Dr. Michelle’s Super Fat-Busting Green Tea Lemonade

Now you can reap all the fat-busting benefits of green tea lemonade without the excessive amounts of calories.  This tea is sweetened with stevia—an herb that is naturally sweet.

6 green tea bags

1quart or litre of pure alkaline water

4 lemons, juiced

10-20 drops of liquid stevia (or to taste)


Fresh mint (optional)

Bring the water to boil.  Add the 6 green tea bags and let steep for about 5-10 minutes.  In the meantime, juice the lemons and add the stevia.   Add ice to the green tea and allow to cool before adding the lemon juice-stevia mixture.  Stir until mixed and enjoy served over ice.  Garnish with a sprig of mint if desired.

I wish Care2 would stop using this site to give Ms. Cook free advertising. Out of the 40 or so "articles" of hers I've read, only one or two was anything more than an ad.

Wow. First rinsing with green tea stopping plaque bacteria, and now belly fat? The good news keep on coming. :D

Green tea packs a wallop of caffeine, and is no more healthy just because it has green in the name! Won't help intelligence either, ha ha.

Not so bad for Michelle Schoffro Cook. Just a little plug for her "upcoming weight loss book." I drink green tea every day, and I like it straight.

Figures. People "of color" tend to be less educated, and thus more gullible to such propaganda.

Good Afternoon and thank you for this article -it was informative - We should boycott all of these …

Tourist at home? This reminds me of a very funny Czech cartoon from the 1980's...

Nice. Some other good advice- eat organic and practice handwashing. Thanks.
