How to make healthy drinks at home, when you’re limited in time?

Welcome.  I need to drink a lot of liquid, as my doctor said. It is very good for my body. But I am always in a hurry and don’t have enough time for making the cocktails or some interesting beverages.  Nevertheless, I like them so much, and sometimes my roommate cooks it for me. I noticed that she puts much sugar in her drinks, so they are not healthy. I dare say, cocktails are even harmful to my health. But I still don’t have time to try my own healthy drinks. Besides, I have no idea what component would go with each other.

So, to be honest, I don’t want to drink only water, or tea, or coffee, or milk – I want to have a varied menu of beverages, so that’s why I am here – what recipes of drinks can you recommend me? They can be based on that drinks that I have already mentioned or you can offer something else, I am not afraid to try something new. I’m planning also to teach my friend how to make healthy cocktails, without so much sugar in it, as I usually have no time to cook.

Waiting forward your recipes. Thanks for your help!

Hello, dear!

I truly understand you. That’s why I have for you some recipes for drinks. Tasty, healthy and easy to make. What can be better? First of all, I must say, that you need any blender for mix ingredients you have. But if you do not have any, I recommend you make lemonade. Really very easy. You just need sparkling/still water, lemon, strawberry, and ice. Also if you want, add a little bit of mint. For prepare just put ice in cubes, pour water into large capacity and add fruits. Please note, that you can choose iced strawberry.
This lemonade can tone up you in hot days or has simple refreshing effect in any day.

Speaking about another nutrition and good drink. If you have a squeezer, you can make home-made juice. If it will be very sweet, you can add more water. The best juice is from apples and oranges. In this case, just try to mix. For example, I just love home-made carrot juice. And of course, you can make shakes. Just mix in blender all berries you have, add a little bit ice and water. Amazing taste.

So, as you can see, it is really easy to cook.
Hope you will like it 🙂
