I have a delish and very cool Kool-Aid recipe for you! It is brilliant crimson red, made with hibiscus flowers and tastes no different than store-bought Kool-Aid.
Plus one of the ingredients has the benefit of lowering blood pressure as effectively as some standard hypertension drugs can. (I will tell you about that in a minute!)
With the downside of dyes and aspartame in most of the Kool-Aid drinks, many people are going with this safer, more natural Kool-Aid recipe.
Kool-Aid Recipe Made Like Tea Using 3 Herbs:
1. Stevia leaf is known for its amazing sweetness and smoothness – no sugar spike or empty calories. I am talking about the herb stevia, not the white powedered, processed stuff.
2. Peppermint leaf is so cooling on a hot summer’s day and pulls the blend together with zing ~
Besides tasting terrific, a great thing about my alternative Kool-Aid recipe is that it is sugar-free and dye-free. It has a lot of extra healthy benefits since it’s loaded with Vitamin C and bioflavonoids.
3. Hibiscus flower gives off its distinctly bright red color and has a sweet tart taste that really quenches your thirst.
And as you will see below, it has mild hypotensive properties without the side effects of standard B/P meds.
Your family will all love the very same Kool-Aid taste and you’ll know it’s not causing them a possible reaction to food dyes linked to ADD, ADHD, poor behavior, or other side-effects.
Three Ingredient Kool-Aid Recipe:
Pour 2 cups of boiling water over:
Let the brew steep for 15 to 20 minutes then strain into a 1/2 gallon pitcher. Fill the rest of the way with cold water. Stir and enjoy cold!

A No-Side-Effect Way to Lower Blood Pressure
Hibiscus is widely consumed around the world as a ruby-red, naturally lemony beverage. It’s the main ingredient in Red Zinger tea. Since hibiscus plants can be grown in much of the United States, you can actually grow your own blood pressure medicine.
Studies done by the NIH show that hibiscus tea can lower blood pressure as effectively as some standard hypertension drugs can.
Hibiscus is safe and, unlike most blood pressure drugs, rarely causes side effects. (source)
To lower blood pressure, health professionals with the University of Michigan Health System recommend infusing 1 cup of water with 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried hibiscus flowers. You can consume up to three cups of hibiscus tea daily.
