Apple Cider Sweet Tea ~ #OrganicStevia #InTheRaw

It's fall here in Colorado and the surrounding states.The leaves have changed colors and the air is crisp and clean. Fall has always been one of my favorite season. When I think fall, I think apple cider, but I love to bring a little bit of summer with me into the fall. See, I just love sweet tea and can never have enough of it. Today I want to share with you a way to combine the two compliments of Organic Stevia In The Raw®.

There's nothing quite like fall here in Colorado. A few weekends ago, Madison and I took a trip to the North Pole to visit Santa. Yes there is a North Pole where Santa resides, here in Colorado and you can meet with him all year long. It's a tradition that we've done yearly and one that she looks forward to. Once our visit was over, we then journeyed up to the mountains to watch the fall colors, which is called the changing of the leaves. It's quite a spectacle and one that's not to be missed when you live here in Colorado, or even when visiting. Fall is much more than pumpkin pie, apple cider and pumpkin spice latte's. So much more!

It's about spending quality time with your loves ones, and enjoying the things you love. Speaking about love, I love sugar and I use it in almost everything I make. I got my love of sugar from my dad, he made everything extra sweet and since then, that's just the way I like it. However, two teaspoons of sugar contains 32 calories, and I usually use more than that, so that's a lot for me. That's why I was happy to see that In The Raw introduced their Organic Stevia In The Raw to their family line up. What amazed me was that each packet is also the equivalent of 2 teaspoons of sugar and is only 3 calories. They're available in a 40 packet convenient box and is only $3.19/box. You can purchase it online or at a local retailer.

They are also:

  • USDA Organic Certified
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • Vegan Certified
  • Naturally Gluten-Free
  • Has a clean ingredient list

Since then, I've been using my Organic Stevia In The Raw in everything I've made. From my cupcakes, my coffee and every drink I have made. The kids and my husband can't even tell the difference. You can even use it to sprinkle on cereal and fruit. I recently made my famous Apple Cider Sweet Tea and everyone loved it, and I used my Organic Stevia In The Raw to sweeten it. So without further ado, let me share my recipe with you.

  1. My husband loves sweet tea and totally going to try this recipe for him now. Thanks for sharing, my friend!! :)

  2. This sounds so, so good! I live in the south, sweet tea capitol of the universe, so I am always eager to try a new variation on my favorite classic.

  3. Recipes like this are why I love fall and winter. I start seeing all these great cozy fall variations on classic beverages and dishes. I can't wait to make this.

  5. I could definitely use a cold glass of this sweet tea! Awesome idea for Fall! We always have to have a pitcher of some sort of sweet tea in our fridge.

  6. Ever since I started with my diet, I'm more conscious about my sugar intake. It's really important that we limit it or not eat anything with processed/refined sugar at all. I think stevia is a very good alternative! I love that it's affordable too. This sweet tea recipe is perfect for the season.

  7. That apple cider sweet tea sounds delicious! I actually haven't tried stevia at all before. I will definitely have to pick some up, and give it a try.

  8. I am a fan of both apple cider and sweet tea. I bet this would be a drink that I would really love.

  9. I had wondered about Stevia, I am trying to cut out the sugar I have in my coffee but need something to exchange it with. Perhaps Stevia Sugar in the Raw will work for me?!

  10. I am more of a southern sweet tea drinker, never thought about adding apple cider to it. This sure does look delicious and refreshing.

  11. Who wouldn't want to use a healthier alternative for sugar. I think this is perfect and I've heard so many good things about it as well. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I just love enjoying the flavors that we have for this season, this tea is a must try!
