Watermelon Mint Iced Tea Frappé

What could be more refreshing on a hot summer’s day than ice-cold watermelon blended with cooling peppermint tea? This healthy iced tea is naturally caffeine-free and low in sugar, so you can enjoy it at any time of day.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Nerada Organics Pure Peppermint tea bags
  • 1 sprig of fresh mint, plus extra leaves to garnish
  • 5 cups chopped watermelon
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 2 cups ice cubes

METHOD

Pour 400ml boiling water into a heatproof jug. Add the tea bags and mint sprig and infuse for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and mint sprig and chill until cold.
Place the watermelon in a blender and blend until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug. Rinse blender, then return watermelon juice to the clean blender. Add lime juice and ice cubes, and blend to a thick frappé consistency, adding more ice if necessary.
Add chilled peppermint tea to blender and pulse until just combined. Divide frappé among short serving glasses and garnish with mint leaves to serve.
