Spring is officially here and I’m six weeks postpartum and really ready to start working out again, watching what I eat, and losing the extra baby weight I still need to get off–all while being outside and enjoying this weather! I tend to have a lot of vices when it comes to sweets, so I’ve been working to find ways still enjoy sweeter food and drinks without all the added calories. And given that it’s grilling season, we look forward to sitting out on our deck more, drinking some beverages and enjoying the warm weather! But since I’m a breastfeeding momma and I’m trying to lose weight I really wanted to dumb it down a bit and come up with something that makes me think spring without all the added calories and without the alcohol! So I came up with this 7UP Ten Caribbean Cooler Mocktail Recipe and it’s SO tasty!
I picked up a bottle of 7UP TEN at Walmart because it still has the full flavor of 7UP, but with only TEN calories! So I can still enjoy my soda, but with less guilt!
So for this recipe here’s what you need:
7UP Ten soda
I started by adding about half a cup of crushed ice to my pretty green mason jar (doesn’t everything taste better in a gorgeous colored mason jar with a pretty straw!?). From there I filled up half the glass with 7UP Ten, then I added 1 part lemonade and one part orange juice until it was filled to the top. Finally add a cherry and use a “dash” of the cherry juice to your cocktail and enjoy!
The drink turns out really pretty and it’s a perfect blend of fruity with the carbonation that the 7UP TEN provides! I can’t wait to sit back on my deck this spring, enjoy my Caribbean Cooler mocktail and grill out with my family!
The nice thing is that if 7UP isn’t your thing, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group makes Four Core TEN products including Sunkist Ten, 7UP Ten, A&W Ten, and Canada Dry Ten! So you can still enjoy those great Creamsicle and Rootbeer Floats this summer with only TEN calories from the soda!
