Trying to be healthy....what to drink?

Herbal teas

3 blueberry tea bags

2 mint tea bags

Place the tea bags in either pan or I choose to do
it in the microwave glass measuring cup.

Add filtered water...about 4 cups.

Heat in microwave for 5 minutes.  Then I walk away after taking a picture....fold laundry...just kinda forget about it so it can.....STEEP...yep that is the word.

Once it has steeped set the bags aside.

Add 1 tsp of stevia.  It is Stevita brand.  1 tsp is = 1 cup of sugar

I love the stuff....totally natural...

Stir it in...dissolves rather well in warm liquids.  The powdered stevia also works well in baked goods.The Stevita brand of stevia makes it in a liquid form as well.  Some forms of liquid stevia is very bitter....their brand is not.  Theirs is what I recommend adding to cold beverages.


Fill a gallon pitcher 3/4 full of ice.
Pour the sweetened tea concentrate over the ice
Add three cups of water.

The guys like it.  It is a refreshing treat!

(I had been cooking all day...messy counters.  A real cooks reality)
