Looking for something refreshing, calorie free and full of antioxidants? Iced tea is the drink for you! It contains 115mg of flavonoids per 8 fl oz serving. That's more than cranberry juice, orange juice, and coffee combined. And it' so easy to make.
Get a 2 quart pitcher and steep 4 tea bags (I prefer good old Lipton) in 4 cups of boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
Remove tea bags and mix in 2 heaping tablespoons of (calorie and artificial free) Truvia sweetener
Next add 4 cups of cold water
Refrigerate or serve over ice
(Squeeze fresh lemons for a powerful liver cleanser as well)
Don't be tempted to buy bottled tea for their convenience. Most of these beverages contain very few of freshly brewed tea's benefits and are loaded with sugar and calories. Even the diet ones don't contain the same antioxidant benefits and usually have artificial sweeteners.
