3 HEALTHY SUMMER MOCKTAILS FOR MAMAS-TO-BE

Everyone loves to sip on a special beverage once in a while, especially in the heat of summer.  If you're like me and avoiding alcohol due to pregnancy, or just for your own health, it gets a little boring drinking water when everyone else has a fancy cocktail.  That's why I came up with a few drinks that are easy to make, low in sugar, and so tasty you won't feel left out of the party for one second!

WATERMELON JALAPENO MARGARITA

Ingredients:
2 cups cubed watermelon, frozen
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded
Juice from 1 lime
Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  
Add lime juice and/or water for desired flavor/consistency.  
Serve immediately 

 

PEACH BASIL ICED TEA

Ingredients:
4 tea decaf teabags
Pure liquid stevia
3 Peaches
1 bundle of basil
Directions:
Brew tea according to package.
Slightly sweeten tea to your preference with a few drops of stevia
Cut peaches into slices and add to the pitcher
Roughly chop basil and add to the mixture
Refrigerate for a least a few hours(or overnight) so that the tea soaks up all the flavor of the peaches and basil. 

CRANBERRY LIMEADE 

Ingredients: 
2 parts sparkling water
1 part pure, unsweetened cranberry juice
1/2 part limeade(I like simple truth brand)
Lime wedges
Directions:
Pour sparkling water, cranberry juice, and limeade over ice.
Top with extra lime juice and a lime wedge.
