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.

This was SOOO not worth clicking through three bloody pages to review. I'm going back to my original determination simply to not do it.

There are two schools of thought here: one is represented well in the article written above; the other is this: "Scientists Say, 'Don’t Be Duped By Alkaline Water:' Late-Breaking Scoop On The Truth Behind The Alkaline Water Marketing." HypePurative – Adding Wellness to Water

(I'm not-so-secretively hoping that ionized water does the trick!)
