I have been trying to lose weight once again and since it is now summer I have been wanting to make some homemade lemonade that won’t add the pounds back on.  There is a ton of Oolong Tea sitting in my cupboard from the THM eating plan, so I wanted that to be in my lemonade.  In addition, my imagination was sparked by a recipe pinned on Pinterest.  This recipe was a Julian Michael’s weight loss tea, claiming you could lose 5 lbs in 5 days.  That sounds good to me, but not having all the ingredients was a slight problem.  So here is what I came up with and it does taste pretty good, and best of all it does not use sugar.  You can just add your own sweetener if you don’t want to use Truvia.  Maybe I’ll lose that 5 lbs., we will see….

Oolong Lemonade

3-16.9 oz bottles of purified water

1 oolong tea bag steeped for 5 min in 1 small cup of hot water

4 Truvia packets

1/4 organic lemon juice

Prepare your tea and add the 4 packets of Truvia while it is still hot.  When the tea is done steeping, add to your pitcher.  Pour in 3 water bottles and 1/4 cup of organic lemon juice.  Add 2 packets of truvia to a large glass with ice and pour the lemonade over the ice.  Enjoy.
