Dried Strawberry and Apple Tea


Dried Strawberry and Apple Tea

With the arrival of autumn and winter, colds and flu's become more common. Keeping the immune system healthy is important, and having an herbal tisane that is both delicious and helpful in boosting our body's ability to fight infection is important. Here's a simple recipe that is high in Vitamin C and other antioxidants.

1 teaspoon strawberry, chopped and dried
1 teaspoon apple, chopped and dried
1 cup boiling water

Combine the strawberry and apple and place in a warmed ceramic teapot or mug. Add boiling water and allow to sit for 10 minutes, until well steeped. Add a little of the sweet herb, stevia, for added sweetness. Sip and enjoy. You can strain out the fruit pieces first if you desire, but hint, they are delicious eaten with your stirring spoon!

Enjoy a healthy and happy day!
