Healthy Summer Sip Recipes
Reprinted with the kind permission of Sue Ingebretson
 
Are you looking for healthy summer sip recipes? Would you like to enjoy the flavors of summertime while supporting your body with nutritious, healthy drinks? Enjoy the following simple recipes and be sure to share them with friends.
 
Try the following recipes that take advantage of summertime seasonal produce such as antioxidant-rich watermelon, lemons, limes, berries, cherries, cucumbers, citrus, apples, and fresh herbs.
 
Healthy Sports Drink Swap
 
Have you ever read the ingredients in popular sports drinks? Touted as healthy, they’re anything but. They’re loaded with added sugar, salt, fake dyes and flavorings. Some use even worse ingredients such as brominated vegetable oils. Blech!
 
The good news is that you don’t have to bother with buying something off the shelf. You can make your own nutritious electrolyte replacement drinks at home.
 
Here’s a sweet one to try
 
Watermelon Picker Upper Recipe 
  • 1 Cup Watermelon chunks (seeds removed)
  • 1 Cup Coconut Water (unsweetened)
  • Juice of ½ of a Lime or Lemon
  • Pinch of Sea salt
  • Fresh Mint 
Directions:
Place all of the ingredients into a blender and whiz away! Pour into chilled glass and enjoy.
 
Options:
Try adding fresh or frozen berries for a tasty punch.
 
Picnic-Worthy Lemonade
 
Lemonade is synonymous with summer, but why not add a zip of flavor with your favorite berries? This is refreshing lemonade at its best.
 
Raspberry Lemonade Recipe 
  • 1 Cup fresh squeezed Lemon juice
  • 5 Cups Water
  • Pint of Raspberries
  • Sweeten to taste (add Raw Honey or Stevia) 
Directions:
Add raspberries to 1 cup water and mix in a blender. Use a fine meshed strainer to remove seeds.
 
Add water to lemon juice, berry puree, and sweetener in a large pitcher. Stir, add mint and chill or pour over ice.
 
Options:
Use any favorite berry or in-season fruit such as cherries.  
 
Change up Your Everyday Water
 
Simple Fruit Infused Hydration Recipe
 
These refreshing ways to spiff up your water intake are total no-brainers. Simply use clean, filtered water or your favorite bottled mineral waters and add any of the following: 
  • Berries
  • Cucumber
  • Fresh Mint
  • Fresh Basil
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Oranges
  • Mango
  • Cherries
  • Apple slices 
What are your favorite water add-ins?
 
Wanna know how to use up those leftover cherries you bought at the farmer’s market? Here’s a Cherry Berry Blitz dessert recipe you’ll love.
