Remedy: Drinks to Keep You Healthy & Hydrated This Summer


Remedy: Drinks to Keep You Healthy & Hydrated This Summer


Summer is in the air, and there’s nothing like enjoying the beautiful weather with a cold drink in hand. That’s why we rounded up 10 of our favorite healthy, refreshing drink recipes that you’ll want to make all season long. From skin-healthy sips to anti-inflammatory beverages, these drinks are delicious, nutrient-packed and surprisingly easy to make. The best part? Each of these recipes have four- and five-star ratings, so we know you will find your new favorite drink, whether it’s our Cucumber Mint Spritzer or our Iced Matcha Latte.

1. Best For Hydration

In just 5 minutes, you can stir up a cool summer sip, like this Watermelon-Basil Agua Fresca. This refreshing mocktail features hydrating ingredients like watermelon, which is perfect for the blazing heat. And lime and basil add a vibrant flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

2. Best For Skin Protection

Did you know that probiotics are one of the top nutrients for better skin health? Not only can they help hydrate your skin, but they can help reduce pesky inflammation from skin redness caused by conditions like psoriasis, acne and rosacea. For those with sensitive skin, including probiotics in your diet can be especially important during the summer months, so a refreshing drink like this Berry-Kefir Smoothie will help you get your fix.

3.Best Mocktail

Alcohol can be included within a healthy eating pattern when enjoyed in moderation, but for those that are sober or are trying to cut back their intake, we’re loving this highly-rated nonalcoholic Cucumber-Mint Spritzer. This drink is equally easy, refreshing and gorgeous, making it a perfect sip to impress guests. Take a glass of this 4-ingredient mocktail by the pool for an ideal summer day.

4. Best For Inflammation

Stay hydrated and help keep inflammation at bay with these Ginger-Turmeric-Carrot Shots. Thanks to the compounds gingerol in ginger and curcumin in turmeric, this drink recipe boasts impressive anti-inflammatory properties. These ingredients can help relieve temporary inflammation from a short-term illness or chronic inflammation from conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), so make a batch ahead of time and freeze so you can feel your best all summer long.

5. Best For Energy

For an energy boost, try our Iced Matcha Latte. Matcha does contain caffeine, which can keep you energized and focused throughout the day. And while all milks and milk alternatives have their own benefits, using cow’s milk in this latte will keep you hydrated and more satisfied with its protein content.

6. Sleepy Girl Mocktail

 CHRISTINA DALEY

The “Sleepy Girl Mocktail” wasn’t just a trend! Our version—AKA this Tart Cherry Nighttime Mocktail—is packed with antioxidants like polyphenols from the tart cherry juice, which can help you sleep better. Plus, it’s ice cold and tasty, so we won’t be surprised if it becomes your evening ritual on these long summer nights.
