While I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting back to my roots of all the water during this Whole30, I’ve missed fun drinks.
Even though it appears that I’m a bit boozy IRL based on the cocktails I share here, I can assure you I’m not.
In fact, dropping alcohol for the Whole30 was actually the easiest thing to kick. (Heck, I was able to do that for nearly a year during pregnancy and the first few months of Lady A’s life, and it wasn’t a thing then. Not one now, either.)
But sometimes, a girl wants a refreshing drink that isn’t a big glass ‘o water.
Unsurprisingly, I’m obsessed with colorful, refreshing drinks. Doesn’t matter if they’re boozy or not.
So today, I made us a Whole30-compliant iced tea that can be out go-to for summertime picnics, barbecues and patriotic festivities.
Specifically those patriotic festivities. Because whether or not you’re on the Whole30, we all deserve to have a delicious summer sipper in hand this summer.
I mean… just LOOK at that color!
And looking at this iced tea, you’d never know it’s sugar-free.
Tasting it, you wouldn’t, either.
Though if you like your tea real sweet, you might notice a difference since the sweetness here is just from these blackberries.
This Blackberry Ginger Lemon Whole30 Tea packs all kinds of flavor, thanks to fresh blackberries and lemon slices, and it goes down so easily.
And I don’t know about y’all, but I plan to have a pitcher of this goodness in my fridge all summer long.

- 8 cups water
- 6 oz. blackberries
- 1/2 large lemon cut into wedges
- 2 Whole30-compliant lemon ginger tea bags
In a heavy bottomed saucepan, heat the water over high heat.
When the water comes to a boil, remove from the heat, and add the blackberries, lemon and the tea bags.
Muddle the blackberries.
Let the ingredients steep for an hour.
Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the tea into a pitcher.
Refrigerate, and serve cool.
Please note that the total time does not include the steeping time.
Be sure to check your tea bags and their ingredients to ensure you are using a Whole30-compliant one. We couldn't drink my first batch of this because my lemon ginger tea had soy in it. :/
