Pineapple Mint Green Tea Cooler

an original Kitchen Prep recipe! {but inspired by a recipe found in Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet cookbook.}
Author: The Kitchen Prep


  • 4 cups hot water {not boiling this will make green tea release tanins that make it bitter}
  • 3 green tea bags I used Bigelow All Natural Organic Decaffienated Green Tea
  • ½ cup all natural pineapple juice such as Ceres sold at Whole Foods
  • 2 limes {1 juiced 1 sliced into wheels}
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves
  • ½ cup all natural pineapple juice
  • Sugar or your choice of natural sweetener {I used approx ⅛ cup natural cane sugar}


  • Steep tea bags in hot water, about 5-7 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pitcher, add mint leaves, sugar, 1-2 slices of lime, and the juice of 1 lime. Using a wooden spoon muddle together to release the mint flavor from the mint leaves, much like you would when making a mojito. This step isn't mandatory, but it will make a mintier tea than just throwing the leaves in and calling it a day.
  • Add pineapple juice and tea into pitcher. Cool in refrigerator.
  • Serve in tall glasses with ice. Rim glasses with sugar if desired and garnish with lime wheel.
