OK, so I love the Vitamin Water 10 and the Sobe Lifewater drinks that are fruity and delicious and all natural. It's nice to know that when I'm out and about there are options besides paying for water or drinking soda! However, I only drink them occasionally because
1) water really is better for me
2) the drinks cost BIG MONEY
Since we got back from Colorado, our tap water has been tasting weird to me. Or maybe it's the dishwasher leaving strange odors in our cups. At any rate, I experimented, and here's what I came up with for an at-home treat.
2 cups 100% juice (I have used only the Juicy Juice so far - more exotic flavor blends, ha ha)
6 cups water
4-5 packets Stevia in the Raw (and if you haven't tried stevia as a natural sugar substitute, you need to!)
Mix well (I use my brand new QuickStir pitcher from Pampered Chef, wahoo!) and chill. Add juice or stevia until the blend is right for you. It's no Sobe, but it's flavorful and a nice, healthier alternative beverage. Of course, water is always the very best option.
