Soda Replacements and Alternatives

Wondering what can I drink instead of soda? Check out these replacements for soda.

Fruit Infused Water Soda Replacement

 Infused waters have become popular in the last few years.  You can go the easy route of simply adding fruit and herbs to a pitcher of water, or use a specialty infusion pitcher or water bottle.  Both methods provide bright flavors that make drinking water easier. This is easily my favorite soda replacement drink.

Prodyne Fruit Infusion Flavor Pitcher

Great fruit infused water combinations:

  • Cucumber and mint
  • Citrus blend of lemon, lime and orange
  • Strawberry and mint
  • Lemon and blueberry
  • Strawberry and kiwi
  • Blueberry and kiwi
  • Peach and mint
  • Raspberry and peach

Fruit Infused Tea as a soda pop alternative

Sweet tea can be nearly as bad on calories as soda, but tea in itself has great health benefits.  Use green tea and mashed fruits instead of sugar to create a bright and refreshing beverage that doesn’t contain added sugars or chemicals.

Savvy Infusion Water Bottle

Great fruit infused tea combinations:

  • Green tea and citrus
  • Black tea and lemon
  • Tea with raspberry
  • Green tea and peaches

Flavored Coffee

If you are trying to kick your caffeine habit as well, choose decaffeinated coffee, but coffee can offer great options of flavor to replace your soda.  Use sugar substitutes like honey or stevia and limit your cream to fat free milk instead.

Dunkin’ Donuts Cinnamon Roll Bakery Series Ground Coffee

Great flavored coffee additions:

  • Coconut oil
  • Fat free milk
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Cinnamon
  • Stevia
  • Organic Raw Honey
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder mixed with a sugar substitute
  • Mint extract
  • Vanilla extract
  • Almond extract

Consciously choosing to drink things that are lower in calories can easily eliminate thousands of calories per week from your diet in no time.  Your body will also feel much better once you start giving it more water.  Focus on quenching your thirst with natural flavors instead of things that are high in sugar content and replacing old, unhealthy habits with new good habits.

Water is certainly key to hydration, and our member companies provide many bottled water options to help people meet their hydration needs. With that said, soft drinks and other sugar sweetened beverages have been deemed safe by the body of science and can be incorporated into a balanced lifestyle.

To this end, America’s beverage companies launched the Balance Calories Initiative, which aims to reduce sugar and calories consumed from beverages across America. We are providing people with a variety of beverage options, information and encouragement to help them reduce calories and sugar they get from their beverages. We also support clear and understandable nutrition facts about foods and beverages and have voluntarily placed clear calorie labels on the front of the bottles and cans we produce.

I love the idea of fruit infused water. My favorite is adding freshly cut limes. You’ve go some great selections here. I love fresh fruit and believe in healthy eating/drinking too.
