Since moving to the South and spending so much time working in the garden, some afternoons nothing hits the spot like a glass of sweet tea. I used to be an unsweetened girl but now, well hard work and sweet tea just go together. But, I still want to stay on track with my health goals so I have discovered the secret to perfect sweet tea without the insulin spike and inflammation sugar can cause. Allulose. It is found found naturally in fruits like figs and raisins. The mix I use also has erythritol (sugar alcohol) stevia and monk fruit extracts that are plant based sweeteners. So you don’t get that after taste that you get with certain natural sweeteners. Just a refreshing glass of ice tea perfect for a summer day. Enjoy.
8 cups of water
Pitcher of ice
5 black tea bags
2 Tbs Allulose Baking Blend (I used Whole Earth)
Fresh lemon (optional)
Steep tea bags in 8 cups of hot water.
Fill pitcher with ice. Sprinkle 2 Tbs sweetner mix over ice.
Take tea bags out of water after desired strength (about 5 min) and pour tea over the ice.
Fill glasses with ice, pour tea and serve with fresh lemon. Fresh mint and other herbs in your garden would also be delicious. Enjoy
