Hibiscus Flower Punch with Apple & Lemon

Today I created this delicious & fun drink that is both thirst quenching & healthy for these hot summer days. It has Hibiscus Flowers, Apple, Lemon and a small amount of Stevia to sweeten.  It is not only a beautiful, impressive drink, but delicious, fun and healthful. Kids and adults alike will love its taste, and the drink is a healthy alternative to high-sugar fruit punches. The punch has a vibrant, deep-red color that makes it look like traditional fruit punch. You can watch the video below to show the health benefits of Hibiscus Herbal Tea.

Hisbiscus Flower Punch with Apple & Lemon

5 Cups water (bring to a boil)
1 Tablespoon loose Dried Hisbiscus Flowers (buy in bulk packages at Health Food Store) or 4 tea bags
1 Apple
2 Lemons
1 1/2 tsp. Stevia (3 packets)

Put 1 Tablespoon Hisbiscus Flowers in Tea Holder Use Stainless Steel Tea Infuser Let sit for 15 minutes and remove infuser.
After cooling a bit, put 2 of the cups of hibisicus water in a blender with the apple (sliced) and the juice of 2 lemons.  Blend well.  Strain tea through nut milk bag and mix with the other 3 cups of tea.  Add ice and enjoy.  Garnish with lemon slices. If you have a juicer, you can juice the apples and add to the drink instead of blending and straining through a nut milk bag. Pin It
