calorie-free Dessert in a Glass with Tea!

Craving sweets or fats?  Teas that have a fruity, chocolate, mint or spicy taste can be a great alternative.  One of the reasons we sometimes crave sugar and fat is because it’s a response to stress.  Since many of these teas also have naturally stress-relieving qualities, they can counteract the reason you’re craving a treat in the first place, while giving your taste buds something satisfying to enjoy.

Instead of sugar or sugar substitutes, add a calorie-free sweet taste to your tea with our Sweet Herb – add a pinch to any tea as it steeps. Strain after 5 min.  Used for more than 1500 years in South America, this is the original style unprocessed dried green stevia leaf.  It contains zero calories but can be used to add a sweet taste to tea & other beverages including hot cocoa & coffee.  Adjust how much you add to your beverage based on your preference, but a little goes a long way so start off with a small pinch.

RECIPE

Brew any of the teas below with a pinch of Sweet Herb.  This on its own can be very delicious, but if you’re also hankering for something richer, creamier and more indulgent, to every cup of tea made with a pinch of Sweet Herb, add a splash of unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, rice, oat, soy or any nut milks can be wonderful) – and now you’ve got a heavenly creamy drink!  The non-dairy milk will add a few calories, but very little if you’re using an unsweetened type.
