Healthy drink ideas! Good for adults and children!

Here are some guiltless, delicious drinks for when water just isn’t cutting it!

Dandyblend– This is one of my favorite drinks! Its awesome hot or cold. Depending on how much powder you use, it can be similar to either a tea or an espresso drink! Many people use this as a coffee substitute. There is no caffeine, no acidity, and no bitterness. Although it contains barley and rye, the gluten is eliminated in the extracting process.

  • Some people drink it plain. I add unsweetened almond milk and a few drops of stevia when I make it cold and organic half and half when I make it hot.
  • Ingredients: extracts of roasted barley, rye, chicory root, dandelion root and sugar beet
I buy the 2 pound bag (it is the cheapest per ounce) so I can give little ziplocks of it to people who want to try it!

Zevia– a healthy “soda” with zero calories and nothing artificial. Most are caffeine free. You can find them at most health foods stores or on their website; free shipping if you buy 3 cases!

  • This is a great substitute for high sugar sodas or sugar free sodas that use harmful chemicals like aspartame or splenda to sweeten them.
  • Flavors: cola, cream soda, ginger root beer, grape, dr. zevia, ginger ale, black cherry, lemon lime twist, mountain zevia, grapefruit citrus, strawberry, orange, cherry cola.
  • All the flavors are clear because they have removed the artificial colors from their ingredients…sweet!
  • Ingredients: carbonated water, natural flavors, stevia leaf extract, citric acid
