A sweet treat – without the sugar We can’t help it – sometimes nothing will do on a hot day but a cold sweet drink. But if you’ve cut sugar from your diet, there are not a lot of options out there for a sugar-free beverage – unless you reach for one of the fruity drinks, teas and coffees in the Food for Health by Xndo range. They are among some of the healthiest completely sugar-free drinks there around – what’s more, they are developed to be loaded with additional benefits. The Grape and Mango flavoured Carb Blocker drinks for example, contain potent extracts of white kidney bean and inulin that work together to limit the absorption of sugar and improve feelings of satiety. They also contain absolutely no sugar – compared with many other laden beverages in the market. So this festive season, reach for the carb-blocker drinks for a sip that also combats weight gain. Fizzy carb-blocker punch INGREDIENTS 1 sachet Grape and Mango carb-blocker drink ½ cup soda water (adjust amount to your personal preference) Frozen mango cubes or halved grapes (as a garnish and an alternative to ice cubes) DIRECTIONS Dissolve the sachet of carb-blocker drink in soda water. Pour into a glass with the frozen fruit. Enjoy! Fruit-tea refresher INGREDIENTS 1 sachet Rosehip Hibiscus or Pineapple Passion fruit tea drink ½ cup soda water (adjust amount to your personal preference) Lemon, orange, strawberry and pineapple slices (or any fruit of your choice) DIRECTIONS Dissolve the sachet of fruit tea in room temperature water. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze till well set. Pour soda water into a glass and top with fruit tea ice cubes for a subtle flavour boost.
