Tuesday Tips

Did you think I meant cocktails?  Sorry, not this time!  These are some non-alcoholic and no calorie drinks for you!  I have been enjoying one of these in the afternoons to keep me from snacking, to be honest.  

Here we go!

Pineapple Refresher

My grocery is Kroger, but I’m sure you can find other brands of the items below.

For this one, you will use half of a stick of the Crystal Light lemonade (or another brand) and half of a stick of the coconut.  Add the seltzer water, stir, add ice, and enjoy!  This drink is so yummy and tastes like summer.  Shout out to my work friend E for this idea.  I added the lemonade portion to her concoction.

Starbuck’s Passionfruit Lemonade Copycat Recipe

I got this off of Pinterest several years ago.  You can also brew a cup of Tazo brand tea and that is the brand that Starbuck’s uses.  I believe the flavor is Passionfruit.  Let the tea cool and add the lemonade stick – I only use about 1/2-3/4 because I don’t like it too sweet.  Stir and add ice.  So, so good!  

Blueberry Lemonade

This needs some work because the blueberry flavor is not strong enough.  I may buy frozen blueberries and make a simple syrup with some liquid stevia drops.  I used the whole lemonade stick for this one and poured the seltzer over it.  It was good but needed more blueberry in my opinion.

I love water and drink a lot of it, but these are great when I need something different or like I mentioned, to stave off afternoon snacking!

Would you try any of these?  Do you have any go to drink “recipes”?  

Thanks for reading!

  1. Thanks for nice drink recipes! I will definitely try them this summer, we don’t have the ingredients over here…
    Well, I’m always in for ice coffee! I make it with instant coffee and milk, no sugar. If you want “sweetness” you can add cocoa. Nice to drink with a straw out on the patio!
