Herbal Tea Recipes for You to Try:
Lemony Apple Cooler
Combining herbal teas with other beverages -- like lemonade or fruit juice -- can create new favorites. Here, apple juice complements the lemony-flavored tea.
It may be as simple as a mixture of lemon juice, sugar and water, but for many of us, lemonade is the ultimate summer refreshment. This simple drink has a long and interesting history and may legitimately be called old-fashioned, but it certainly isn't outdated.
If you have kids, you might want to give them the experience of running a lemonade stand. It's great for learning a little about business, dealing with people -- and it's fun!
• Provide a trash can for easy cup disposal.
• Mix the lemonade in a pitcher your kids can handle -- lightweight with a lid, for example.
• Set up the stand in a busy (but safe) location. Of course, you or another adult will need to supervise the kids -- preferably from a distance.
• Teach the kids the basics of a food service business -- clean hands, hair tied back, and an abundance of smiles and "thank-yous."
Keep it natural, one of these recipes for new twists on an old classic:
32 ounces cold water
1/2 cup of Frontier Lemonade Mix
1 cup boiling water
1 tbsp of Frontier Lavender Flowers
Prepare lemonade by mixing 32 ounces of cold water with a half-cup of Frontier Lemonade Mix. In a separate pan, pour one cup of boiling water over one tablespoon of Frontier Lavender Flowers. Strain and add to lemonade. Enjoy both the taste of lemonade and the delightful scent of lavender in your home.
Kids love the fruity flavors of drink mixes, and moms love serving products that are all natural, so everyone wins with Frontier's Drink Mixes! Choose from Fruit Punch, Orange or Strawberry Drink Mixes. They are refreshing, great tasting, and a natural alternative to soft drinks and other commercial drinks. (More economical, too.)
For a fun activity on those days when the chorus of "I'm bored!" begins, let the kids make their own fruit pops. Just mix a Frontier drink mix according to instructions, pour into popsicle trays and insert sticks, freeze, and voila! Instant mini-popsicles. For added fun, put a small sliced strawberry, pineapple or mandarin orange in each pop before freezing.
Cinnamon sticks aren't just for the holidays and neither are allspice, cloves, or nutmeg. While they may call up thoughts of snow and wintertime festivities, they can work their magic in late summer, too.
These spices come from tropical regions like Indonesia, the West Indies and Jamaica. With their origins in these warm climates, it makes sense to team them up well with the tropical fruits and flavors of Tropical Breeze. And Tea with a Punch provides a unique and festive beverage that combines the flavors of fruit juice, jasmine tea, cinnamon and cloves.
