Tea and Fruit Slush

I wanted blueberry-strawberry slushies today but there were no blueberries in site as I peered into the fridge. Well, on went the thinking cap....."Hmm, I have some blueberry Tea Bags by Celestial. " So here's what we did and it was very good and refreshing!

3 cups of boiling hot water
2 blueberry teabags (use any flavor you want!)
(Steep tea for 8 to 10 minutes in hot water.)

1 16oz bag of frozen strawberries
1 cup of orange juice
3/4 cup sugar (more or less to taste, this amount is not super sweet)
4 cups of ice water, mostly water if berries are froze hard

Blend and serve!
A great way to get fruit into your child's diet!

(Makes approx 8 drinks-- leftovers can be frozen and used as "ice" with seltzer water or other drink; or eaten like a popsicle!)
