Iced Tea Suitable for Diabetics

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Gwanny Hill

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".

A delightful flavor and a real treat. I used all Splenda instead of a mix of Splenda and sugar and a pink lemonade mix is what I had on hand. I very much enjoy this and I think I'll be making it often in the warmer months. Thank you Gwanny.
