Whether hosting a Holiday Party, Football Game, Birthday Party or just hanging with friends, this drink is the perfect make ahead drink, Strawberry Basil Iced Tea. For those on the Keto diet, I used the Ketose Sweet Sugar in this drink.
Ketose Sweet with Stevia & Monk Fruit. “Steviva offers much more than just stevia to safely and healthfully replace artificial sweeteners and table sugar. They have gathered nature’s best sweeteners, such as stevia, monk fruit, erythritol, coconut palm sugar, agave nectar, inulin, crystalline fructose and xylitol, and meticulously formulated delicious, pure sweeteners that taste and function just like sugar—without the calories, carbs or blood sugar spikes”.
The Ketose Sweet Sugar is perfect as a sweetener to any drink.
