Strawberry Pineapple Iced Tea / #From Our Dinner Table

 If you find refreshment in a glass of iced tea, then you are going to love this Strawberry Pineapple Iced Tea! It's simple to create and it's bursting with great flavor! 

This tea would be perfect for backyard get togethers, sitting on the porch watching the world go around, or picnics by the lake! No matter what you are doing, Strawberry Pineapple Iced Tea is refreshing, full of fun flavors and you will love it!

This tea is actually a sun tea. It sat for 3 1/2 hours in the sun brewing. I used a family size Luzianne iced tea bag and the sun did all the work! 


Strawberry Pineapple Iced Tea 

(printed recipe at end of page)

(makes 7 glasses of 16 oz. tea) 

5-16.9 ounce Purified Drinking Water Bottles

1 Luzianne Family Size Tea Bags

5-6 tbl. Turbinado Sugar

1-20 ounce can Pineapple Chunks

16 ounce package of Strawberries

1-Lime cut into 8 pieces

Ice

Skewer


Fill the jug with water from bottles.

 

Wash the berries and lime. Cut the lime in eight pieces and cut the tops off the strawberries.

Put the sugar, pineapple chunks, strawberries, and lime pieces into the water jug. The pineapple chunks will fall to the bottom of your jug. But no worries. They are fine there. Add the tea bag, put the lid on and tighten it. Take it outside to a sunny area and let it sit there. If you are not sure about the sugar amount, experiment with it. I used turbinado sugar because it has a bit of a unique taste, but white sugar or artificial sugar would work also. When I made this recipe, I started with 2 tbls. of sugar, and I felt that more was needed. If you think you want less sugar, start with less. You can always add more. 

 Doesn't this look refreshing and so full of flavor?!!



This jug of tea was done 3 hours after I set it in the sun. I tasted it to make sure it was done brewing. I looked for a taste that was mild, not bitter, and I made sure I could taste the berries and pineapple. Pour the tea into a pitcher, add 1 cup of ice or more if you wish, and garnish the pitcher by placing pineapple pieces and a strawberry on a skewer.

Enjoy your Strawberry Pineapple Iced Tea!

Creamy Kid Sized Smoothies / #SundaySupper

Do you sometimes have a difficult time convincing your kids or grand kids to eat their veggies? These 3 Creamy Kid Sized Smoothies might be able to help. All 3 different smoothies have one common denominator~frozen spinach! But all three have distinctly different tastes! These smoothies are so easy to make. Just put the ingredients in the blender and push "blend". 
Don't think that these smoothies are just for the kids! Adults love them too! I know I can always use some extra veggies!

Creamy Kid Sized Smoothies
(printable recipe at end of post)

Cherry Banana Smoothie
1 cup Milk
1/4 cup Orange Juice
1cup pitted Cherries (approx. 25)
1/2 Fresh Orange
1 cup frozen Peaches
1 peeled fresh Banana
1/4 cup frozen Spinach 


Berry Blast Smoothie
1 cup Diet Berry Blend V8 Splash Juice
1 cup Crushed Ice
8 ounce fresh Strawberries
1 cup fresh Blueberries
1/4 cup frozen Spinach 

Pineapple Mango Smoothie 
1 cup Orange Juice
1 cup frozen Pineapple Chunks
3/4 cup frozen Mango Chunks
1 peeled fresh Banana
1/4 cup frozen Spinach




To make the Cherry Banana Smoothie make sure you pit the cherries, and cut the bananas into chunks. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.

Put the Berry Blast Smoothie together by placing all the ingredients in the blender. Using the crushed ice put the "smooth" in smoothie and it tastes rich and delicious.
The Pineapple Mango Smoothie is very quick to make. The only prep you need to do is to peel and chop the banana into chunks. Mix everything together and blend.
