Hello my lovelies,
I’m trying to cut sugar free fizzy drinks from my diet and let me tell you it’s really difficult! Especially since I’ve got my coffee consumption to just one a day. I mean, I like water but it’s getting really boring and I’ve been craving something a little tastier to drink while at work.
Enter, my recipe for Sugar free spiced apple ice tea!
It’s low carb, sugar free and deliciously refreshing! What more could you ask for in a Summer drink?
The recipe is basically the same as my ultimate southern sweet ice tea just sugar free.
This recipe will make approximately 1 litre of base tea. To make up a jug of iced tea, you will need to add 750ml of icy cold water to 250ml of the cold base tea. If the base has just been made and is still warm but you’d like to make up a batch of iced tea for later, add 750ml of cold water to 250ml of the warm base sweet tea and refrigerate for about 4 hours. Overnight is better, I’m told.
To make the tea base you will need:
- 1 litre cold water (more for topping up)
- 6 Spiced apple teabags
- 60ml lemon juice
- 100g of Truvia
Place 1 litre of water on to boil. Once it’s boiling, turn off the heat and dump in your tea bags and let them steep for about 15 minutes. Add the lemon juice.
Remove the tea bags and discard. Pour in the Truvia and stir to completely dissolve.
Pour into a bottle and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before placing in the fridge. Don’t ever put hot stuff straight into your fridge.
To make up a batch of ice tea just add 250ml of the base tea with 1 litre of water and stir well.
I’ve filled my large water bottle and it’s in the fridge ready and waiting to go to work with me.
