Lemon Balm Wild Blueberry Iced Tea

This recipe combines two of my favorite healing foods–lemon bam and wild blueberries. Both of these foods offer a powerhouse of healing benefits that are helpful for everyone. They also taste delicious when paired together in this recipe! Make plenty of this recipe and store it in the fridge as you’ll likely find yourself gong back for more and more!

Lemon balm: Kills viruses, bacteria, and other pathogenic microorganisms inside the liver. Makes a better environment in the intestinal tract, which supports the delivery of cleaner nutrients from the gut to the liver. Lemon balm calms the nerves of the liver, causing it to be less spasmodic, agitated, and angry, while also calming the nerves inside of the intestinal lining, which lowers toxic heat inside the liver. It also supports the adrenals, which makes the liver less toxic.

Wild blueberries: Contain dozens of undiscovered antioxidants, including anthocyanin varieties. There’s not just one pigment inside a wild blueberry; there are dozens of pigments not yet researched or studied. The wild blueberry is to the liver as mother’s milk is to a baby. Not only do wild blueberries have the ability to grab on to plenty of troublemakers, they also hold on to them as they leave the liver, in a way that most other healing foods cannot. The pigments in wild blueberries have the ability to saturate deep into liver cells and cross cell walls and membranes inside the liver, spreading their blue everywhere. Wild blueberries enhance the intestinal tract, feeding good bacteria there, which benefits the liver greatly.

Lemon Balm Wild Blueberry Iced Tea 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 lemon balm tea bags
  • 4 cups of water
  • Ice, to serve
  • Handful of fresh lemon balm, for garnish

Directions:

Place the wild blueberries, maple syrup and lemon juice in a medium-sized saucepan. Cook over low heat until the wild blueberries are mushy, about 5 minutes.

Add the water and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat off, add the tea bags and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Pour everything through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher or bowl, using the back of a spoon to squeeze out juice from the blueberries and tea bags. Chill the tea for about an hour in the fridge, then serve over ice with fresh lemon balm for garnish.

Serves 4-6
