Serves: 8 servings
  • 8 cups water, divided
  • 2 teaspoons zero-calorie stevia sweetener (such as Truvia or Splenda)
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  1. In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of the water and the sweetener to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring regularly, until the sweetener is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
