This red raspberry leaf iced tea is the perfect summer time drink! It’s SO refreshing plus it’s caffeine free, paleo, and AIP!
When the weather is warm I like having an iced drink to cool me off, I mean who doesn’t? I’m all about the refreshing drinks, like this strawberry electrolyte drink I recently posted. But I like variety and there’s just something about an iced tea, it’s classic!
And I’ve been making AIP iced tea for awhile now so I thought it was about time I have a recipe for it on the blog! Plus this one is really simple to make since it only uses three ingredients (four if you include ice)!
What you need to make this Red Raspberry Leaf Iced Tea
Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
Now you can make this with green tea or even regular tea if you’re ok with the caffeine content, but I prefer using red raspberry leaf tea.
Red raspberry leaf tea has many health benefits including:
- full of nutrients and antioxidants
- may help improve fertility
- tones and strengthens the uterus/prepares womb for pregnancy and chidbirth
- may shorten labor
- can help relieve pms
- detoxifying and may aid weight loss
- may help balance hormones
*Generally it is recommended pregnant women avoid red raspberry leaf tea until 32 weeks of pregnancy.
I personally use traditional medicinals red raspberry leaf tea!
Sometimes I will use honey or even lakanto sugar (not AIP) in my iced teas. However, I chose to use coconut sugar for this particular recipe because it makes the tea look darker and more like classic iced tea, and I kinda love that!
Gotta have that tang! And lemon has such great health properties as well. Not only is lemon full of vitamin C, which is detoxifying, but it can also aid digestion and work as a mild laxative, keeping things moving!
Obvi, because it’s iced tea! 😉
