Our bodies need water to stay healthy and refreshed, especially when it’s hot outside. Instead of counting how many glasses of water you drink, focus on keeping hydrated with tasty beverages. Water-rich fruits like melons, berries, and citrus can help keep you hydrated, but when you need something quick, drinks are great, too.

Before you reach for a sports drink, consider the added sugar – the same thing for your favorite creamy iced espresso drink.

Of course, there’s water. If you’re one of the many millions of people who find the taste of water boring, you may be hydrating with sweet drinks. If you need to quench your thirst after a workout or a meal, try one of these beverages that aren’t sugar bombs:

Unflavored coconut water. The clear liquid inside the coconut has a sweet, nutty taste and is a good source of potassium, sodium, and manganese.

Iced herbal teas. Ginger, chamomile, and hibiscus teas provide plenty of flavor and antioxidants.

Spritzes. Mix sparkling water with a splash of fruit juice for a fizzy and fruity treat.

Flavored water. Fill a carafe with slices of fruit like citrus or berries, along with herbs like rosemary, mint, or basil, and water for an elevated refreshment.

Keeping these beverages on hand will make you less likely to grab a sugary drink. Plus, they taste great and keep you feeling good!
