Want the flavor of delicious frappuccino without the caffeine? Need something lower-carb than some of the chain coffees?
Raspberry zinger tea from Celestial Seasonings gives pink precious beauty and flavor without the jitters.

1 packet sweetener
1 Tbsp Davincis sugar free vanilla syrup, or 2 drops Stevia Sweetleaf vanilla liquid drops

Combine powdered sweetener, tea and water. Let steep for 5 minutes. Squeeze excess tea bag into water after removing to get the most of the flavor and color.
