Just because you’re Paleo doesn’t mean you have to give up those light refreshing drinks you love to chug when you’re hot…
Here’s a really easy recipe for one that’s lighter than a smoothie and full of fresh orange flavor with a little nose-tickling fizz.
I had some huge navel oranges in the fridge just waiting to be used. They were super ripe and juicy. So I decided to see if I could use them to make a fun little summer drink.
I started with fresh-squeezed juice from the oranges. Next I added some unflavored seltzer water, a spoonful of vanilla extract, and a little Stevia sweetener – and viola! The paleo orangesicle fizz was born! Simple as that…and bonus, it really does taste like an orange creamsicle! [av_sidebar widget_area=’Lockerdome’ av_uid=’av-2r8g4q’]
If your not paleo, you may not appreciate how nice it is to have a refreshing drink other than plain old H2O. Or a cocktail for that matter (but that’s for another post!)
So when your craving a real thirst quencher, whip up this refreshing little number!
It’s guaranteed to cool you off and it’s a light summer drink the whole family will love!
Bottoms up! :)
- 1 cup orange juice, fresh-squeezed
- 1 cup seltzer water
- 1 to 1-1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Stevia sweetener, to taste
- Just stir everything together and enjoy!
I love refreshing drinks, such as lemonade or this one, for summertime!
Great idea thanks!
Yay! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Maple syrup is a great option! :)
Thank you sooooo much! My hubby has been asking and asking for a treat type drink he can have on the weekends. We had the necessary ingredients so I just made it for him and he LOVES IT! I did use 1 tbsp maple syrup instead of Stevie though.
