I used to love vitamin water, but I had an incident where someone slipped drugs into mine and it left me unable to stand the taste of it. Years before that even happened my husband, a die-hard sports nut, told me that under NCAA guidelines vitamin waters contained banned substances and that college athletes were being told they couldn't drink it.
These banned substances included taurine, L-theanine, green-tea extract and glucosamine. Withing a week of the link I provided you above vitamin water was given the green light. Hmmmmmm.
After dealing with the intense thirst that accompanies gestational diabetes I decided to try my hand at making my own.
For starters I chose to only make two.
One contained frozen pineapple and mango chunks along with some fresh mint.
The resulting concoction was okay but not what I was hoping for. We did however find that the drink tasted even better later in the day than in the beginning.
Still very interested a few days later I made a couple more.
I'm going to have to try this again with fresh fruit.
