There are so many on the market, though, that it can be extremely tough to navigate which drinks actually have benefits that make them “worth it” and which to avoid due to not only the unhealthy effects but the price tag, too.
We have rounded up some sure-fire healthy drinks that we love that are convenient, tasty, and a healthy addition to your daily diet. Check them out below.
Healthy Drinks to Enhance Your Workouts and Nutrition
Celestial Seasonings Kombucha
These drinks typically retail for around $3-$4 each at stores like Whole Foods, but they are worth the price. Not only do they taste great, but they are made by combining organic tea, natural sugars, and symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). But what does this mean?
Well, it means that this drink is full of probiotics that help keep you healthy and aid in digestion, B vitamins, and acetic acid – which is known to stabilize blood glucose levels and boost satiety. This drink should be kept in the fridge since it is unpasteurized, and it should be consumed within a few days of purchase.
Hint or Hint Fizz
This is a zero calorie water substitute that will leave your thirst quenched, your body hydrated, and you satisfied. Not only does this drink help you to drink more water, but it can satisfy the craving for something carbonated without having you reach for something unhealthy like soda.
With a variety of flavors like berry, watermelon, and strawberry-kiwi, there’s something for everyone!
Siggi’s Probiotic Drinkable Non-Fat Yogurt
Calling all yogurt lovers! This is a great drink to slug down in the morning as it has five grams of protein, 20% of your recommended intake of calcium and a great deal of Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotic cultures – 10 billion, to be exact!
These are also made with milk from grass-fed cows, so it is a healthy way to get your dose of dairy and glean the energy necessary to start your day!
Harmless Harvest Coconut Water
Coconut water is considered “trendy” but it’s more than a pop culture phenomenon. It actually has a host of health benefits that make it worth the sips.
This brand is USDA certified organic and BPA free, making it a great choice. Coconut water is not only hydrating – it also contains magnesium, potassium, and antioxidants that help keep our body health and free of dangerous damage caused by free radicals. Basically, it’s like water, but with added benefits! Can’t go wrong with that!
