Blueberry-Lemon Ice Tea

Yum

Summer vacation is in full swing and my kids and I decided that we needed to make something  fun to drink.  Who wants plain ice tea when you can jazz things up with blueberries that are full of antioxidants and brain-boosting vitamins.  


Ingredients: 
2 cups of frozen blueberries
5 cups of water
1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice (2-3 lemons worth)
1/2 cup up to a 1 cup of sugar or sugar substitute (depending on how sweet you like it)
plenty of ice

Bring frozen blueberries, 1 cup of water and 1/2 a cup of lemon juice to a boil in a saucepan. Stir occasionally.  Remove from heat.
Pour the blueberry mixture through a wire-mess strainer and use a spoon to squeeze out the juice.  Discard the blueberry solids that do not go through the mesh.
 In the same saucepan that you made boiled the blueberries, heat 4 cups of water.  Once boiling, turn off the stove and add 4 teabags.  Allow tea to steep for several minutes and then remove the teabags.  Pour tea into pitcher with the blueberry mixture.  Add a lot of ice.  Allow to chill and serve with ice.  Enjoy.
