It’s definitely been a hot summer. We drink a ton of water in our house, but iced tea is a big favorite, too. And because I get bored easily, I like to change up the flavors as much as I can.
As a member of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a Sweet’N Low Sweetener gift pack, which included 10 packets of Sweet’N Low sweetener and other goodies, including a fun cocktail shaker! So, in turn, I made this delicious drink using their product (which we use pretty often in our house) in place of sugar.
We loved this! So refreshing and delicious, and when you’re drinking a lot to stay cool, it’s nice to not have to worry about consuming so many calories.
Ginger Iced Tea

Sweet’N Low, to taste

Slice ginger root very thin and crush. Heat one quart of water and let tea steep with ginger over low heat, at least 10 minutes. Strain out tea and ginger, then add sweetener. Let cool and serve over ice.
