Spring is nearly over. It’s getting hotter and hotter, and we drink more and more water. There are hundreds of ways to quench your thirst. The simplest is drinking water. However, we have so many unhealthy alternatives to water that, most of the time we prefer to drink one of those: cola, bottled fruit juice, beer, etc. They either have a lot of sugar or are alcoholic, which means we have to think twice before consuming. This raspberry flavored sparkling mineral water recipe is a good alternative to those unhealthy beverages.
Actually quenching your thirst with something which is not water is tricking your body with an unwanted type of liquid. Having a fizzy drink will require a lot more water intake for your body to get rid of the unhealthy stuff it includes. Even freshly squeezed fruit juice has a lot of fructose, which is also sugar. Okay, we like those unhealthy drinks, but we also need to consider the needs of our body.
If drinking water is the best, we can make it more enjoyable, so it is both healthy and nice to drink. The solution is hidden in the ice cubes. You can freeze any fruit or green in an ice cube, and drop a few of them into your glass of water. That is both healthy and enjoyable. We always have a few ice cube trays filled with fruits in the freezer. What is more, it is a good way to keep spring fruits fresh for the hot summer days.
I used raspberries this time, but you can use any fruit you like: cherries, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple cubes, etc. With a fresh touch of mint flavor, it is a nice way to drink more water in the summer. Let’s go and get some fresh fruit and make them ready for the hot summer afternoons.
