Check out these five non-alcoholic beverage recipes that include healthy twists.

Whether you’re sober curious or changing habits due to a pregnancy, there are many circumstances that may lead you to forgo alcoholic beverages. And while water is the healthiest beverage of all, at times you might be craving something with a little more flare and flavor.

Skip sugary sodas and juices and instead opt for one of these five mocktail recipes – free of alcohol and infused with a healthy twist.

1. Green Jasmine-Mint Iced Tea with Lemon

Combining chilled green jasmine tea, lemon and mint, this simple recipe is nothing short of delicious. This recipe swaps out alcohol with delicious and nutritious green tea, which is filled with extra health benefits. The tea needs to be prepared and chilled prior to making the mocktail, but the end result is well worth the wait. This is an excellent option for those who prefer a non-carbonated beverage.

2. Winter “Sangria”

This delicious recipe perfectly combines the festive holiday flavors of a winter sangria, but without the alcohol. Not to mention, this recipe is filled with fresh fruit to add an extra nutritious boost. Soak pear juice, fruit, and spices overnight, and top with sparkling water before serving for a fizzy, festive fruit-filled beverage. Even though the name of this drink says “winter”, it can truly be enjoyed any time of the year!

3. Elderberry Fizz

Elderberry is filled with nutrients and has long been used as a healthy supplement, making this sparkling mocktail the perfect winter drink. Simply combine elderberry syrup (or juice), sparkling water or fruit juice, lime juice and viola – a simple, sweet and sophisticated beverage that’s just as pretty as it is delicious.

4. Blueberry Ginger “Bellini”

Blueberries are nutrient dense and antioxidant rich, providing the perfect healthy base for this mocktail. Combining minced ginger and mashed blueberries for a sweet and spicy puree, this beverage has a unique flavor that’s sure to satisfy taste buds. Cut down on extra sugar by skipping the added tablespoon of sugar or substituting sparkling water for sparkling apple juice.

5. Cranberry Spice Tea

This versatile drink can be served warm or chilled, and can even be prepared in the slow cooker, making it a perfect non-alcoholic option for parties and get togethers. It also utilizes cranberries and the fruit’s many health benefits, along with other flavors and spices such as cinnamon, lemon, and black tea.
