What is the Next Best Thing to Drink Besides Water?
Everybody knows that water is a cleansing, detoxifying, and refreshing drink. But there are times when you want to drink something more flavorful than just plain water. Most particularly kids. They’ve got a sweet tooth, causing them to have that craving for anything sweet. So it’s typical for some kids to reach for that bottle of soda, store-bought fruit juices, and milkshakes that contain WAY more than just milk…
They feel refreshed after gulping their drink BUT what about the nasty stuff that gets into their body? There’s high sugar, simple carbs, and not to mention those chemicals from artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, etc. in those drinks. What’s the best juice for kids, then, that is free from bad components, yet something they will actually enjoy drinking?
Pineapple Coconut Water
Is it tough to entice your kids to eat some fruit? Then maybe they should drink their fruit instead! Pineapple coconut water is exactly just that – a healthy drink made from pineapple and coconut water. That’s it!
All you need is a cup of fresh pineapple chunks, coconut water, and a tablespoon of Stevia (depending on how you sweet you want it to be). Super simple, super easy! You can drink this juice up as it is or make ice cubes that you can add to room temperature water for some interesting flavor.
Perfect to drink after school, great beverage while your kids enjoy their meals. With a ton of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, this drink is not only flavorful with a unique taste but it’s also amazingly nutritious!
Raise your hand if you were once hooked on one of those strawberry milk drinks sold in stores. I know I was! Well, up until my mom read the label and saw that it’s full of weird ingredients… Chemicals and all that stuff. Definitely not something your child or you should be drinking.
So this strawberry milk drink recipe that I came up with is much healthier and contains only two ingredients – strawberries and milk! Not only is this healthy drink perfect as a nutritious beverage but it’s also a wholesome snack or dessert. Simply add some yogurt, freeze it, then you have yummy frozen pops to enjoy!
Instead of serving your kids with soda or high-fructose juices, this strawberry milk is the perfect alternative. It’s packed with nutrition, amazing taste, and zero junk that will support your child’s health and well-being!
