A Lacey Perspective: Zero Calorie Sweet Tea

*recipe below*

When I was younger and living in Texas my mother’s sweet tea was what I ran to after school. The bright lemon and sugariness was addicting.

I was determined to find a way this favorite could be a bit more “skinny recipe” friendly. I had no idea as I started to play around with creating it I would find one that is ZERO CALORIES! Truly, I was so impressed with myself once I tasted it I ran to my mom’s to have her approve. I shared a glance of it once on my Instagram Stories and y’all were begging to get this really easy recipe. I got you…
