Healthy and delicious picnic snack ideas

Rooibos and berry mocktail

Serves 6 (2 litres)

Ready in 2 hours 30 minutes**

This tea is very refreshing and a healthier alternative to fizzy, sugary cold drinks. Pack this for a picnic on a hot summer’s day.


8 Rooibos tea bags or flavoured Rooibos of your choice

1 cinnamon stick

4 whole cloves

6 thin slices ginger

4 cups (1 litre) boiling water

4 cups (1 litre) 100 % grape, apple or berry juice, chilled

lemon juice to taste

ice cubes, mint leaves, fresh fruit (like blueberries or grapes) or lemon slices to serve


  1. Place tea bags, spices and ginger in a large glass jug and pour over boiling water. Stir well and allow to cool for about 2 hours. Remove tea bags, ginger and spices.
  2. Add juice to the tea and season with lemon juice to taste.
  3. Serve cold with ice and mint leaves, fruit and lemon. Thread blueberries or grapes and mint onto cocktail skewers to add to each glass – this will not only look impressive, but taste great too.


  1. When buying fruit juice, remember to read the label and only buy pure or 100 % fruit juice.
  2. Flavoured Rooibos tea will be delicious in this, try a berry or spicy Chai flavoured tea.
