Sweet Tea Lemonade
 
Author: 
Recipe type: Beverages
Ingredients
Sweet Tea:
  • 4 cups water, divided
  • 3 tea bags of black tea (I used Irish Breakfast)
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ cup Swerve, Confectioners
Lemonade:
  • ¾ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ⅔ cup Swerve, Confectioners
  • 3 ¼ cups water
Instructions
  1. For the sweet tea, bring two cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add tea bags and baking soda. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes, then remove tea bags. Stir in Swerve and remaining water until well combined.
  2. For the lemonade, combine lemon juice, Swerve, and water in a container. Stir to mix well. To serve, fill glasses with ice and add equal parts tea and lemonade. Alternatively, you can combine them together in one large pitcher and pour into glasses to serve. Be sure to use plenty of ice and always stir before serving as the sweetener tends to settle out when it sits.

      Hi Sandy!

      Swerve is a great tasting, natural sweetener that measures cup-for-cup just like sugar! Made from a unique combination of ingredients derived from fruits and vegetables, Swerve contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives or flavors. It also doesn’t effect your blood sugar!

      Hi Kathi,

      The baking soda is said to help decrease the bitterness of the tannins. Hope this answers your question!

      Hi there Peg!

      The overall carb count is adding the Swerve, however, if you look at our net carbs, you will see the non-impact amount, which is 2g! Hope that helps!
