Friday Food : Cherry Limeade LaCroix

Most of you know I am obsessed with Cherry Limeade. You may have figured this out when I made Cherry Limeade Sugar Cookies this Christmas. Well now I have done it again with Cherry Limeade LaCroix! Well, technically it’s just Cherry Limeade water, but have you tried LaCroix water? It’s a sparkling water, but it doesn’t have any artificial colors or sugars. And I mean no sugars at all, not even tricky natural sugars like stevia that still sucks. Haha. I love it because the bubbles and can trick my mind into thinking we’re drinking pop, but we arrrreeeennn’t! They even have their own recipes section.

Cherry Limeade LaCroix

Cherry Limeade LaCroix

What you need:

  • 1 cup cherries (I used frozen, pitted)
  • 1 can LaCroix lime water

Directions:

Combine cherries and water in a blender, pulse or blend to desired consistenc

Comments:

Okay I admit this is a rather “easy” recipe, but for all the people flocking to homemade “-ades” this tastes just as great and doesn’t have any sugar in it other than the sweetness in the cherries. I also see all the fast food places like McDonald’s or Dunkin’ Doughnuts advertising their frozen drinks. This makes my teeth and stomach hurt when I think of all the weird stuff tossed into those mixes. Try this instead and throw in ice cubes. You’ll have your own frozen delight in just minutes and at a fraction of the cost, both to your wallet and your health.

LaCroix comes in a lot of different flavors including lemon, lime, coconut, raspberry, orange, and just original “water” type flavor. If you don’t get a flavored version consider adding lime or lemon juice extract to make your -ade?.

How about all of you. Do you like flavored water? How do you trick yourself when you need a treat? Maybe you don’t need to trick yourself at all?

Oh and for those wondering, I’m not connected to La Croix, I just like ’em!

  1. Oh my gosh – what a great idea!!! I LOVE any sparkling water because I hate sweet drinks but I still want some flavor. I’m definitely going to try this. Thanks for sharing!
