I am looking forward to sharing some yummy recipes with all of our readers! I'm starting the week of with this Easy Peach Tea. The original recipe suggests creating the peach syrup then straining out the peaches, but I used my vitamix to blend it all up to keep the peaches incorporated into the beverage. It is sweet, fruity, with a touch of tea flavor. If you like more of a tea flavor I would double the tea bags. Fresh and fruity!

Easy Peach Tea adapted from Passion for Savings

Ingredients

Peach Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced

Tea
3 family sized iced-tea tea bags
1 quart water

Directions
  1. Bring syrup ingredients to boil. Then reduce heat to medium.
  2. Crush peach slices as you stir to dissolve sugar.
  3. Turn off heat cover and let sit for 30 minutes.
  4. Use an iced tea maker to run the water through and prepare tea.
  5. Blitz the cooled peach syrup mixture until puree is smooth in a good quality blender (I love my Vitamix). Blend into tea, refrigerate and serve chilled. Add fresh peach slices to tea if desired. (You can just pulse the peach mixture if you don't mind a little texture to your drink, or if you want it completely smooth, strain the peaches out of the syrup before adding to the tea.)
