I drank Vitamin Water all through my pregnancy. It’s delicious. Then I figured out how much sugar I was consuming and stopped. Now I drink Bai 5, which is sweetened with Stevia. I get bored, though, so I’m always looking for other things to drink. (I drink more than Bai 5, but I think you get my meaning.)

When I ran across this recipe, I was thrilled. Another drink that tastes yummy and is still healthy!

This recipe can be altered to your own family’s tastes. I’d call this more of a guideline than an absolute list of ingredients.
