One of my favorite things about tea is that regardless of the pace of my day, it forces me to savor something and relax my breathing. So savor your iced tea...DON'T USE A STRAW! (That's right, I don't care if your dentist disagrees) and for goodness sake...DON'T CHUG IT! :)
Here's a nice fresh summer recipe to enjoy on some toast or other baked item with your iced tea:
Strawberry Tea Butter:
- Combine 10 oz thawed, frozen strawberries with 1 stick of softened butter, 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, and 1 teaspoon grated orange zest.
- Puree until smooth
- Spread on toast, biscuits, scones, or what ever you like
**If you swap the butter with plain yogurt or sour cream, you could have a delectable dip on your hands!**
