Non-alcoholic Pomegranate Spritzer + COCOZIA product review
If you’re looking for a refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage to ring in the new year, you may want to try this one! It’s not very sweet at all, but you could add some maple syrup or agave if you prefer a sweeter drink. I happen to love it just the way it is.
I used a high-grade pomegranate juice concentrate in this recipe. It’s the best that I have found. I use this concentrate in my morning smoothies, too. Pomegranates have such amazing health benefits. It’s a good idea to include them in your diet!
“Compounds found only in pomegranates called punicalagins are shown to benefit the heart and blood vessels. Punicalagins are the major component responsible for pomegranate’s antioxidant and health benefits. They not only lower cholesterol, but also lower blood pressure and increase the speed at which heart blockages (atherosclerosis) melt away.” Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
I was fortunate enough to come across a wonderful coconut water, called COCOZIA, which I have also used in this recipe. It’s so fresh tasting—just like the water that you find when you open a fresh coconut! This brand of coconut water is not as sweet as many others I have tried and is a wonderful thirst quencher. Coconut water is well-known for its perfect balance of magnesium and potassium as well as its abundant electrolytes.
- 1 cup naturally sparkling mineral water
- ¼ cup COCOZIA coconut water (or other good quality, unsweetened coconut water)
