Fresh Cantaloupe Green Iced Tea

There are two of a few favorite drinks in my family, fresh iced tea and fresh cantaloupe juice. Cantaloupe juice is incredibly refreshing and can be easily turned into a fabulous summer cocktail. ;)

I recently purchased an iced-tea pitcher. What's great is that there is a cylinder in the middle of the pitcher to keep the tea bags in while you steep your hot tea while in fridge, turning it into iced tea!

This afternoon, I found a cantaloupe behind the fridge and was craving for some iced tea. So, I thought why not combine my two favorite drinks into one, an refreshing Fresh Cantaloupe Green Iced Tea.

  • One ripe cantaloupe – seeded and roughly chopped
  • 4-5 Green Tea bags
  • 6 cups of hot water
  • 1/4 cup of simple syrup

Blend the cantaloupe, hot water and simple syrup together until smooth.

Add the tea bags in the iced tea pitcher.

Pour the cantaloupe juice in the pitcher and let the tea steep in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Serve in a tall glass filled with ice.
