  • Drinks anyone?

    I am so tired of water all the time. I do drink coffee in the morning but that's about it. I'm not crazy about herbal tea and despise hot tea. I really love regular old iced tea and don't really like green tea by itself. Anyone have any good suggestions?

    Thanks

    Have you tried Zevia sodas? They are sodas sweetened with stevia. They've got this ginger root flavored one which actually tastes more like iced tea in my opinion.

    I also like a smoothie every so often. Buy a bag of frozen strawberries, grab a handfull, and blend in one banana, some spinach, and liquid of your choice (yogurt, water, fruit juice...)

    As for water, I have started squeezing a lemon slice into it. Just a little lemon makes water less boring.

    Wine?

      Kombucha
      Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

          I don't like lemon in my water at all, unfortunately. I have heard of Zevia, might try it and yes I love wine!

              Coke Zero with a splash of organic lime juice and ice! In the evening I use to pour some Bacardi rum into it as well...

                Sometimes I like to keep a pitcher of water in the fridge with slices of cucumber in it...sliced ginger would be pretty awesome too, I think.
                If you don't like lemon, there's always lime, orange or grapefruit.
                If herbal tea is out, brew up some regular old iced tea, just sweeten with honey or stevia instead of 5 pounds of white sugar.
                Soda water with berries in it is delicious.

                          I did, unfortunately. I bought a couple cases in various flavors, hated every one. They're really revolting. That's why I'm back to Coke Zero.

                            Rooibos is a South African plant, not technically a tea at all. Zero caffeine and zero diuretic properties. Delicious all by itself or with a chai spice mix added. The Tea Spot.com is a good place to look.

                            Crio Bru is ground roasted chocolate that brews like coffee.

                            Teeccino is another roasted beverage made out of roots and seeds.

                            Add coconut cream to any of the above for even more yumminess.

                              I'm a mostly plain water gal, but for special occasions, I make a pitcher of water with cucumber and mint for tea breaks and the like, and I squeeze a red grapefruit for a cocktail hour drink. The sweet/sour/bitter reminds of me of a Campari & soda, and the color is pretty enough to make it a satisfying non-alcoholic drink.
