If your child is like mine, part of the fun of New Year's Eve is staying up until midnight and then toasting the New Year with something bubbly. However, the last thing you want to give your child at midnight is a drink that's loaded with sugar or caffeine! Read on to learn how to make 3 bubbly drinks for kids that will make the toast extra special, and healthy too!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
- selection of your favorite seasonal organic fruit
- sparkling water
- selection of your favorite organic juices (optional)
- fresh mint (optional)
Step 2: Blend Your Fruit
When choosing what types of fizzy drinks to make, I based my decisions on the fruits and juices that we already had on hand. However, you can use any selection of your favorite fruits and juices. Then, I added a small scoop of the fruit with a couple of tablespoons of juice and blended until the fruit/juice mixture was as thick as a puree.
Step 3: Slice Your Fruit
I added a small scoop of fresh fruit to the bottom of each mason jar before adding the juice/fruit mixture. I used seasonal fruit including strawberries and pomegranates as well as some frozen fruit that we had in the freezer.
