Issue #68


Strawberry season is approaching fast and I must shamefully admit, I'm not prepared!
This year, everything is different, because we have a new baby at home, who leaves little time for anything else :-)

Just yesterday I saw the first fresh batches of strawberries at the market, which reminded me to get out this newsletter to you.

I found a recipe that is really fast to prepare, a refreshing drink that'll bring you into spring time mood.

Strawberry Iced Green Tea

Wow! Talk about healthy, refreshing and yummy at the same time! And, easy and fast to prepare as well. What else could you wish for in a strawberry recipe?


  • 4 bags green tea with peppermint flavor
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups (500 ml) orange juice
  • ice cubes or crushed ice
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup (125g) fresh strawberries
  • peppermint leaves


Make 2 cups (500ml) of green tea. For preparing the tea I use the Twinings Green & Mint Tea bags or t discs. But you can use any other brand as well.

Add sugar to your liking while still hot. Add orange juice and put into fridge for at least one hour.

Halve strawberries, cut lemon into slices (buy organic lemons if you want to use with zest).

Put strawberries, lemons and ice cubes into 4 long drink glasses. Add cold tea and decorate with peppermint leaves.


Makes 4 glasses.

      Kitchen tips for fruit pies

      * Save the drained juice from frozen or canned fruit and use fruit juice instead of water in your recipe. This will give your pie even more flavor.

      * Don't cut strawberries (or other fruit) too thin when you are using fresh berries. Larger chunks will hold together and have more flavor.
