Lemon, Lime Iced Green Tea

I’m going to be totally cliche’ today and talk about how I just can not believe how fast this year is going?!

Seriously, ssssllllooooooowwwwwww ddddddoooooowwwwwnnnnnnnnnn!

How is it May already?!

I just can’t even believe it!

Tell me it’s not just me? Is this year flying past you too?



It can’t be!

But, you know what it does mean? Cinco de mayo is next week!!!!

Holla, love me an excuse to get my mexican feast on!

Lemon, Lime Iced Green Tea

Now, because May totally snuck up on me I don’t have a traditional mexican style recipe to share with you today however, if you look back through the archives you will see I have your little fiesta well and truly covered.

Today, what I do have for you is a nice tall glass of the most amazingly simple, light and refreshing {all natural} lemon, lime iced green tea.

You guys, this iced tea is the perfect way to wash down your mexican feast. Or to quench the strongest of thirsts at any time of day really. It’s seriously so light and fresh you are going to love it!

It’s crisp, clean, cool and refreshing.

This Lemon, Lime Iced Green Tea is all natural with no artificial colours, sugars, flavours or preservatives. It’s loaded with antioxidants and research shows that green tea not only helps to boost your immunity along with your metabolism but also aids with digestion and helps to lower cholesterol and prevent cancer  – what more could you ask for?

Whip up a big ol’ pitcher of this iced tea and your cinco de mayo table will be complete my friend.

Now, if you need help planning a menu for your cinco de mayo celebration I suggest you start by serving this ah-mazing Mango Pico De gallo with a big ol’ pile of your fave corn chips. Although, if you, or someone you know is a little scared of the fruity salsa we can no longer be friends you should totally make up a big ol’ bowl of this trusty old, restaurant style salsa instead. Or as well as. Options are always a good thing to have right?


Oh and of course you need a big old mountain of this killer guacamole. I mean you can’t have a mexican fiesta without guac! That would just be wrong!

You should serve this grilled avocado and “popcorn” bean salad as entree, or this ah-mazing vegetarian chilli, or these cheesy, avocado and black bean quesadillas, or why not just have a trio of entrees and serve a little of each? Like I said, options people 😉

For Main you could serve these Mexican BLT sliders, or these Mexican Meat Loaf Muffins or for something a little lighter you could serve these spaghetti squash and black bean tacos. I mean who doesn’t love a good taco?! If there is such a person I don’t want to meet that I can tell you that much. Kidding . . . kinda 😉

For Dessert you need these lemon, lime donuts. Wholewheat, oven baked and finished with the most amazing zesty, sweet lemon lime glaze. Ugh so, so good!

And you should wash it all down with a nice tall glass of this all natural, light and refreshing Lemon, lime Iced Green tea.

I have no idea why I didn’t think to make this tea sooner it’s seriously incredible. Light and refreshing, all natural and something the whole family will love.

Now excuse me while I photo bomb you with pics of my little lady.

This is what happens when you try to do a photo shoot when (pre-)school is out. I turn my back for one second and in girlfriend swoops and steals my tea!

But look at that little face . . . talk about time flying?! How is she so grown up already?!

Anyways, go make yourself a big ol’ glass of this all natural, light, refreshing, antioxidant rich lemon, lime iced green tea.

Actually, you better make a double batch because chances are, someone will come in while you have your back turned and swipe that ice cold glass of light, fresh, delicious, liquid gold before you have a chance to enjoy it and then there will be tears and we can’t have that now can we.

Make it, Drink it, Love it

    I have SO many tea bags that I need to use up before I go back home in a month so this is perfect. Your little girl is adorable and I love that you two are besties.
