  • The fresh fruits and herbs will keep you feeling fresh and energized, which is beneficial on those scorching hot days.

Healthy Alternatives For Sweet-tooth

If you are on a weight loss journey, sugary drinks won’t help. Substitute sugar for low-calorie sugars like stevia or keto sugars such as monkfruit sweetener, swerve, or erythritol. These options can satisfy your sweet tooth without the adverse health effects of regular sugar.

  • Go for bananas, agave, and honey to sweeten things up. I love the idea of adding a drizzle of honey to my smoothie. This not only helps with the taste but also gives me a boost of energy. Learn more about that here. (healthline.com)
