Diabetes Drink - 3 Sugar Free Drink Solutions

 

Don't you just hate it when you ask for a sugar free drink in a pub or restaurant and all they've got to offer is diet cola or water?  

 

Or you're offered a pure fruit juice - "Well, that's sugar free - isn't it?"  No it isn't - the sugar that occurs naturally in fruit juice is very high and that will play havoc with your blood sugar levels.  But here are a few drinks you might like to try...

 

I got so fed up of the standard cola offer, I decided to experiment with mixing the different sugar free drinks that are available and you might like to try these alternatives to 'just cola'.

 

1) The first experiment I tried was to mix a diet cola and diet tonic water in the same glass.  Then I added ice and lemon.  The mixture gives a slightly sharper taste and it makes a very long and refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day.

 

2) Then I tried splitting a pure orange fruit juice (you could also try pineapple or tomato juice) with a friend and added sparkling water to my half of the juice.  You could also try mixing your juice with diet tonic water.

 

3) If you want to make a refreshing drink at home, this pineapple slushy will hit your dry spot:

 

Take 1 can sugar-free ginger ale, add 1/4 cup of unsweetened pineapple juice and ice cubes.  

 

Place in a blender and blend until the ice-cubes are crushed and you get a slushy mixture.  

 

Why not experiment with other unsweetened fruit juices?  And, if you want a little bit more of a kick, you could add rum extract to give it more flavor.

 

If you have any more ideas or recipes for sugar-free drink I would really love to hear about them.
