I don't buy vitamin water. Most brands are loaded with sugar and other ingredients I don't feel I need to consume, not to mention that that the vitamins in these many brands aren't even usable in our bodies. Can you say waste of money??
I'm a huge fan of Wellesse Liquid vitamins. For starters they are certified gluten free- then throw in that the majority of their products are also dairy free and sweetened with stevia. They are perfect for me. Their multivitamin is even free of iodine which is AMAZING since I need to be cautious of iodine having hashimotos disease. (and for anyone out there with hashi's you know how hard it can be to find a multivitamin without iodine!)
I throw the vitamins into smoothies, but most recently have started using them to make my own quick vitamin water. It takes two seconds to make. This drink is a great way to get your kids to take their vitamins- tell them its lemonade and they will be thrilled!
Homemade Vitamin Water
- 8 oz water
- 1-2 Tbs Lemon Juice
- I serving of Wellesse Liquid Vitamin of Choice (My favorites are the Multivitamin & Vitamin D)
- Nunaturals Liquid Stevia (a few drops) to taste.
Mix together and enjoy! Serve over ice, or pour it into a water bottle to go.
