Regular exercising is a sure result way to tone up your body and reach the ideal weight. You can choose from many different types of exercises such as aerobics, power yoga, dancing, running, playing, skipping and walking.

A Refreshing Summer Drink – Iced Green Tea Lemonade

Yes, summer just started! So, it’s time to savor some sizzling summer-special drinks and eats such as a refreshing iced green tea lemonade. Lemon and sugary drinks are hot favorite in hot summer days and you know why. And adding green tea to the fresh lemon juice and water sweetened using sugar or honey will add more to your health benefits as well as refreshment.

It is quite easy to prepare this energizing and yummy (I find it yummy!) iced green tea lemonade at home. So, at least it doesn’t make sense to me why I need to pay a large amount every month to grab the antioxidant rich green tea made using preserved syrups which are more harmful to your body than good.

Ingredients you will need,

  • Fresh lemon
  • Sugar or honey
  • Ice cubes
  • Hot water
  • Cold water
  • Green tea (both loose leaf green tea and green tea bags will do)

Estimated Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Method (to prepare 2 Cup of Iced Green tea Lemonade):

  • Take 1-2 teaspoon of loose leaf green tea in a container.
  • Pour some hot water over the green tea leaves in the container and close the vessel for 3-5 minute.
  • Filter the green tea drink in a glass and mix it with lemonade (a mix of water, fresh lemon juice and sugar; make sure you prepare lemonade using cold water)
  • Top it off with 2-3 ice cubes and then keep it in a refrigerator for 5-10 minutes
  • Your cool green tea drink is ready, guzzle down it whenever you want!

This green tea recipe flaunts rich flavors of fresh- steeped green tea leaves and lemons along with the high nutritional values of the ingredients. And more interestingly, it can be instantly prepared for events of all kinds like picnic, cocktail party, social gathering or a summer trip.

Are you hosting a party at your home this weekend for your loved ones or friends? Why don’t you consider preparing this iced green tea recipe at home? You can also serve it with burger, pizza or any other fast food item you may want.

The summer special drinks you try at some famous outlets or labels typically use some preservative and sugar syrup which will simply do no good to your health and increase your calories. Thus, I strongly recommend having the honey version of this iced green tea lemonade or save on calories.

Honey contains a good amount of vitamins, antioxidants and mineral that are good for health. And lemons are a rich source of Vitamin C and antioxidants. So, prepare your lemonade and mix it with a cup of Arthealth green tea.

I have come across many recipes over the web that recommend preparing a large batch of green tea and then store it in a refrigerator, which can be used later whenever needed. But many studies claim that Catechins in green tea degrade over time and thus if one wants to ensure the maximum amount of antioxidants from the leaves, it is always wise to brew your cup fresh.

What’s more, this recipe is scalable! You can also prepare its fruit version adding blueberries and raspberries. Or you can also top it off your drink with a few leaves of fresh mint, or with 2-3 slice of strawberry and pineapple.

Those who are more of a taste-conscious can simply do gargling with a warm and freshly brewed cup of green tea to prevent the onset of swine flu. It will also help fight other normal flus and cough. Typically, a litre of good quality green tea contains 5000 to 7000 micromoles of EGCG which is 5 to 7 times more of the concentration needed to prevent the onset of influenza flus, including swine flu.

An ancient Chinese proverb says “Better to be deprived of food for three days, than green tea for one”

Some other benefits of green tea,

  • Fight free radicals
  • Boost healthy cells
  • Increase physical strength and stamina by 30%
  • Remove aches and pains in joints
  • Has 25-100 times the effectiveness of Vitamin C and E found in fruits and vegetables
  • Lower high blood pressure and ensure stability
  • Prevent cancers
  • Improve overall metabolism rate of your body
  • Cure bad breath and give healthy skin

Perhaps these are the reasons green tea is fast replacing black tea and coffee in Asia, Europe and in other continents. The green tea culture is growing in India!

However, it is strongly recommended that you avoid taking pre-mix green tea bags. Instead make a fresh and plain green tea cup on own as and when needed. If needed, you can add lemon, tulsi, mint, ginger and honey for added health benefits as well as taste enhancement.

To brew it the right way, allow water to get some bubbles, add some tea leaves in a vessel and then let it steep for 5 minute so hot water can absorb the healthy chemicals and rich flavour of green tea into it. You can drink it hot or have it with ice as well. Keep drinking 2-5 cups a day for the best results.

While drinking green tea doesn’t 100% isolate you from the swine flu infection, we can’t deny the fact that it can reduce the chances of getting infected by 50-60%. And there is no reason why we will not try every home remedy to build up the immune system of our loved ones!
