The holidays are upon us and so are all the treats that come along with them. I have a definite sweet tooth and love to sample the goodies, but moderation is important for me if I want to keep fitting in my clothes! If I am craving something sweet even after dessert, I often make tea. One of my favorite drinks is mint tea. I have also read that mint serves as an appetite suppressant so it can helps in two ways! I love adding a little bit of sugar free chocolate flavoring (not the syrup) and milk. It tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream in tea form!
Chocolate Mint Tea
makes one serving2 T. sugar free chocolate flavoring
3 T. skim milk
mint tea bag (I use Bigelow Mint Medley, but you can use any mint tea you'd like)
6-8oz. hot water
Mix all ingredients together and let tea steep for a few minutes to get the minty flavor. Adjust amounts to your liking. This makes a delicious drink for winter weather, but also tastes great cold! You can also use this as a cute gift bag idea and include tea, flavoring, travel mug, and the recipe.
