Love Your Water?

Have you seen the new Crystal Light commercial–“Love your water”?

Just in case you didn’t like your water just the way it is, and want to “love it again”, you can now add:
Crystal Light Pink Lemonade:
Ingredients: CITRIC ACID, POTASSIUM CITRATE, MALTODEXTRIN, ASPARTAME*, MAGNESIUM OXIDE, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF NATURAL FLAVOR, ACESULFAME POTASSIUM, SOY LECITHIN, ARTIFICIAL COLOR, RED 40. CONTAINS: SOY. *PHENYLKETONURICS: CONTAINS PHENYLALANINE.

Mmm…doesn’t that sound delicious and good for you??  Like water, only better?

Seriously, if it has any added ingredients  (natural or otherwise)….it isn’t water any more!!  It is coffee or tea or…Come on Crystal Light (which is part of Kraft Foods) is this trickery really necessary?…for shame. for shame.

~here is a great summer drink option–kids love it too, and you can use just about any fruit that your family enjoys!  Refreshing and good for you!

Strawberry Agua Fresca
6 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
4 cups cold water
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 up honey

In a blender combine half of the strawberries and half of the water.  Cover and blend well.  Strain mixture into a pitcher.  Discard solids.  Repeat with remaining strawberries and water.
Stir in lime juice and 1/4 up honey.  Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.
