Strawberry Iced Tea Recipe

Strawberry iced tea in a glass cup topped with mint and strawberries.

Strawberry season is in full swing here in the Pacific North West and I am delighted to use the sweet juicy strawberries in every possible way. I make iced tea for myself pretty much daily, but adding strawberries is kind of new to me. This Strawberry Iced tea tastes a little bit like strawberry lemonade and a little bit like tea. Perfect combination, if you ask me!

Adding strawberries is a great way to add natural sweetness to your tea, but sometimes it’s still not enough to get it to that perfect amount of sweetness. By using SPLENDA ZERO™ Liquid Sweetener you can add just enough, without adding sugar or calories and since it’s liquid, it takes not time to dissolve. By the way, did you know that the yellow packets often seen in the restaurants are not always  SPLENDA® Brand, so make sure to ask for it by name.
