I have been grabbing the yummy Arnold Palmer iced teas lately when out running errands. They're so refreshing! But swimsuit season is right around the corner, and I can't be wasting calories on sugary drinks. I decided to try a homemade, low-calorie version, and it's just as good!
Add a cup of boiling water and two green tea bags to a quart mason jar. Let steep for 30 minutes, then add 10 drops of liquid stevia (or two packets of granulated), the juice of one lemon, and fill to the rim with water. Today I added a couple of ice cubes with mint leaves frozen in them.
Sip this all afternoon, and you will not only be 32 ounces closer to your water intake for the day, you'll have received some of the wonderful health benefits of green tea and vitamin C from the lemon.
