1/1 Photo of Iced Tea Suitable for Diabetics
Gwanny Hill's Note:
I love iced tea with sugar and lemon, but because I am a diabetic I had to limit my intake of this refreshing beverage. By experimenting several times, I came up with this recipe which is "legal" for me. I find it just as tasty and refreshing as the "real stuff".
