I was just reading this morning how many kids suffer from a lack of proper eating habits and bad parent choices when it comes to the main meals of the day. This also applies if you’re an adults, so why not go down the list of 13 home made drinks that are both delicious and healthy?
13. Mint Refresher
You may prepare this drink with or without the maple syrup, depends on your preference and taste. Regardless, this drink is a fantastic way of getting some vitamin C to your bloodstream while also feeling chilled and refreshed.
12. Strawberry Lemonade
The “lemonade” powder you see on the shelves is both synthetic and non-healthy, so the real lemonade experience is the sure way of not ruining your waistline and getting a thrilling day for those ignored taste-buds
11. Vanilla Spice Coffee Creamer
I’m not sure if we can call this a drink all by itself, but this will definitely sweeten your mornings without all of those unpronounceable and damaging ingredients found inside the store-bought coffee creamer. Enjoy!
10. Hibiscus Iced Tea Sparkler
You can quit your soda habit; it’s tough but doable, as well as healthy. But if you’re a fizz-fanatic, you might as well chill out poolside, in the sun, and sip on one of these. It’s better for you!
9. Virgin Banana Piña Colada
Virgin always sounds better, and such is the case with this refreshing treat with real fruit within. This drink doesn’t contain alcohol, although it may very well do if you’re in the mood to party; either way, health is on its way.
8. Raspberry, Rose, and Vanilla Water
Doctors always say to get hydrated and drink plenty of liquids, but it’s not like we’re always in the mood for that. So, why not trick yourself into drinking more water by infusing it. This combination of flowers and fruit is the perfect way to stay hydrated while still keeping your taste-buds excited.
7. Healthy Orange Julius
Avoiding mall food court temptation is tough and sticking to your healthy shopping list is even tougher. But by whipping up one of these citrus treats within te comfort of your own home is totally worth it!
6. Watermelon Basil Soda
The watermelon is my favorite fruit, and for me to be able to enjoy it in a drinkable form is heaven in a glass. If you’re more of a sweeter guy or girl, you might want to try adding 100% pure pear juice. I would have never even thought of that, but I’m happy anyway!
5. Cold-Brewed Citrus Green Tea
The “iced tea” you find in the supermarket is really far from the truth of the label; it sometimes doesn’t even contain real tea at all. Besides, we’re all sick of sugar or artificial sweeteners. Which is why this version packs that citrus punch that you love so much, without the nasty stuff part of the package.
4. Lemon-Lime Soda
You may actually add some syrup to this drink, if you’re one of the many people who just can’t go without Sprite, 7-Up, or Sierra Mist. I, for one, prefer it raw, as is, for that sour taste and Vitamin C boost!
3. Fresh Cranberry Juice
Cranberry juice is filled with antioxidants, which is something few people know. It will prevent diseases, unless it’s that store drink loaded with sugar. However, this recipe will give you that tart taste you love while giving your body all the things it needs so much.
2. Pineapple Orange Juice
This drink is really simple: two ingredients, no added sugar, and it’s cheap to make. Furthermore, it’s tasty and the perfect breakfast drink for anyone planning on getting healthy and thin really fast.
1. Mango Mock-o-Lada
Made with real mango, this drink is way better than those bottled ones you see advertised everyday. Feel free to add alcohol if it’s Friday and you’re getting bored, but please note that alcohol consumption in larger doses than recommended is also hazardous to your health.
