Ingredients for blackberry and sage water
- Blackberries – you can use either fresh blackberries or frozen berries. Whatever you have to hand.

How to make blackberry sage water
This blackberry sage water is a two-part recipe and then it’s just a case of letting time do the work for you and straining the results. What could be easier really.
You start by making a sage tea and setting this aside to cool. While this is happening blitz the blackberries and chilli in food processor then press through a nylon sieve.
Strain the sage tea and add to the berry puree in a jug and top with 3 cups of water. Leave in fridge overnight then strain into another jug or bottle for a gorgeously clear colourful and tasty drink that is healthy too.
