Maple Iced Tea Recipe
A sugar-free iced tea recipe that uses pure maple syrup to add a hint of sweetness, minerals, and antioxidants to your sweet tea.
This Maple Iced Tea recipe has been my go-to homemade iced tea recipe for years. It’s refreshing, simple, and has that wonderful sweetness that comes with sweet tea. I honestly didn’t even think about posting this recipe on my blog until recently.
I made this iced tea for a party and was asked for the recipe several times. Everyone loved that I used maple syrup instead of sugar. It was such a hit that I decided to share the recipe here.
I’m always looking for healthier alternatives to sugar in my recipes. Whether it’s honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar, I try to incorporate them as sugar replacements as often as possible.
I used honey to make my Strawberry Sweet Tea recipe. And I used maple syrup here.
I love using maple syrup because it mixes easily into liquid.
I also love that maple syrup is good for you! Not only is it full of antioxidants, but it also has nutrients like riboflavin, zinc, magnesium, calcium and potassium.
Ingredients needed to make iced tea with maple syrup:
- black tea bags
- pure maple syrup
Tip: make sure you are using pure maple syrup and not a fake pancake syrup ( which is just high fructose corn syrup or flavored sugar). Using pure maple syrup ensures that there is no sugar inside.
How to make this healthy sweet iced tea:
It’s really simple. To start, boil some water.
Then steep your tea bags in the boiling water and then remove them.
Then, mix in your maple syrup, and add some cold water on top.
You mix once more and then refrigerate your tea!
You can taste it before you refrigerate it to make sure it is the right amount of sweetness for you. If you like very sweet sweet tea then you may want to add more.
Calories in this Maple Iced tea:
The only calories in this recipe come from the maple syrup, so if you are using the amount in this recipe, which is 1/3 cup, then one serving of this iced tea would be about 34 calories.
