How To Build A Healthy Mocktail
by Toby Amidor in Healthy Holidays, December 6, 2013
Build a healthy mocktail using these simple guidelines, and let everyone join in on the holiday cheer.
Even minus the alcohol, virgin drinks can get heavy on calories and sugar, so it’s important to choose ingredients wisely.
Juice: Most mocktails are made with juice, which sets the flavor tone. Whether you choose apple, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, grape or cranberry (or make a combo, like cranberry and orange), use 100% fruit juice. (In case you’re wondering: As a general rule of thumb, ½ cup of 100% juice has about 60 calories.)
