If you have followed my blog for any amount of time you have most likely heard me “rage” against artificial sweeteners. Namely, aspartame and sucralose. They are in everything. I recently purchased my daughter a “healthy” lunchable and noticed the little drink packet you pour into the water has sucralose in it. Ahhhh. I am one of the lucky few who are very sensitive to the effects of these artificial sweeteners. Here is a blog I wrote last year detailing side effects I experience every time I ingest this poisonous crap.
Which brings me to the point of this post I love to drink something with a little “fizz” but am not a fan of full calorie sodas, and definitely not their diet counterparts. So I created this very simple drink this week which has me super happy and feeling fulfilled once again …
- Lime Perrier
- Pomegranate Juice
- 1 Packet of Truvia (Stevia) for added sweetness – optional
Mix a splash (or however much to taste) of pomegranate juice into a glass of Lime Perrier or sparkling water of your choice. Mix in a packet of stevia, then add some ice. It’s delicious
Try it with any juice combination, you could even add some fresh squeezed fruit juice, the possibilities are endless!
