Look at us, making our way through the New Year. We are 2 weeks into 2018, can you believe it? Now, I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions, as I usually stick to my same basic principles: stay active, eat more veggies, and keep hydrated. (I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS feel better when these three items are in balance.) Don’t get me wrong, this is much easier said than done, especially this time of year when the lack of sunlight and cold temperatures make working out nearly impossible. Not to mention, the cold temperatures and dry air seem to make staying hydrated a pipe dream.
Behold my solution to the winter woes; Sparkling Pomegranate Green Tea. This light and refreshing mocktail beverage gives you the pick-me-up we all desperately need right now. Packed with antioxidants to get you through the cold season and a kick of caffeine, this Sparkling Pomegranate Green Tea is my new go-to.
I found this to be the ideal solution to get me through the holiday entertaining season. For those mammas and soon-to-be moms out there, you know the struggles of staying festive (aka awake) past 9 PM. This was key as I made my way to the third trimester of pregnancy. It was the perfect light and refreshing mocktail to keep me awake and in the holiday spirit.
I like to brew 2 cups of double strength green tea in advance. This makes 4 standard mocktail servings. However, these days I have been doubling the recipe and sipping on this stuff all. day. long. Not only does this help me stay hydrated, but I also love all the antioxidants that are packed into green tea and especially pomegranate juice. POM Wonderful 100% Juice is powered by antioxidants. The pomegranate is whole-pressed, meaning a unique blend of polyphenol antioxidants from two whole pomegranates – include its fruit, pith and rind – is found in each 8 oz bottle.
Join me in staying hydrated while fighting off the cold season with this antioxidant-packed Sparkling Pomegranate Green Tea!
