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.

Enjoy!
