Strawberry Chamomile Mocktail

Fruity and refreshing, this strawberry chamomile mocktail is spring in a glass! We love getting creative with RushTush products and thought that a light ice tea drink would be the perfect way to enjoy our new range of teas on warmer days. With extracts of chamomile, lavender, and vanilla, this tea pairs perfectly with the zestiness of grapefruit juice and the sweetness of honey.

INGREDIENTS:

CHAMOMILE HONEY SYRUP

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1-2 RushTush Calming Tea tea bags (purchase yours here)

FOR THE DRINKS

  • 1/3 cup  fresh grapefruit juice (about half of 1 grapefruit)
  • 2-4 tablespoons chamomile honey syrup
  • 4 fresh strawberries sliced
  • sparkling water
  • crushed ice

METHOD:

CHAMOMILE HONEY SYRUP

In a small saucepan, combine the water and honey. Bring to a low boil and then allow to simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add one or two RushTush Calming Tea tea bags (depending on how strong you want it). Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the teabag/s and allow syrup to cool.

FOR THE DRINKS

Add grapefruit juice, chamomile syrup, and strawberries to a glass. Use a muddler or spoon to slightly mash the strawberries.  Add a handful of ice and top off with sparkling water. Give the drink a gentle stir. Garnish with fresh chamomile flowers and more strawberries.

Cleoptra Smoothie from Vegan Glow

vegan-glow

Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was absolutely obsessed with almonds and included them in both her diet and beauty routine so it only seems fitting that this smoothie be named after her. The base of this dreamy creamy drink is almond milk, which is high in Vitamin E and low in sugar. The oat bran provides fibre and the chia seeds contain omega fatty acids, essential for brain health. The recipe calls for a cup of mixed berries but feel free to play around with different combinations of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc until you get the flavour balance just how you like it.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup of unsweetened Almond Milk
1 OR 2 Tablespoons of Pea Protein Powder
2 Tablespoons of Oat Bran.
3/4 Cup of Mixed Berries
1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds (soaked the night before)

METHOD:

Blend ingredients in a juicer OR a high watt blender to retain all the fibre for a slower release of nutrients
