Iced Green Tea Recipe

So no one really needs a recipe for Iced Tea but I’m on the hunt for quick healthy drink alternatives. You see,  I have been a coffee junkie. Coffee in the morning, again mid morning,  and how about an iced coffee (or two) in the afternoon. That’s way too much coffee.

Since I’ve been using essential oils, I decided to cut down on the coffee and drink more water. I have been very good about my water intake but still sometimes in the afternoon I still want my iced drink. I went in search of a something iced, something healthy and still felt like a treat. I found this recipe for Iced Green Tea, it was really good and the health benefits of Green Tea are spectacular. Next time I’ll put a drop of my doTERRA  peppermint essential oils for a little extra boost.
