Even if you enjoy drinking alcoholic drinks in moderation, you can still make your drinks healthier! Talk about a perfect time for this Blueberry Kombucha Mojito, with summer season at full speed, why not make it a healthier patio season too! With just a few simple ingredients and using real flavours instead of pre-made drinks containing various chemicals, additives, and way too much refined sugar.
This drink can be made with or without alcohol. You can also customize this drink with whatever fruit is in season where you are.
Why should you care about the health benefits of your drinks? Well, for one reason, it’s too easy to drink bad ingredients that provide nothing good for our bodies. Also, despite not worrying about calories that we eat, we should pay attention to calories that we drink. Because it’s such a simple process to drink something instead of chewing it, many people consume an extraordinary amount of empty calories, additives, and an enormous amount of refined sugar, simply because they drink it instead of eating it. Because it’s in liquid form, our bodies absorb these even faster and can create havoc on our blood glucose levels, which can create short and long term health issues.
Be mindful of what you drink and choose high quality tasty ingredients 🙂
There are many companies that make organic alcohol now as well, so that is a great option to have and help reduce your exposure to chemicals even more.
You can watch this really cool video from Ask Men and Rise, talking about Kombucha and how delicious it can be in a mixer. Yum!!!
Oh the delicious flavours of summer!
