Celebrate Summer with Sweet, Lemony Iced Tea (+ Pure Via Giveaway!)

Oh I love summer!  I also love ice tea.  When I was growing up in Pennsylvania, I was addicted to a certain sweet ice tea.  That sweet memory of sweet, lemony iced tea is with me.  


I never knew that June is National Iced Tea Month!  Did you?  To celebrate, I've been sipping away at a Sweet Lemony Iced Tea.  It has to be sweet.  I love sweet tea.  I just don't like the calories with the sugar.  But with Pure Via, a zero calorie Stevia sweetener, I get the sweetness without the calories!  

Lemony Sweet Tea
- 1 Tbs of unsweetened iced tea mix 
- 8 oz of cold water
- handful of iced cubes 
- a squirt of two of Pure Via
- 1/2 of a juiced lemon  

Combine all of the ingredients above in a glass of your choice.  Either stir or shake - again, you choose.  Then sit back and sip your tea, preferably on a deck in the sun.  

*And if you want a sweeter tea, just add a little more no guilt Pure Via!*

I've read so much about stevia, but never tried it before.   I'm happy I did, because now I have a new and improved way to sweeten my tea and coffee.  

I do have a sweet tooth, and love sweets.  I also really enjoy sweet coffee in the morning.  I was able to sweeten my coffee with a hint of vanilla with the Pure Via Vanilla drops.  This taste was sweet and smooth.  A perfect way to start off my day. 


My Pure Via Summer kit also came with a box of Pure Via non-GMO packets.  They are so sweet and are an incredibly fine powder.  I cut the number of packets in half with them in my coffee and still had a sweet morning drink!  Very cool it's non-GMO too!  

How awesome would it be if one of my fabulous readers to win their own Pure Via Summer Kit?  That's right!  I have a giveaway for you!  

In your kit, you'll get everything pictured below.  

1 box of Pure Via non-GMO packets, 1 bottle of Pure Via stevia liquid, 1 bottle of Pure Via vanilla stevia liquid
1 container of unsweetened instant iced tea, 1 Pure Via mason jar w/ straw,

  2. I would add pure via to my tea or my smoothies if I need a little sweetness. Or maybe my apple cider vinegar concoction so I can cut down on the amount of apple juice I have to use to cut the vinegar taste.
