Low Calorie Iced Green Tea Lemonade

Lemonade is the perfect summer drink. It is such a refreshing and delicious addition to a cook out or a day at the pool.

There is only one problem. Most premade lemonades (and mixes) are laden with sugar and extra calories. Sure, they’re delicious—but I prefer to eat my calories, not drink them.

In an attempt to make my own lower calorie lemonade, I realized something. Something fantastic. It is actually quite easy to make homemade lemonade—no messy squeezing or juicing involved. And you don’t even have to make a full pitcher—just a glass whenever you’re in the mood.

Only 3 ingredients are necessary—lemon juice, water, and a low calorie sweetener of choice.

Of course, I took it a step further and added green tea to the mix. Green tea is known for it’s health-promoting properties, so I figured it could only make things better.

The Italian volcano lemon juice is my secret ingredient. No fresh lemons necessary—just a pour and you’re good to go! Hint: they have it at Costco in a two-bottle pack! I’m obsessed.

To make the green tea version, you’ll need to have chilled green tea on hand. Simply steep a few tea bags in a pitcher of hot water, pop it the fridge, and it’s ready for drinking!

I also use a little NuNaturals liquid stevia to sweeten it up. I used the unflavored version, but I have seen the lemon version online and I think that would be an amazing addition as well.

10-calorie Lemonade (sweetened with stevia)

  • 1.5 C. cold water
  • 3 T. fresh lemon juice
  • stevia to taste (about 8-10 drops)

Shake (or blend it up), pour over ice, and enjoy!

For the green tea version:

  • 1 C. green tea (brewed and chilled)
  • 1/2 C. cold water
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • stevia to taste (about 8-10 drops)

Shake (or blend it up), pour over ice, and enjoy!

I have been drinking this like mad. It is so good!

Next up? Iced passion fruit lemonade made with Tazo passion tea!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my
own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?

I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly
appreciated. Appreciate it

النمل الأبيض هو إحدى أنواع الحشات التي تعيش ضمن مستعمرات خاصة بها ضخمة تنقسم إلى طوائف كل طائفة لها وظيفة معينة، وتعيش بشكل خفي وسري
وهذه الحشرة الخطيرة كما ذكرنا أنها تعيش بمستعمرات ضخمة
النمل الأبيض يتغذى على مادة السيليولوز لذا فإنّ مخاطر النمل الأبيض تظهر في الصور والأشكال التالية: - تآكل السجاد والموكيت والأبسطه المفروشه على الأرض. - تقوم بأكل الاخشاب فتهاجم أثاث المنزل والأبواب والدواليب وكل ما هو مصنوع من خشب الأشجار. - كما أنها تأكل الأرضيات المصنوعة من الخشب. - تهاجم الورق والكتب وتأكلهُ. - تهاجم المحاصيل الزراعية فتشهد ذبول وجفاف شديدين. - تاكل جذوع الأشجار وأطرافها.
