I know I need to drink water. Besides supporting your immune system, water can help you lose weight, smooth your skin (there's no easier anti-aging treatment!) even encourage your hair to grow faster.
But plain water is so BLAH, I have a hard time drinking as much as I should. That's why I was thrilled to find these two, tasty favorites. They have no calories (priority #1 in my book) and use natural flavors to make drinking water a lot more fun.
Anything but boring, Cascade Ice sparking waters combine natural fruit juices with a delightful "fizz" that'll wake up your taste buds. I love the tangy Raspberry Lemonade flavor but with 21 options ranging from Cranberry Pomegranate to Coconut Pineapple, there's plenty of room to experiment.
Besides tasting great, Cascade Ice is free of unnecessary and unhealthy "extras" found in other flavored waters like calories, sodium, gluten, sugar and caffeine. That's especially good news if you're anything like me because caffeine tends to spike my blood pressure.
I have a weakness for Diet Coke but, with a fun fizz, no calories and all the benefits of water, Cascade Ice makes a healthy alternative. And even better, there's no reason to stop at just one. ($12-$16 for a case of 12, 17.2-ounce bottles at retailers like Albertson's, HEB and Market Street)
Another winning way to perk up water's taste, Stur is an all-natural, fruit-flavored liquid that you mix with tap or your favorite bottled water. Stur has no calories or sugar. It's made with 100% vitamin C and stevia, a no-calorie, plant-based sweetener that's said to be healthier than artificial sweeteners.
I'm hooked on the light, fruity Truely Pomegranite Cranberry flavor because adding one squeeze to eight ounces water takes you into much more interesting territory. Other choices include Honestly Lemonade, Purely Orange Mango, Simply Strawberry, Freshly Fruit Punch, Proudly Tea + Lemon and unsweetened Only Mint Cucumber.
As a bonus, this affordable water pick-me-up goes a long way. Five bottles make 90, 8-ounce drinks. And trying it is a no-brainer because Stur comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee - love Stur or your money back. ($19.95 for 5, 1.4-ounce bottles at Sturdrinks.com)
