With summer just starting, I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorite past drink recipes to help you stay hydrated as things start heating up! Here are my top 10 healthy drinks for summer!
Why order one of those sugar-bomb drinks from your favorite coffee chain when you can enjoy this healthy version of an iced mocha frappe? The best part? If you don’t drink coffee or are staying away from caffeine, you can sub Teeccino. You’ll thank me later, promise!
Okay, don’t be mad that I used the word “soda” here. 😉 What I mean by soda is a delicious sugar-free beverage made with antioxidant-rich green tea, sparkling water, and sweetened with a touch of liquid stevia. If you’re craving something bubbly, this should be a go-to this summer!
Do you have a leftover half of a watermelon in your fridge that really needs to go? I can help!
Make a giant batch of this chia agua fresca and invite your neighbors over. I promise I’ll even turn a blind eye if you slip in a bit of vodka.
This simple iced tea is really an herbal “tea” that is refreshing on even the hottest of days. Oh, and post contains a wacky story about how I once yelled from my kitchen window in an attempt to “save” a squirrel. I can’t believe I put that on the internet. 😉
Grab your favorite summer fruit, some ice, and maybe even a bit of sparkling water to create one of the most delicious slushies of all time.
It never fails that when I make – or even write about – this recipe, I have to listen to the Pina Colada song. You’d better jump to this recipe and make it before I start singing to you. If you like pina coladas….
Don’t worry – this isn’t the kind of beer that makes you feel crappy, it’s the kind that’s loaded with probiotics and makes your tummy feel better! This tutorial shows you how to ferment your own naturally fizzy ginger beer. It’s much easier to get started than it may sound!
Speaking of digestive remedies, you’ll love this one! It’s a simple tonic made with fresh fruit, coconut water, and extra brine from making sauerkraut. I know it sounds a bit strange, but after your first sip I think you’ll be a believer!
This simple lemonade is not only sugar-free, but it’s incredibly relaxing (who doesn’t love lavender?) and it’s full of magnesium to ease stress and promote various health benefits. Enjoy it on a hot afternoon or before bed to help you ease into sleep.
I have no problem with enjoying an alcoholic beverage once in awhile, but I also know that a lot of folks use summer as an excuse to over-indulge and then wind up regretting it the next day. If you’re in this boat, try this simple non-alcoholic mango mojito instead. The best part is that it’s not only easy to make, but you can substitute any seasonal fruit! Try strawberries in June, blueberries in July, or peaches in August!
