This is a cheaper and easier way to make fruit tea. I think it is just as tasty!! For a 2 quart container:


  • 3 small tea bags
  • Ad
  • 1 quart of pineapple/orange/banana juice blend (I use store brand to save money)
  • 1 packet (yields 2 quarts) of sugar free dry lemonade mix (3 packets for $1 at Dollar Tree)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar


Add 3 tea bags to about 3 cups of boiling water. Steep tea for about 10-15 minutes.

Discard the tea bags. Pour the tea into a 2 quart pitcher. Add 1/2 cup sugar. Add 1 packet of sugar free dry lemonade mix Add your juice to finish filling the pitcher. Stir well.

Let chill and serve over ice. Yummy and frugal!

You can adjust the amounts to your liking and choose a different flavor of juice blend. This, to me, is just as good and a lot easier.
