N is for New Favorite Drink

I am addicted to Sonic's Peach Diet Green Tea. I can get a Route 44 every day from 2-4 p.m. for a little over a dollar. Yum! It's so refreshing! But I don't want to spend $1 a day and I don't really know what's in it, you know what I mean? And I have noticed that the tea tastes kind of skunky most days, which tells me that it's not fresh.

I figured out a way to make my own Peach Green Tea. I brew a small pitcher of green tea, with no sweetener, and put it in the fridge. Then I purchased Mango Peach flavored MiO Liquid Water Enhancer. When I am ready for a glass of Peach Green Tea, I just pour myself a glass of tea and add two squirts of MiO.

It's healthy, pure green tea. Yes, it has an added artificial sweetener (Boo), and I have tried my best to eliminate artificial sweeteners from my diet (mostly aspartame). But, I feel like it's better than buying it from Sonic. At least I know exactly what's in it. It tastes great and it's CHEAP!!!

This still won't replace my usual iced green tea with a squeeze of lemon on those days when it's really hot. But, it's a nice alternative when I am needing something a little sweet.

You should try it!

  1. MMmmmm! Sounds very good! I am trying to find things that are a tad healthier if I am going to splurge when going out with the family. Since Sonic is now only a mile from my house, it has become a favorite treat. I'll try the peach green tea! It has to be better for me than the Vanilla cokes I used to love so much! :)
