But first, let’s explore the essential health benefits of going sugar-free:

The Benefits of Drinking Sugar-Free Beverages

Whether you just reduce your sugar intake, or you cut out sugar completely from your diet, you will experience an array of benefits. They include:

• Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes

• Reduced risk of obesity

• Weight loss

• Reduced inflammation

• Improved cardiovascular health

• Improved liver function

• Reduced unhealthy food cravings

• Tooth decay prevention

• Younger-looking skin

• Increased energy throughout the day

• Mood swing prevention

• Improved mental health

• Improved sleep

It’s definitely challenging to eliminate sugar from your diet, especially if it plays a big part in it. But there’s a perfect solution to help you cut back on sugar and stop the cravings while still satisfying your sweet tooth. Let’s see what it is.

Drinking Sugar-Free Has Never Been Sweeter

MiraBurst miracle berry tablets, which are extracted from miracle berry fruit, can help you alter the flavor of sour and acidic foods and drinks and make them taste sweet.

This is because miracle berries contain miraculin, a natural protein that binds your taste buds and changes your perception of taste. This is only temporary, as the effects of the fruit last about 60 minutes.

Our easy-melt tablets are completely natural and don’t contain any sugar, sweeteners, or chemical preservatives. They do contain antioxidants, vitamin C, and polyphenols, which help control blood sugar levels.

These tablets are the perfect substitute for sugar. We’ve compiled our top 5 delicious yet traditionally sugar-packed drinks and made them sugar free. To satisfy that pesky sweet tooth, be sure to consume a miracle berry tablet before drinking the beverage. Check out these healthy sugar-free homemade drink recipes and satisfy any sugar craving that comes your way!

Strawberry Limeade

This refreshing drink is a wonderful mixture of sweet and sour, and a perfectly healthy drink for both you and your kids.

Remember, if you drink it after eating a miracle berry or taking a miracle berry tablet, you won’t notice the sour taste of lime at all. The drink will be completely sweet, which is great if you don’t particularly like the sour taste.

Ingredients:

• 1 ½ cups of fresh strawberries

• 1 cup of fresh lime juice

• 5 cups of cold water

• Ice cubes

• Lime wedges for garnishing

Preparation:

Cut the strawberries into quarters and put them in a blender. Add lime juice and blend until completely smooth.

Pour the mixture into a pitcher, and add cold water and ice cubes. Pour into glasses and garnish the drinks with lime wedges. You can also garnish them with strawberries.

Old-Fashioned Lemonade

This is a classic drink that never goes out of style. There’s rarely anything as refreshing as good old lemonade, but most of us can’t really enjoy it without adding sugar.

Luckily, with miracle berry tablets, your lemonade will taste as sweet as candy.

Ingredients:

• 12 lemons

• 6 cups of water

• Ice cubes

• Lemon slices for garnishing

Preparation:

Squeeze the lemons to make fresh juice and pour it into a pitcher. Add water and ice, and throw in a few lemon slices to garnish the drink.

Southern Sweet Tea

This iced tea beverage is ideal for hot summer days, or when autumn starts knocking on your door. If you like drinking tea, you’ll absolutely love this drink.

Remember to take a miracle berry tablet about a minute before drinking the iced tea, so that it can taste just as if you added sugar.

Ingredients:

• 1 pinch of baking soda

• 2 cups of boiling water

• 6 cups of cool water

• 6 tea bags

Preparation:

Pour the boiled water into a large heat-resistant glass pitcher. Add a pinch of baking soda and the tea bags. Cover the pitcher and let the water steep for about 15 minutes.

Take the tea bags out and pour the cool water into the pitcher. Put the pitcher into a refrigerator to completely cool the drink. It should be cold and ready to serve in about 3 hours.

Pineapple Punch

Want to treat your family and friends with a delicious party punch for a special occasion? This pineapple punch is just what you need.

The best part about it is that you can play around with the ingredients. The key is to add pineapple, but you can replace everything else with anything you’d like.

Ingredients:

• 46-ounce can of pineapple juice

• 2 liters of Sprite Zero

• 2 packages of flavored drink mix

• Ice cubes

• Pineapple slices for garnishing

Preparation:

Pour the pineapple juice into a punchbowl. Add your preferred drink mix, such as sugar-free Kool-Aid, for instance. Stir the mixture well, and then pour in Sprite Zero. You can also use sugar-free ginger ale or any other carbonated beverage instead of Sprite.

Add ice and garnish the punch with pineapple slices.

Frozen Raspberry Lemonade

This delightful drink will keep you cool during those long, hot summer days. Just like the strawberry limeade, it’s a tasty mixture of sweet and sour, but you can turn the sour into sweet with miracle berries.

Ingredients:

• 2 lemons

• ½ cup of raspberries

• ½ cup of water

• 3 cups of ice cubes

Preparation:

Squeeze the lemons to make fresh juice. Pour the juice into a blender. Add water and raspberries. Blend until completely smooth (it should take about 2 minutes). If you don’t want your drink to have raspberry seeds, you can simply strain the puree.

Add the ice to the blender and blend until the mixture is smooth. Pour into glasses and garnish with a few raspberries.
