After doing research on High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), I found that crystalline fructose is just the dried version of HFCS. So when I was drinking my vitamin waters I was getting 100% fructose, which is why I felt lousy all the time. While I liked the flavor of these beverages, I knew I could make my own version and still have it taste good, and be filled with vitamins instead of synthetic look-a-likes.
I started making this for my 32 ounce water bottle, it includes the juice of one lemon, alkaline water, 1/4 teaspoon liquid cinnamon bark, 1 mL B-complex vitamins, and a packet of stevia. I shook it up and drink it throughout the day for a nice pick-me-up. I have played around with other flavors but really like this one the best.
Drinking this water will give you a better attitude because it has vitamins and nutrients, plus the cinnamon is great for curbing sugar cravings.
Vitamin Water with Attitude
- 32 ounces alkaline or filtered water
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1/4 teaspoon liquid cinnamon bark
- 1 mL sublingual vitamin B complex
- 1 packet stevia sweetener
Shake it all together. store in fridge until ready to drink.
Variations: Use other fruit in place of the lemon like: pureed plum, kiwi, mango, melon, berries, oranges, even banana works. Adding extra powdered vitamin C, a liquid mineral complex, and even a cap full of liquid vitamins (although the flavor may need adjusting.
Don’t be fooled by impostors that sell vitamins in a water filled with chemicals, HFCS and food coloring.
