Instead of using sugar, artificial sweeteners or flavorings, use dried fruits to flavor and sweeten any hot or cold beverage. With a hot beverages, there is simple technique, called steeping, to extract the flavors from whatever dried fruit or fruit combinations. All that is needed to steep dried fruits are hot water, dried fruit, and a utensil to extract to dried fruit from the hot water when the steeping is finished.
It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3:
- Heat the water.
- Place the dried fruit into the hot water.
- Let the fruit’s natural essence seep into the water, then remove the fruit and enjoy!
To flavor a cold beverage, combine the dried fruit with the desired beverage (water, iced tea, etc) and drink; if necessary occasionally stir the mixture to insure that the flavor is distributed throughout. This type of flavoring method is great for providing drinks for a large crowd because it can be made in large quantities. Another way you can incorporate flavor and keep the beverage extra cold is to make ice cubes with the dried fruit inside of them. Place fruit at the bottom of an ice cube tray cover with water, let them freeze, and add them to whatever drink!
So instead of turning to sugar, sugar substitutes or chemical flavorings, use dried fruit from Tropical Foods & create a winning drink for everyone to enjoy!
