Since most of us don’t have the time or money to go to Starbucks every day, it’s time to learn some DIY fruity drink recipes we can make right in our homes!  There’s nothing better than hitting up the pool with some refreshing drinks at hand.  Here are 3 drink recipes that are healthy, hydrating, and delicious!

  • Watermelon Agua Fresca.Chelsea Crockett - Fruity Drink  For this recipe, you’ll need 3 cups of cubed watermelon, ¼ cup of lime juice, 4 mint leaves, 2 cups of water, and ice!  Add all of the ingredients except the mint leaves in a blender and mix them together until it is well blended.  Refrigerate the mixture for a few hours if you want it to be cooler, or else simply add a few mint leaves and ice cubes and enjoy!
  • Fizzy Pineapple Punch.  For this delicious punch, you’ll need a 6 oz. can of limeade, a 12 oz. can of pineapple juice, 4 ½ cups of cold water, 1 liter of club soda, assorted fruits, and mint leaves.  In a large pitcher, mix together the juices, water, and club soda.  Put the fruits and ice cubes in different glasses and pour the punch in.  Finish it off with some mint leaves for decoration like the picture on the right! 🙂
  • Lemon Pineapple Kiwi Sparkling Mocktail.  You’ll need 1 kiwi, 3 teaspoons of pineapple juice, 1 teaspoon of honey, and 1 can of La Croix sparkling lemon water.  Blend together the unpeeled kiwi, pineapple juice, and honey.  Split the mixture into glasses and fill the rest the glass the rest of the way with the sparkling water.  And lastly, enjoy!

Which one are you going to try out?  I’ve tried all three and they’re so, so good! 🙂

Some days, I like to get into a health kick… and with breakfast being the most important meal of the day, what better way to start it off with a good, nutritious breakfast? I recently found a simple little meal that provides both vitamins and a delicious tasteJ! It also doesn’t take up a lot of time in the mornings and is perfect if you are on the go!

If you’re a fruit lover, then you will LOVE these breakfast parfaits. You can make them almost any way you want! First, you need to pick out ingredients that you or your family likes best. For example, I love bananas so that would definitely be one of my first choices! The list you need is short and simple: yogurt, granola, and whatever fruit you prefer. I suggest buying around three different types of fruit and yogurt to mix it up a little!Chelsea Crockett - Breakfast Parfait

Grab a couple of small glasses and fill it half way with whatever kind of yogurt you prefer. Then top it with some granola and the fruit to go with it! Take the one on the right for example. This person put vanilla yogurt, granola, some berries on top! It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it!

So next time you wake up craving something delicious and nutritious, try whipping up your own fruity breakfast parfait, whatever way you like it!

Love, Chels

How does strawberry-orange sorbet sound? Sounds like a summer treat, am I right? Well, I thought I would give you the recipe to this sweet treat in hopes that it would get you excited for warmer weather! Check it out!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced images
  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 cup sugar

In a sauce pan, add the sugar, orange juice and water and bring it to a boil. Let the mixture boil until sugar dissolves (about 3 minutes).  Add the strawberries and the orange zest and let the mixture boil for 8 to 10 minutes. Using a blender, puree the mixture and then pass the it through a fine mesh strainer. Let it come to room temperature and place in the refrigerator to chill. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how to freeze it. Voila! You have a tasty treat to put you in the mood for spring.

Tropical Summer Drinks

Imagine lying by the pool with a drink in your hand and the sound of ocean waves crashing against the rocks.  Sounds nice, huh?  Well just because you might not have a beach, doesn’t mean you can’t pretend you’re on one!  Try whipping up a few of these fruity concoctions to get your summer going, virgin of course.

Grenadine syrup, a red tinted sweetener, and plenty of flavored juices are essential for the perfect drink!  If you love Fruit Loops, then I’ve got the perfect drink for you!  Mix together 3 ounces of pineapple juice, 2 ounces of orange juice, and one ounce of cranberry juice.  Throw in ½ ounce of grenadine syrup to the mix.  Last, drop in a few cherries and some ice cubes and you’ve got yourself the perfect fruity drink!

If icy drinks are more your style, try a strawberry daiquiri-pina colada mix!  You’ll need to blend each drink separately for starters.  Begin by blending together 1 cup of pineapple chunks, ¼ cup ofChelsea Crockett- pina colada strawberry daiquiri ice, 1 cup of unsweetened pineapple juice, and 1 cup of coconut milk.  In a separate blender (or you can pour the colada mix into a separate cup and clean your blender) blend together 1 cup of strawberries, ¼ cup of ice, ¾ cup of lemon-lime soda, ¼ cup of sugar, and one tbsp. of lemon juice.  Once finished, swirl the drinks together for a twist on two classic recipes!

I hope you enjoy these drinks as much as I did.  While you’re enjoying them, close your eyes and imagine the beach!  Happy summer Insiders!

XOXO,

Chelsea
