Lemongrass Mint Iced Tea, aka hubby’s special tea, is on the menu today. Why hubby’s special tea? He is from India and this is quite a common tea. Theirs is always hot, but I love it cold. When I was pregnant with our now 9-year-old, I was suddenly turned off of water. That was quite a surprise to someone who usually loves water. I had a hard time stomaching it in the morning. My husband made me some decaf tea with mint and lemongrass. During the hot summer months in Florida and being 6 months pregnant, hot tea was not high on my list. So he popped it in the refrigerator for me. I could have a glass of Lemongrass Mint Iced Tea, and I felt my stomach soothed. What a relief. After a glass of the tea, I could drink water without that queasy feeling.
When I was thinking of a beverage to highlight SPLENDA® Sweeteners new product, SPLENDA Zero™ Liquid Sweetener, Lemongrass Mint Iced Tea automatically came to mind. During the Winter I found drinking a cup of hot tea with lemon and ginger took care of my afternoon munchies. At 3pm, my brain starts screaming for a snack. It becomes so loud, I have a hard time working or ignoring it. For some reason, the tea with lemon and ginger kicked that cravings behind. Now that Spring has sprung, I don’t want anything hot. Those afternoon cravings were back to kicking my diet to the curb. Until my new hero, Lemongrass Mint Iced Tea put on its superhero cape and kicked the munchies to the ground. One pretty glass filled with this delicious concoction gets me through the afternoon without munching on everything in sight.
I like to add SPLENDA Zero™ Liquid Sweetener to each individual glass. My husband likes drinks much sweeter than I do. I put one little splash in for the perfect mix of sweetness. He likes two. You can control the sweetness in your iced tea. This morning he heated up the tea so he could take Lemongrass Mint Hot Tea with him to work. How is that for versatility? Plus SPLENDA Zero™ Liquid Sweetener has no carbs, no sugar, and low calories. SPLENDA® Sweetener has so many different ways to help you reduce sugar on Sweet Swaps. Check them out. Be sure to come back next month for another beverage, Strawberry Lemonade.
