I don't like my kids to feel deprived of fun treats so when other kids are drinking pop and such I often bring koolaid! Yes - technically there is sugar in kool aid ingredients but its negligible and this is a treat - so its a very small cheat.
1 Kool Aid pkg any flavour
1/3 cup honey or agave
8 mini scoops of stevia (equivalent to 16 tsp sugar)
Mix with a little bit of hot water to get the honey to dissolve.
Add cold water and fill up a to the 2L mark.
As you get more accustomed to the stevia flavour (and don't notice it anymore) you could probably increase the stevia and decrease the honey even more! If you notice the stevia taste in this recipe - try using 1/2 cup honey and 4-6 scoops of stevia. Stevia is an acquired taste!
This is the real deal! Real lemons, honey, stevia and water!
1 lemon (warm in microwave 30 sec), juiced into a glass
1/2-1 Tbsp honey
1 mini scoop stevia
Stir it all together and add cold water to fill to 2 cups.
Quick and easy - great for a hot day treat!
2 1/2 cups fruit (strawberries, peaches....)
1 1/2 cups lemon juice (from the bottle or fresh)
1/2 cup honey
6 mini scoops stevia (equivalent to 12 tsp sugar)
5 cups cold water
Pure the fruit well - add lemon juice and sweetener and puree again .
Stir in the cold water - adjust to taste with more water if necessary.
REAL ICED TEA
yep- made with TEA!
1/4 tsp baking soda (do not leave this out!!!)
12 tea bags (any kind)
4 cups boiling water
12 cups cold water
1 1/2 cups sugar (or substitute 1 cup honey + stevia to taste)
Sprinkle the baking soda into a 1 gallon container.
Add tea bags.
Pour boiling water on top. steep 15 min.
Remove bags, add sweetener and stir well.
Add Cold water.
