches sliced and pitted (don't worry about the skins)
3 medium plums sliced and pitted ( I had red... but you use what ever you have)
2 lemons juiced
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
7-8 tea bags (I used 4 chamomile tea bags and 3 English)
5 cups of boiling water
1.5 cups water (for peaches)

Directions:
Bring your 5 cups of water to a boil, steep your tea bags for about 5 minutes.
Remove bags set your hot tea aside.

On stove top in a medium pan, add in fruit, lemon juice, honey and water. Bring to a boil then turn heat down to low leaving it to simmer for 10 minutes.



Remove fruit from heat and with a potato masher mash mash mash! Pour tea then juice through a fine sieve to separate juices from pulp and skins.


Stir fruit juice, tea, and 1/2 cup of sugar together in a 1.5-2 qt pitcher.
Refrigerate till its nice and cold. Serve with ice, lemon wedge, and fresh peaches and plum slices.
I am currently enjoying this glass under my tree outside watching my kids play in an outdoor "bathtub" yes... we filled the kiddie pool with bubble bath! No worries though its biodegradable soap!!

  1. This drink looks delicious! I can't wait to try it...

    I found those popsicle molds actually at HomeGoods/TJMaxx. I was looking for fun molds and just happened to run into these while looking for something else! Thanks for checking out The Yellow Apron Experiment too!
