*Disclosure: I have partnered with DASANI to bring you this recipe. I have been compensated for this post either monetarily or with product. All opinions are truthful & my own.
A couple years ago we made the move to relocate the family to North Idaho. You see – the hubs & I are both So Cal natives. I lived there my entire life there until I met him. He was born there & then lived most of his life in Tahoe before we met. Then we had 12 long years in the desert of Nevada before being given the opportunity to live in this incredible place we do now. Why am I telling you this? Well – because after all those years living with summers that lasted 8-10 months – hydration became key. Finding new & creative ways to enjoy water & hydrating beverages was a way of life. It definitely stuck with me even though we have true seasons here. I still look for tasty ways to nourish & this Sparkling Black Cherry Limeade is probably the best tasting & easiest bevies I have made thus far.
I started with these great flavors from DASANI.
Did you know they have sparkling waters in flavors like lime, berry & lemon? Lightly carbonated, unsweetened & ZERO calories!
Then there are the YUMMY flavor enhancing drops!!!
I can keep them in my purse & use them in my regular bottled water while we are out running errands or at the gym.
The family loves using them to come up with their own great flavor combos to keep hydrating fun!
When you can add a little flavor to the water & still keep it light & refreshing – they are more likely to drink more.
Cherry limeade is my “go-to” favorite beverage flavor. So knowing that I can create this so simply when I’m craving that flavor just makes me happy. When I’m looking for hydration I don’t want anything heavy or overly sweet. This definitely makes it easy to drink, drink, drink.
I learned that drinking from a large cup (like the reusable cups with a lid & straw) are the easiest for me to keep track of how much fluid I’m taking in each day. I try to have at least a 24 ounce cup – the larger it is the more likely I am to keep drinking. Something about coming to the bottom of the cup signals in my head that I’m done. So if it takes longer to empty the cup – the longer I will drink before taking a break for a couple hours.
