Want an alternative to soda? Need something light after you had a little too much “holiday cheer”? Try a deliciously light Mint Green Tea Refresher! They were developed in partnership with SPLENDA® Sweeteners for SocialStars and they are SO fresh and fizzy!! #SplendaSweeties #SweetSwaps
I don’t know about you, but there are definitely times that I put a little too much “happy” in my holidays. You know …
a little too much of that delicious sherbet punch (why can’t I ever say no to punch?!) …
one too many cookies from the cookie platter (just.one.more.) …
that extra plate of appetizers that didn’t have to happen (but it was a dip!)
The day after? My will power and I are not on speaking terms. So, for those days when ‘light’ is the way to go, a fresh and fizzy Mint Green Tea Refresher definitely fits the bill!
Mint Green Tea Refresher
This refresher starts with mint green tea concentrate – that you can make at home in minutes!
You can easily make green tea concentrate by doubling up the number of tea bags you would normally steep for tea. So for one cup of tea, use 2 tea bags instead of one. If you want to make a larger batch like I did, steep 8 mint green tea bags in 4 cups of boiling water. Allow the concentrate to cool and store in the fridge for 2-3 days.
When you are ready to mix up a Mint Green Tea Refresher, fill your glass (or pitcher) with ice.
Then, fill the glass halfway with the mint green tea concentrate.
Next, fill the rest of the glass with club soda or sparkling water. Hello fizz!!
To keep this fizzy sipper light, add SPLENDA®No Calorie Sweetener to taste. Each glass of our Mint Green Tea Refresher has ZERO calories! It is a tasty alternative to soda and perfect for a light start to 2016!
SPLENDA® Sweeteners offer the sweetness of sugar, without all the calories and can be used in baking, cooking, and beverage mixing!
A pitcher of this Mint Green Tea Refresher would be pretty perfect for a spa day with the girls, served alongside tea sandwiches or served at a baby shower for the momma-to-be! The glasses look so pretty with a sprig of fresh mint, too!
