There’s nothing better in the summer than hanging out poolside with a big cup of Milo’s Iced Tea. Why not step it up a notch by making this delicious Raspberry Orange Iced Tea Recipe!
Today is the last day of school and to me, that officially marks the beginning of summer! It’s my favorite season and my family and I plan to spend lots of time poolside. Of course, if we’re poolside we’ll need something refreshing to drink so we always have plenty of Milo’s Tea on hand.
Fresh brewed, made with natural ingredients and containing no preservatives or added acids, Milo’s Tea is a favorite in my house. My hubby loves the regular Milo’s Tea sweetened with pure cane sugar but my favorite is the No Calorie Milo’s Tea. If you prefer unsweetened tea, Milo’s has that covered too.
Milo’s Tea Company has been a family owned company for three generations now. Did you know that Milo’s actually started as a restaurant in 1946? The founders, Milo and Bea Carlton had a philosophy that included three simple rules:
- Use high quality, fresh ingredients
- Listen to your customers
- Never sacrifice taste
It wasn’t until 1989 that Milo’s began selling their Famous Sweet Tea to local grocery stores and now it can be found in thousands of stores nationwide. The company is still guided by Milo and Bea’s vision and only use natural ingredients, fresh brew all their teas and never add colors, acid, additives or preservatives. The simple ingredient list on their juices and teas says it all and you can really taste the difference!
We love drinking Milo’s Tea by the pool but if I wanted to make my Raspberry Orange Iced Tea recipe, I had to hurry…it was going fast!
Raspberry Orange Iced Tea Recipe
Combine the raspberries and water in a saucepan. Simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes until it liquefies into a puree. You’ll know it’s ready when it reaches a syrupy consistency.
Strain puree through a sieve to remove the raspberry seeds.
Pour 8 ounces of Milo’s Tea into a glass. I used the no calorie version but you can make this iced tea recipe with any of their varieties.
Add orange juice…
and a tablespoon of raspberry puree.
Garnish with orange slices, raspberries and mint leaves.
Milo’s Tea is is pretty awesome on it’s own but just wait until you taste it with raspberries and oranges!
I may even try switching it up next time with different types of fruit. Blackberries or strawberries would probably be pretty tasty too.
