Craving an ice cold glass of Panera Green Tea on a warm summer day? You can totally make it at home with this simple copycat recipe that has just three ingredients.

So, in an effort to avoid coming into contact with the counter o’ carbs, I found this copycat Panera Green Tea recipe that I can make at home. Give it a whirl and let me know what you think.
