Family friendly sweet fruit tea

I thought trying a fruit tea recipe would be a terrific way to get my family to stop drinking sodas and eat more wholesome fruit.

What type of sweetener?

This iced tea recipe is sweetened with a no calorie sweetened making it super low in calories, too.

I choose powdered monk fruit sweetener. You can use stevia, Swerve Sweetener, or your favorite no calorie sweetener.

What type of fruit?

The fun thing about fruit tea recipes is that you can add your favorite fruits, or whatever’s in season or on sale.

Try grapes, oranges, berries, peaches – the sky’s the limit.

Try frozen fruit, too, which is super convenient since it’s already cleaned and sliced.

Frozen fruit also keeps your iced tea nice and cold as it thaws.

How to make fruit infused iced tea

It’s super easy to make this fruit infused iced tea recipe.

1. First, pour fresh water from the tap into your kettle. (I use an electric kettle, which is a MUST if you’re a tea drinker.)

2. Then pour boiling water over tea bags and let brew for 5 minutes.

3. Remove tea bag, squeeze, and let tea cool for 30 minutes.

To simplify the ice tea making process, I use a 2 Quart Takeya Iced Tea Maker. I keep the tea brewing in this and cool it down in the refrigerator.

4. Pour cooled tea into a pitcher.

5. Add your favorite no calorie sweetener and stir.

6. Add water, fruit, and serve in glasses filled with fruit and ice (if needed).

What kind of tea should I use?

I love making fun new iced tea recipes with Lipton One Gallon Sized Iced Tea Bags.

Not only does it make perfect iced tea, you only have one bag to deal with. There’s no need to unwrap or remove the tags from five or six individual tea bags. Making iced tea recipes are easy with Lipton Iced Tea.

If you’re a fan of Starbucks iced teas, save money and make your own at home!


Unlike the Lipton bags, the Tazo teas are quart sized bags. You can double up the bags if you’re using the 2 Quart Takeya Iced Tea Maker. Or just increase your brew time.

An ice tea recipe for cold & flu season

When I lived in the south, I learned that everyone drinks sweetened iced tea (sweet tea) year round.

But no matter where you live, it’s handy to have a refreshing ice tea recipe during cold and flu season when you need to stay hydrated.

Sometimes when I get winter colds, I switch it up between hot and iced tea. Iced tea makes my sore throat feel so much better and I feel iced tea was easier to drink.

Plus, a cold drink feels more refreshing when you have a fever.

So keep this iced tea recipe handy. Make it with a caffeine free ice tea like Tazo Iced Passion Herbal Tea.
