Iced Green Tea Mojito

I had promised myself in 2012 to get Green Tea into my daily regiment due to it's amazing health and healing properties, which go all the way to the level of cancer prevention.

For example, I make a big batch of green tea, let it cool, and put it in a half gallon glass container, and use it as part of the liquid mixture in my daily smoothies. Adding papaya chunks to that smoothie allow me to reap the cancer fighting benefits of Green Tea combined with Papaya.

Also, after writing my article last summer called "The Cool School: Summer Drink Recipes", I also wanted to create a fun summer Green Tea Drink. Here is a recipe for Iced Green Tea Mojito.

Iced Green Tea Mojito

1 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice

4 large organic spearmint leaves, plus more for garnish

4 organic baby arugula leaves

1/2 cup organic brewed green tea, chilled

optional 1 oz white rum

Sweetener such as quality wild raw honey (my current fav is Manuka Honey) because of its pour-ability and deep rich taste, get list of fake honey here

I also like using on occasion
Ultimate Sweetener Birch Tree Xylitol

I'm not a big fan of most sweeteners, read my list of sweeteners to avoid here

Muddle the lime juice, mint, arugula, and sweetener together in a tall Collins glass until the leaves bruise lightly and the flavors release. Add ice until glass is about 3/4 full and then pour in rum and green tea. Stir well and garnish with mint and lime.

…..as a quick note, it was intentional for me to put a drink on my blog with alcohol to illustrate my health philosophy. I drink a few beers a years (normally less than 10), and even less alcohol, but when you have a healthy eating regiment, I don't think too hard about a couple drinks like this in the summer, if I choose to add the rum. It's very liberating when you get to that level,.
