Instead of Koolaid...

I'm not a fan of food that comes in powdered form. With the exception of milled products, or products that would be useless if not ground up. Koolaid freaks me out. I'm not saying this is completely healthy, but subbing honey or agave or a less cavity inducing natural sweetener would make it more so. And if I had lemon slices, this would be perfect!

2 cups frozen blueberries (or fruit of your choice)
1 cup cane sugar
Roughly 3 liters of water
Put fruit and sugar in a sauce pan with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
Strain it through a sieve or a coffee filter to get as much as you can out of the fruit.
Pour into a pitcher and add the rest of the water, diluting to your preference. Add in tea, lemon, even mint, chill and serve.
