These days it seems like hardly anyone drinks fruit juice anymore. Whenever I ask people why they don’t drink juice, I get answers like “Sugar from fruit makes you fat” or “It’s just too much sugar.”
The argument that the sugar in fruit (fructose) makes you fat is weak at best, however I can see how some people find the sugar content in some of today’s juices to be way too high.
So here’s my simple solution for enjoying juice in the summer: Tea-Sangria!
- First, mix one cup of the juice of your liking with one cup water
- Next, boil water and make two cups of either green tea or white tea (let it steep for a minute or two).
- Then, mix the 2 cups of tea with the juice/water mix, add lemon slices, lime slices, some blueberries and lots of ice.
- Wait for it to chill and enjoy,
You get all the health benefits of tea and juice at only 7-10grams of sugar per glass!
