“From I LOVE the new Lipton Diet Green Tea, Citrus flavor. But I can go through a 12 pack in a HURRY. Although 50 cents a bottle doesn't seem like that much, it can REALLY add up when you drink as much of it as I like to :OOPS: I searched for a copycat recipe and found this one on the Top Secret web site. I actually haven't made this recipe, because I couldn't find the True Lime at my grocery store. I did find True Lemon with the artifical sweeteners, and have posted the recipe I made using it also, TSR Version of Lipton Diet Green Tea With Citrus by Todd Wilbur. I hope to find the True Lime at another grocery store and make this exact recipe as well! ***Recipezaar recognizes True Lemon, but not True Lime. This recipe should have True Lime Crystals instead of True Lemon crystals***”
