BEAT THE SUMMER HEAT WITH THESE FUN AND FRUITY VIRGIN DRINKS
With the summer heating up I couldn’t help but thinking about all the pregnant ladies dying of thirst! There’s no reason pregnant women should have to miss out on the fun of drinking a yummy non-alcoholic beverage in a fancy glass during happy hour, at a dinner party, or at a summer BBQ. Am I right? Although these alcohol-free alternatives aren’t quite as fun as their alcoholic counter-parts, they are equally as delicious and provide an exciting alternative to water or my go-to: soda water and cranberry juice, which gets boring after a while.
In addition to a healthy diet rich in a few key nutrients, pregnant women need to stay hydrated and stay sane! Being pregnant is exhausting. So let loose and have some fun with these delicious, hydrating and yummy frozen “mocktails”.
