Today’s summer recipe of the Matchmaker Fruity Cupid Watermelon Slushies is brought to us by talented crystalhughes
Hi! It is Crystal from www.crystalhughes.ca. I was super excited when Tea and the Gang asked me to play around with The Matchmaker tea and come up something wonderful and I think I nailed it!
Summers here in British Columbia, Canada is hot. I mean 104 degrees most days! To keep my girls and the family cool, we make lots of healthy summer treats that we can eat on a daily basis. Healthy eating is huge in this house. Being a Wellness Coach, I make sure my family has the best food to help them thrive. This slushie hits all the healthy check marks, as it can be made sugar-free using stevia or sweetened with a natural sweetener of your choice.
This watermelon fruity cupid slushie is one of those summertime staple refreshments and is the perfect mid-afternoon cool me down.Tea and the Gang’s Fruity Cupid Matchmaker tea has the perfect blend of flavors to take this watermelon slushie to the next level. Watermelon is rich in antioxidants, electrolytes, and water. So this slushie will help rehydrate the body in this hot heat. The apple, hibiscus, rose hip, goji berries, lemongrass, freeze dried raspberries, coconut, and pineapple flavors in this tea infusion blend perfectly with the watermelon and lemon juice. The hibiscus in the tea is rich in vitamin C, minerals and antioxidants so I can feel good about my family drinking this tea down!
This recipe will give you enough to make some friends and make five slushies for that afternoon summer get together. We always make friends with our neighbors and make sure everyone has a cold treat for those afternoon outdoor chores.
