Healthy Drinks Recipes

East Well to Age Well

This is where you can contribute and find healthy drinks recipes.

A lot of the sugar and fat which people consume comes in the form of beverages and this is one area where we can dramatically improve our health and our success in losing weight.

This page, where you can contribute your recipes and benefit from the contributions of other members of the age-well.org community, won't be many recipes at first, but keep contributing and soon there will be a nice collection for all to share.

I've added a couple below from the Eating Well Website to get us going.

Here are some healthy drinks recipes which are from the Eating well website. The healthy drinks you contribute here don't have to be alcoholic drinks, in fact I encourage readers to post non-alcoholic beverages which are in any way better for us.



Blueberry (Superfood) Bellini

Muddling is is a traditional bartending technique where herbs and/or fruit are crushed, releasing their full flavor into a cocktail. Here we muddle blueberries and ginger with sugar and lemon to add another dimension to our take on a bellini.

INGREDIENTS1/2 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 spoon sugar (spoon size depends on taste - but smaller is healthier)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 cups blueberry juice
1/2 cup sparkling wine, divided
PREPARATIONMash blueberries with ginger, sugar and lemon juice. Add blueberry juice and let steep for at least 5 minutes. Strain; divide among 4 champagne flutes. Top each with 1/2 cup sparkling wine.NUTRITIONPer cocktail: 185 calories; 0 g fat (0 g sat, 0 g mono); 0 mg cholesterol; 25 g carbohydrates; 1 g protein; 0 g fiber; 23 mg sodium; 25 mg potassium.

Campari, Grapefruit and Pomegranite Coctail

Balance herbaceous Campari with the sweet-tart flavors of pomegranate and grapefruit. This dusty pink drink looks festive in a stemmed wineglass with a twist of orange zest. For a slightly sweeter drink, use orange juice instead of grapefruit. Remember healthy drinks recipes can be non-alcoholic too. To make a nonalcoholic version, omit the Campari and add an extra 1/3 cup of each juice.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Enjoyment Time: Long as you like- take your time

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups grapefruit or orange juice
1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
1 1/2 cups ice cubes, plus more for serving

PREPARATIONCombine grapefruit (or orange) juice, pomegranate juice and ice cubes in a blender.

Blend until the ice is very finely chopped and the mixture is foamy and pale pink.
