Strawberry Iced Tea Recipe

267 Shares

I love making as many fun, fruit-flavored iced tea recipes as I can this summer! It keeps me interested and keeps the kids happy. Win-win, right?

One of the kids’ favorite flavors ever is strawberry. We occasionally go down to Sonic and get milkshakes as a treat, and every single time, since he’s been old enough to talk, Garrett has asked for strawberry. There was one time when I almost got him to try pineapple, but at the last second, he chickened out and went back to strawberry.

Hey, if you know what you like, go with it!

So anyway, this strawberry iced tea is really easy to make because all you need is your favorite sweet tea (or unsweet if you prefer) and some strawberries to infuse it with flavor.

I got some popsicle molds a few weeks ago, and now my kids have gone from drinking tea as often as possible to begging me to freeze it for popsicles. I’ve been doing it for a long time with iced peppermint tea (my favorite tea ever!), and I agree is so much more fun than just a boring ol’ drink!  Of course, the problem arises when they start asking for their “popsicles” five minutes after they’ve gone into the freezer and don’t stop!

Kids, ya gotta love ’em. 🙂
