I’d like to introduce you to Recipe Redux–a monthly recipe challenge founded by Registered Dietitians. The goal is to take everyday dishes and make them healthier, while keeping them delicious. And that’s what I’m all about! At the end of each Recipe Redux post, be sure to check out the links to other blogs for plenty of great recipe ideas!
This month’s Recipe Redux theme is Summer Beverages–and I knew exactly what I wanted to do! This is not your typical summer iced tea. Green tea is a lighter, but equally refreshing alternative to black tea. Green tea, which is minimally processed, has a high flavonoid content. Flavonoids are dietary compounds that help maintain normal healthy, heart function. The orange-mint syrup is simple to make and provides a hint of sweetness and flavor.
