TTB Files: 5 Healthy & Refreshing Drinks That Beat The Heat

During summer months it is easy to get bored drinking bottle after bottle of plain old water. Hydration, especially during summer months, is extremely important. By the time you are experiencing thirst you are already dehydrated. The tired and draining feeling that creeps up on you may also be a sign of dehydration. A few other signs of dehydration include;  dry sticky mouth (which means chapped lips) light-headedness, dry skin and more.

Here is one of my favorites!

Citrus Blackberry Cooler

  • 1/4  frozen blackberries
  • 2 slices  lemon
  • 4 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Agave (optional. You may substitute with your favorite low calorie sweetener)
  • Crushed Ice
  • 6 ounces (or more) club soda or sparking water

Muddle berries with lemon, fresh mint and agave. Add crushed ice. Add sparkling water . Have fun and ENJOY!
