A lot of beverages we consume at home are either alcoholic or filled with unhealthy sweeteners. If you care enough about your liver or pancreas but still wish to consume chilled drinks on a regular basis, then there are actually healthy non-alcoholic drinks that can be easily made in your home.
Here are 10 cool drinks you can make at home with very little stress:
You know that drink your neighbor’s kid sells from a transparent glass jar in the middle of a warm summer? Well, you can make that in the comfort of your home. All you need is a supply of fresh lemons, flavoring e.g., honey or cane sugar, and of course, water.
This easy-to-make drink is very rich in Vitamin C and has been proven to help people with kidney stones. Just know that when you make this, you’re probably sabotaging some poor kid’s business, so…see you in hell.
This is a lemonade variant. Instead of using natural lemons or lemon flavoring, you make use of lime. It is a common beverage that is consumed in Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Pakistan, and India, and it is quite known across South-East Asia.
This drink can be quite refreshing but more importantly, its sugar concentration is much lower than regular lemonade. It can also be mixed with flavoring to give it an exotic taste.
This awesome non-alcoholic drink has two basic variants, which are made using different approaches. The much common Grape Spritzer is made by adding frozen grapes as toppings into the plain drink. This can be done in just a couple of minutes. Another way to make this drink is by blending the grapes along with the other ingredients and pouring it into a glass half-filled with ice cubes.
Yep, drinking tea cold, that is a thing now. Well to be fair, it has always been a thing so it really isn’t a ground-breaking discovery. You can, however, make your iced tea more unique by adding flavoring as well as sweeteners.
That massive fruit that is often used for witty puns and inappropriate jokes is actually an incredible raw material for an amazing non-alcoholic beverage. The drink is also very easy to make; all you have to do is scrape out the red pulp of the watermelon into a blender and blend until it is completely transformed into juice.
It is rich in Vitamins and Minerals and is definitely one of the healthiest drinks on this list.
Despite what you think, smoothies are definitely among easy-to-make non-alcoholic drinks out there. If you adhere strictly to any of the smoothie making guides on the internet, you will be a smoothie wizard in no time.
There are some non-alcoholic drinks that are produced by the application of heat in a process known as mulling. This juicing technique allows you to extract all the functional nutrients in the fruit as well as its flavor.
You can also spice it up by adding flavoring or sweeteners so that it meets your taste. This drink can be consumed anytime of the year depending on the weather. You can serve it iced during warm summer months or leave it in its warm state during the chilling winter period.
If you aren’t really particular about a beverage but just want to drink something healthy and non-alcoholic, then you can just mash a couple of fruits together, add water, a sweetener, and you’re good to go.
This drink is so easy to make and can be done with any fruit you have in your possession. What is also awesome about this beverage is that it keeps for a long period without losing its taste and nutrient value.
Try some, it’s good. Also, you’ll probably die if you don’t so…no pressure.
This is the yummy beverage, not whatever Nas’ ex-wife sang about; though, this drink is probably capable of bringing all the boys to the yard.
The ingredients that are used for this soothing drink can be easily acquired, and with milkshake makers now a thing, you can have a glass of the frosty drink at the snap of a finger while brutally murdering half the universe.
