I received the featured product for review. All opinions are my own.
Ice cold water is my first choice for quenching my thirst. But sometimes you want a little flavor that plain water can’t provide. So what do you do? Avoid those sugary drinks full of High-fructose corn syrup, and try these 3 refreshing drinks you’ll feel good about gulping down.
Healthy Drink Options
Let’s start with flavored water, a simple yet brilliant way to make plain water tasty. Instead of buying flavored water from the grocery store, make your own at home. Simply add any of the following to a cold glass or pitcher of water:
My Favorite Flavored Water Combinations
Berry Patch – blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
Raspberry Lime Chiller – crushed raspberries and fresh squeezed lime juice
Lime and Mint Leaf
Citrus Fusion – 1 lime, 1 lemon and 1 orange into rounds
Lemon Chiller – lemon rounds and fresh squeezed lemon juice
Sparkling water with a splash of fruit juice
Add sliced citrus fruits or zest to sparkling water for a fizzy treat! You could also add any of the above suggested flavors to sparkling water.
For some people accustomed to drinking sweet beverages, drinking water can take some time to get used to. If you are hooked on sweet tasting drinks, you may want to quench your thirst with V8 V-Fusion Refreshers.
V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers
New V8 V-Fusion Refreshers are a light and crisp juice drink with a 20-25% blend of fruit and vegetable juices that come in four delicious – and unique – family pleasing flavors. Made with both fruit and vegetable juices, V8 V-Fusion Refreshers are naturally sweetened, contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and are an excellent source of Vitamin C.
I mostly drink water throughout the day, but there are times when I want more flavor. And since I’m limited to how much I can drink a day, I don’t want to waste my 1 liter on drinks that are overly sweet.
I recently had the opportunity to try out two new V-Fusion Refreshers, and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious and refreshing they both are.
I was sent Cranberry Grape and Black Cherry Berry. I tried Cranberry Grape first. I’ve always loved Cranberries and grapes, so I thought the combo would taste great. And I was right. It was light, refreshing and quenched my thirst. Then I tried Black Cherry Berry, and didn’t like it as much as the Cranberry Grape, but it was still tasty.
Although the Black Cherry Berry wasn’t my favorite, the rest of my family raved about it. They said it taste much better than the Cranberry Grape. It’s hard to find a brand of juice that pleases us all, so I’m glad that we found one that isn’t full of junk, and taste great.
V8 V-Fusion Refreshers are available in four flavors: Black Cherry Berry, Cranberry Grape, Peach Strawberry and Tangerine Passionfruit. Each bottle is 46 ounces and has a suggested retail price of $3.49. For more information visit www.v8juice.com.
