Pop of Color and Flavor


I drink a lot of water.
And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT.
Over 3 gallons a day to be exact.
(all thanks to my diabetes insipidus)

It’s not too far into the day before I become completely bored with the taste of water.
And so I turn to pop.  Not the best alternative, I know.

So, recently I’ve been trying to limit my daily pop intake and replace it with something yummy and full of water that is just as flavorful without all the sugar. Hence, operation “add color and flavor to my water”.

I went to the grocery store and picked up my favorite fruits, fresh herbs, a 12-pack of tall mason jars and some Crystal Light Liquid. Then I went home and got to work on infusing water with a variety of combinations. The best part is that I was able to make 10 different variations, seal them up in jars and then pop them in the fridge to drink at my leisure the next day.  Not to mention how much fun I had coming up with such colorful alternatives to soda. Here are the concoctions I came up with.

These are my favorite herbs to include in drinks. From top to bottom: mint, rosemary, basil, sage.

This combo is a fail-proof addition to any beverage: watermelon, mint and cucumber–sooooo fresh!

1-Crystal Light

1. Freshy Fresh: Lime, Cucumber, Strawberries
2. Summer Lovin’: Boysenberries, Sage and Peach Bellini Crystal Light Liquid
3. Mango Mint Passion: Lime Juice, Limes, Mint, Mango Passionfruit Crystal Light Liquid
4. Pomegranate Paradise variation: Pomtini Crystal Light Liquid, Oranges
5. Spring in Your Step: Watermelon, Rosemary
6. Citrus Burst: Lemon, Lime, Orange
7. Virgin Peach Bellini: chilled sparkling water, Peach Bellini Crystal Light Liquid, orange garnish
8. Berry Yummy: Boysenberries, Strawberries, Blueberry Raspberry Crysal Light Liquid
9. Refresh: Watermelon and Mint
10. Cleanse: Cucumber and Mint

Note: In hindsight, I would have used less lime in my infusions because it was a little more bitter than I expected and made some of the drinks too tart for my liking.

You can visit the Crystal Light Liquid page for additional mixology options that are so yummy.

I added a burst of flavor to a handful of my drinks with these Crystal Light Liquid drink mixes as well. I have been a long-time fan of their powder drink mixes and was so excited about the release of these new liquid mixes.  They don’t need to be refrigerated, so I have even kept them in my purse to add to a bottle of water on-the-go. They are also perfect for creating the perfect mocktail. I tried the combinations below and loved them (try adding lots of ice to make them extra delicious and crisp):

This is the Virgin Peach Bellini, and it was my favorite. So much my favorite, that I felt it deserved a little dressing up with this fancy umbrella and straw. But really, what a great drink to surprise guests with this summer!

    I love Crystal Light, especially their peach bellini powder so I am super pumped about the new liquid line! I can’t wait to try some of your mixes! Anyways, I love to incorporate color into my food when I’m making meals I try to get as many colors as I can for the health benefits and it also looks prettier! I also try to wear a different color every day to work and not wear black too often… I think it keeps my attitude positive throughout the day to dress brightly!

I think you’re very inspiring, you always come across as happy and positive and sometimes I find myself giggling at your words and other times my heart melts. I’m enjoying looking back through your older posts. This is a great idea today, I drink a lot of water and try to avoid pop, I just wish we had those cool mason jars here in rainy England! I recall you mentioning Petunia Pickle Bottom, there’s a tour of her home on http://www.designmom.com/2013/05/living-with-kids-denai-jones/#more-35869 today, if you haven’t already seen it.

      Have you ever heard of yonannas? It’s an small kitchen appliance that you put frozen bananas and fruit in and it comes out in an ice cream/frozen yogurt consistancy. It is so yummy and best of all it is just fruit so it’s healthy and makes me feel like I just ate ice cream. (I’m a major ice cream addict!) I live in Canada, but I’m assuming you could probably buy it in the States.

    Well, I’m with you on adding some fruit to my water! I’m not as brave as you though and have stuck with lemon in warm water every morning. That’s the food answer. In general in life I’ve been following the likes of some of my favorite bloggers and painting things that I never before would have thought to do. A splash of yellow here, an aqua frame there. I love the color in brings to my home.

    Here in Canada we have something called Sodastream. It turns regular tap water into sparkling water or pop in just a minute or two. You can buy tons of flavours. I have never had it (I can’t handle carbonation) but I know people who love it and own the appliance to make it. I guess it’s good if you want the fizz pop gives you but without all the sugar and crap that comes along with pop.

On days I am feeling like Mum of the year I wear bright colors and on days I am exhausted I default to something more drab or pastel.
