Strawberry Green Tea Recipe

After having a baby last month things have been a whirlwind around here. We’ve had company galore, all gathering to meet our new arrival, laundry, sleepless nights, 3 other kiddos to take care of and the to do list never ends! My little guy, Brady, is such a blessing and a welcomed new addition to the family. I’m getting used to a new routine and starting to figure out how to juggle it all. While I was recovering from my c-section there were a few things that people brought me that were so helpful as well as a few things that I wish I had during my recovery. How do you spoil a new mom? That’s what this post is all about! Plus I’m giving you my favorite Iced Strawberry Green Tea recipe that every new mom deserves to enjoy.

How To Spoil A New Mom - Must Have Mom #Shop

When visiting a new mom and meeting that precious little baby what should you bring to spoil the new mom? It can be a tough question, but having just gone through it I can tell you exactly what I wanted.

  • After having a c-section I wasn’t able to get into jeans because they would rub on my incision so yoga pants paired with comfy tops were a must. Every new mom can benefit from a fresh, new set of comfy clothes that she can wear and feel great even if she didn’t get a shower that day. The baby always gets new clothes, don’t forget mama!
  • Chocolate! It’s an instant mood booster and after all the hard work of delivering that baby every new mom deserves some chocolate! Put it in cute little jars and adorn it with a ribbon for a special touch. (*secret tip* you can buy my personal favorite cadbury eggs year round on Amazon!)
  • Foot cream is the perfect way to spoil every new mom with an at home pedicure. Soak those tired feet in a wash basin with some epsom salts and follow it up with a nice foot massage using the foot creme. An at home spa treatment is just what the doctor ordered!
  • You’ll need some Bigelow Green Tea with lemon for relaxing at night with a hot cup of tea and you’ll also need it for my divine Strawberry Green Tea recipe that is perfect for sipping throughout the day.

Bigelow Green Tea at Target #Shop

I found my Bigelow Green Tea with Lemon at Target in the tea aisle. It’s with a myriad of other teas and flavors but it’s the best for this recipe! Why should new mamas take advantage of sipping green tea? There are actually many health benefits to drinking green tea:

  1. It is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. This includes improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and many other incredible benefits.
  2. Green Tea Can Kill Bacteria, Which Improves Dental Health and Lowers Your Risk of Infection.
  3. Some studies show that green tea leads to increased weight loss. It is particularly effective at reducing the dangerous abdominal fat.
  4. Green tea was used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to control bleeding and heal wounds, aid digestion, improve heart and mental health and regulate body temperature.4 Recent studies have shown green tea can potentially have positive effects on everything from weight loss to liver disorders to type 2 diabetes.
  5. Green tea is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks.

Before going to visit a new mom, brew up some green tea and make her some Strawberry Green Tea! First you need to boil 5 cups of water and pour it over 5 Bigelow Green Tea with Lemon tea bags and let it brew for 5 minutes.

Mix it with your strawberry syrup (see recipe below) and chill. Serve chilled over ice. It’s sooooo good!

Iced Strawberry Green Tea - Must Have Mom

Since new moms are always on the go, taking care of baby’s every need, pick up a covered, insulated straw cup that she can enjoy her strawberry green tea in. I LOVE my insulated straw cup because I can carry it with me through the house and on the go and always stay hydrated which is particularly important for breastfeeding moms.

  1. this sounds wonderful!! and i don’t have a new baby, but i agree with what you suggest. it’s so hard to stay hydrated when you have a newborn- i remember i would sit down and get to nursing and remember that big drink of water i’d left in the kitchen…

  2. Ahh…this is sure to be a hit with new moms and old ones, too. I love the idea of strawberry in the green tea. Perfect recipe for spring!

  3. Oh strawberry green tea sounds amazing!! I am a huge green tea fan, and the addition of the strawberry’s will just make me love this more.

  4. What an awesome recipe! I am reading this because I am traveling on Saturday to see my sis who is a new mom. I LOVE your ideas!!! (And so will she). The tea recipe will be great in her hot weather in Arizona.

  5. I can actually see my boys, the super picky eaters of mine, enjoying this strawberry green tea drink! And even though I am not a new mom I was some pampering too!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. This sounds so delicious! I was actually looking for some green tea in my cabinet today and realized that I ran out! This recipe will be perfect for spring and summer!

  7. My son is 20 months, but I wouldn’t mind being spoiled with your kit. The tea sounds wonderful. Congratulations on your new addition. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. ill have to make some of this for my 2 daughter in laws,who both just had a new baby last month

  9. Green tea is my favorite! Love how this uses fresh strawberries. I also like lemongrass green tea, I usually buy the tea bags at tim hortons. or online from vitacost cause I cant find that particular flavor in stores. This is a great cool and refreshing summer drink.

  10. If you make the tea separate and you do the strawberries separate, and you want to make this tea by the glass how much of the strawberries would you use for the glass? Thank you.

    1. Hello! It would depend on the size of glass. I would just do equal shares of tea and strawberries. For example if you have 8 shares of tea then divvy up the strawberries into 1/8 shares as well. I hope that helps! You can also adjust to your taste. Some like it more sweet, some less. This would be a good way to customize it to each guest’s taste ๐Ÿ™‚
