Perk Up Your Summer Beverages — IC Style!

July 26, 2012

– Whip up a blueberry, watermelon or pear slush in the blender using fresh or frozen fruit and ice.

– Ice chamomile or mint tea with a touch of honey or sugar.

– Freeze fresh, whole or mashed IC friendly fruits with a bit of the juice in an ice cube tray to use for flavoring water or allowed ice tea (try blueberry, pear, watermelon or raspberry).

– Infuse water or allowed juices like blueberry with fresh herbs such as rosemary, basil, lavender or mint for a new twist.

– “Try It” list citrus peel may be a tolerated treat – freezing them first or in ice cubes keeps them handy and fresh for water, juice or ice cucumber watertea drinks.

– Spas are famous for water enhanced beverages with sliced crisp cucumber or sprigs of parsley, mint or thyme. Toss it in and have your own famous drink!

– If pressed for time, Hint Essence brand water in pear, melon or raspberry; Metro Mint Water and Zico Pure Coconut Water in Natrual (avoid the additional flavorings) are well tolerated by most with IC.

    I’ve been drinking the Hint Essence brand water like it’s going out of style – the pear is great, but I also love the cucumber flavor!
