Recipe: Minty-lime ice tea

Dietitian's tip: To prepare brewed tea, heat water to a simmer, remove from heat and add the tea. Generally, steep 1 teaspoon of tea per 1 cup of water. For this recipe, you can use brewed tea that has been cooled or instant tea.

Serves: 1


1 cup freshly brewed unsweetened tea, cooled
2 tablespoons lime juice concentrate
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, plus 1 sprig for garnish
5 to 6 ice cubes
Sugar substitute, to taste


In a blender, combine the ice tea, lime juice, mint leaves and ice cubes. Blend until smooth and frothy. Add sugar substitute for desired sweetness.

Pour into a tall chilled glass and garnish with a mint sprig.
