I know that drinking water is good for me but I am so accustomed to flavored drinks and diet pops that it has always been hard for me to drink regular tap water or bottled water. This is why I was excited about the chance to become an Aquafina Mom and to participate in communicating about the Aquafina FlavorSplash “Flavor Your Day” Program. I love it because I can drink something that is good for me but that also has some flavor!
So far, I have received sample packs of the Wild Berry and the Lemon flavored waters. Usually, I prefer berry flavored drinks and usually do not care for most lemon-flavored waters. I often find that they lack the right lemony taste. However, I actually prefer the lemon of the two that I have tried to far.
Are you creative? You could also use the lemon flavored water to blend a slushy or smoothie. Below is a recipe for a “Sunshine Lemon Smoothie” from mealsmatter.org. You could substite the lemon FlavorSplasy for the powdered lemonade mix:
2 cups Skim milk
2 cups Lowfat lemon yogurt
1/2 cup Ice
3 tablespoons Powdered lemonade mix
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Serve in a tall glass and garnish with lemon wedge or zest if desired.
