Can you say YUM to a nice refreshing fruit fizzy drink to keep you cool on a hot sweltering day?
Depending on which phase of the HCG diet you’re on determines which fruits you can use, but there’s something for everyone when it comes to summertime fruits. Fresh made fruit fizzy drinks aren’t just yummy, they provide bonuses like balancing blood sugar, detoxing the kidneys and liver, and boosting metabolism. What more could you ask for?!
The base of any good fizzy drink is sparkling or mineral water combined with a handful of fresh fruit, cucumber slices, fresh mint and a splash of citrus – that’s IT!
During Phase 2 you’re limited to using strawberries, apples, lemons, limes and cucumbers, but it’s not a problem getting creative with these.
During Phase 3 you have all the wonderful berry options, mangoes, peaches, oranges, and just about everything except bananas and dates.
Minty Citrus Delight: Combine 1 cup sparkling or mineral water, some fresh mint sprigs, cucumber and lime slices, and a dash of fresh lime juice. Personally, I like to combine citrus flavors for this one – lime with grapefruit, orange or lemon is fabulous!
Berry Cooler: Combine 1 cup sparkling or mineral water, a handful of berries (or mix up raspberries, blueberries and strawberries), add a slice of citrus (lemon or orange), and a splash of unsweetened cranberry juice.
Last but not least, pour your delicious concoction into a martini glass and go soak up the sun……..
The possibilities are endless so get the fixings and get mixing!
