Fruit Tea RecipeSince I have diabetes I am no longer allowed to drink. I miss my favorite blackberry wine. My wife will let me sneak a sip on occasion but that doesn’t happen very often.

As with other diabetics, I have had to develop a healthier eating lifestyle. It really hasn’t been a challenge, I have just had to change my way of thinking and have fun with it. Since I love to experiment its been easy to come up with recipes that will keep my sugar low. Try this Fruit tea recipe. It is a beautiful tea that I serve at home and at catering events. ENJOY!
