03 Jul Zesty Energy – Orange Sunshine Iced Tea Cooler Recipe
These past few days have been so gorgeous and summery. Waking up and seeing the sunshine peek through the window is the best #MorningMotivation ever!
This is when living in London really pays off. You get awesome creative opportunities, paired with the weather that makes you feel like you’re on a never-ending holiday.
However, come the midday sun and I sink into a slump. The heat makes me sleepy and incredibly lazy… haha
That’s why I came up with this refreshing and incredibly invigorating summer cooler, which you can easily make at home!

This recipe is incredibly easy to make. Since our fridge is rather tiny, we prefer making a concentrated fruit tisane first, cool it down and then dilute it with cold water and lots of ice. I would also recommend making larger quantities of the concentrate as that’s what takes the longest to prepare. Depending on your fridge it’ll take 2-4 hours for it to cool down fully. If you have a massive fridge you’re welcome to try cold brewing the fruit tisane over night as that’s meant to preserve the most amount of vitamins and nutrients
