When I was shopping at Walmart last week, I found 3 different flavors of Lipton Tea & Honey: Blackberry Pomegranate, Mango Pineapple and Lemon. Each pitcher packet has enough powder for making 1 liter of iced tea. Over the last week, we had the opportunity to try it several different times. First, we drank some Mango Pineapple with our chicken and rice dinner, as you can see in the picture at the top of the post. Then, when some friends came over for the evening, we made the Blackberry Pomegranate flavor. The Lipton Tea & Honey iced tea mix was perfect because our friends came over last minute and I just happened to have this on hand to serve with a snack. It was super quick and easy to make.
My friend was SO impressed by the Lipton Tea & Honey iced tea mixes because they are made with real ingredients. There are only 5 calories per serving. It is sweetened with honey and contains no aspartame! All of the kids loved the iced tea as well and we used 4 of the pitcher packets in one evening!
When I purchased the Lipton Tea & Honey, I also purchased the ingredients for a family meal. I wanted to make something that everyone liked but I wanted it to be somewhat healthy. Everyone loves pizza so instead of buying a frozen pizza, I made semi-homemade pizzas and served it with a garden salad.
We had one pepperoni pizza and one chicken Alfredo pizza.
I made the Mango Pomegranate Lipton Tea & Honey to go with our pizza dinner. We had three extra kids over for the pizza dinner and they all wanted more than one glass of the iced tea! Suffice it to say, this iced tea is a big hit at our house!
What is your favorite flavor of iced tea?
