Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

I bought some lemon thyme (a lemony-tasting thyme plant as the name suggests) from Whole Foods a few months ago and it’s been flourishing in the garden despite the drought here.

And since it’s been so hot in California over the past few weeks, I thought some lemon thyme infused iced tea would help cool things down a bit.  And if you prefer a sweet-tasting iced tea, then try the plum infused tea recipe here.

Plum Infused Iced Tea Recipe

Plum Infused Iced Tea Recipe [No Added Sugar, Easy, Delicious, Healthy]

My mum’s plum tree went crazy this year, and we had plums everywhere. If you open the fridge, there’s a whole bucket full of juicy plums, and if you walk outside, you have to be careful not to squish any plums that rolled onto the ground!

So, to help her eat her delicious plums, I’ve been devising new recipes using them.

This plum infused iced tea is superb for the summer months – plus it’s simple and gives a nice twist to your typical iced teas.

Paleo Drinks: Harmless Harvest Raw Coconut Water

Harmless Harvest: 100% Raw Coconut Water

What is it?

This is a raw (& organic) coconut water drink i.e., it has been heated (although what I couldn’t find exactly what temperature they keep their process under).

Coconut water is the liquid in the center a coconut (it’s mostly water with a little bit of sugar and minerals from the coconut). So, if you cracked a coconut in half, it’s the water-like liquid that would splash out.

Note that coconut water is different to coconut milk, which comes from the meat of the coconut and is high in fat.

Is raw better?

I’m not huge into raw foods – yes, it’s often more nutritious because cooking does destroy some of the vitamins and minerals as well as the antioxidants, but cooking also helps us absorb more of the nutrients. But, I love trying random new foods, so I picked one of these drinks up in Whole Foods despite its rather hefty price tag.

And boy was I glad, because this Harmless Harvest Raw Coconut Water tasted AMAZING!

Coconut Masala Chai Tea (Paleo, Dairy-Free)

coconut masala chai tea (paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free)

Our time in India was fantastic (3 Indian cooking classes, a camel ride in the Thar desert, meeting random travelers, seeing the beautiful Lakes of Udaipur, marveling at the amazing colors in Jodhpur, and so much more). It’s definitely gotten me excited about cooking more Indian dishes too.

One of the most common things we had in India was Masala Chai (Tea). We drank it with fresh goat’s milk in the middle of the Thar desert with some villagers, we had it at a random deserted road-side stall, and we made it in every single cooking class we attended.

Indian Masala Chai

Everyone in India seems to have their own special family blend for Masala Chai, and there are lots of blends for sale in the US (e.g., this one on Amazon). I bought a small amount from Shashi in Udaipur, India, but I wanted to make my own as well (for fun and for when I run out).

The Spices in Masala Chai

Here are the spices I used for my mix (there are lots of different possibilities, but these are some of the basic ones). Feel free to Pin the photo below! (There are links to purchase the individual spices in the recipe box below.)

The Ultimate Paleo Coffee

THE ULTIMATE PALEO Coffee recipe

Watch the Bloopers at the End!

This coffee is what I’ve been loving recently! And I’m showing you how to make it in my very first video on YouTube – I even designed my channel art last night (*feeling smug*).

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel here or click the link the video – I have more videos in the pipeline, including one on my favorite salad.

A Few Quick Tips on How to Make Paleo Coffee

1. Start slow – by this, I mean that if you’re not used to eating much fat, then I would put in just 1 teaspoon of ghee + 1 teaspoon of coconut oil initially until your body adjusts after a few weeks.

2. Use good ghee – this is the ghee I use (it tastes absolutely AMAZING – in fact, I love licking my spoon after scooping the ghee out)! Pure Indian Foods Grassfed Organic Cultured Ghee
