Our days are getting warmer and I’m dreaming up cool summery treats. Today’s recipe is a sweet tea at it’s best. Fresh mint, lemonade and iced tea make up this yummy frozen treat. Is there anything more refreshing then iced tea? Why yes there is, frozen iced tea!Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Co.has come out with a brand new product, Lemonade Tea. There’s no hidden ingredients in this drink, it has just 4 ingredients – water, tea, lemons, and pure cane sugar.
This simple recipe is a very similar process to making as my Grapefruit Mint Sorbet (which is a family favorite around here).
Frozen Lemon Mint Sweet Tea
- 4 cups of lemonade tea (2 16 oz. bottles of Natalie’s Orchid Lemonade Tea)
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of water
- 3 tbsp. coarsely chopped mint
- lemon slices and frest mint for garnish
Start by making the mint simple syrup. Bring to a boil the water, sugar and mint. Boil for just one minute. Allow the syrup to cool completely. Pour through a strainer to remove the mint leaves. In a large bowl combine the syrup with the lemonade tea. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Following the instructions of your ice cream maker, freeze the sorbet. I have a Cuisinart Freezer
and it took about 20-25 mins to freeze completely. Transfer to an air tight container and freeze in the freezer for a couple more hours before serving.
This recipes makes about 6 generous servings. Garnish with a couple fresh mint leaves and a slice of lemon.
