Yes, I may be late to the whole Starbucks medicine ball (a.k.a. Honey Citrus Mint Tea) trend. I had my very first medicine ball this week and it was also my last. After waking up and not feeling my best I decided to try a Starbucks medicine ball at the suggestion of a friend. It was delicious!
The fruity peppermint and citrus flavors all mixed together were great and they made me feel better. But after researching I saw that the popular Starbucks drink has 30 grams of sugar. If you add the suggested 4 pumps of peppermint syrup to a grande size, at 5 grams of sugar per pump, that’s a whopping 50 grams of sugar!!

I decided to do my own research and try to make it myself. Not only would it cost less but it would have less sugar as well. I headed to Target and found all of the ingredients that I needed. It was so easy to make, has less sugar and cost less than the Starbucks version. It cost me less than $1 to make a cup compared to over $3.00 for the Starbucks grande version.
