This Strawberry Vanilla Sweet Tea is refreshing, summery and low in calories! Inspired by Equal 0-Calorie sweetener and our recent trip to South Africa, it’s one of my new favorite drinks!

If you read my recent post about the time we spent in Cape Town, South Africa then you read about our high tea experience. One of my favorite parts of the high tea was the strawberry vanilla tea that I drank. So good! I thought it would be super fun to recreate a cold version of it.
And since I’m not a huge fan of drinking my calories (I’d much rather save my calories for cake 😉 ), using Equal to sweeten my tea was perfect!
The fun package of goodies they sent me included Equal Spoonful, which is what I used in the sweet tea. I had never even heard of it before, so I was excited to try it. The thing I like about it is that it measures spoon-for-spoon like sugar, meaning I don’t have to do any math to try and figure out how much to use. Yay!
And this tea is so easy to make. Start of by making a strawberry syrup that will give the flavor to the tea. Water, Equal Spoonful and strawberries are brought to a boil, bringing out the strawberry flavors. Once heated and cooled, strain the strawberries and discard.
The strawberry syrup will be added to regular sweet tea and flavored with a bit of vanilla.
It’s great served with some strawberry slices and is so fun and refreshing for summer. The hubs and I loved the flavor – it’s a great change from your traditional sweet tea.
