In this Clean Eating episode, Arielle helps you kick the habit of all those sugary sodas and sweetened fruit drinks by showing you how to make a fruit sangria that uses water as a base instead of wine or soda.

[SOUND] I'm Arielle Haspel
with Healthy Nation and
00:03.770 --> 00:08.941
today we are going to kick that nasty
habit of all those sugary sodas,
00:08.941 --> 00:14.220
sweetened fruit drinks and we are going
to make a water fruit sangria.
00:14.220 --> 00:16.600
00:16.600 --> 00:21.820
So what we're gonna use to make this water
fruit sangria is of course,fresh fruit.
00:21.820 --> 00:24.300
Now, if you want,
you can cut up some fruit and
00:24.300 --> 00:27.630
you can put it directly into your
freezer and freeze it on your own or
00:27.630 --> 00:30.070
you can use frozen fruit
from your supermarket.
00:30.070 --> 00:31.920
So here we've got some peaches and
00:31.920 --> 00:35.600
we're going to put them
into some raspberry water.
00:35.600 --> 00:36.900
Look how gorgeous this water is.
00:36.900 --> 00:38.870
It looks like KoolAid, right?
00:38.870 --> 00:41.550
All it is, is water and raspberries.
00:41.550 --> 00:44.650
Not to mention it tastes so
sweet, so delicious.
00:44.650 --> 00:45.740
00:45.740 --> 00:49.770
if you like raspberries, this alone is
gonna become your new favorite drink.
00:49.770 --> 00:51.630
So we're gonna just put some peaches in.
00:55.280 --> 00:56.320
00:56.320 --> 00:58.240
And now we're gonna add some strawberries.
00:58.240 --> 01:02.630
So you know those weeks,
especially during the summer when
01:02.630 --> 01:05.730
you have too much fruit and
the fruit starts going bad?
01:05.730 --> 01:10.530
Well, this is the perfect recipe because
if you just cut up the fruit and put
01:10.530 --> 01:16.230
into a Ziploc bag, put it in the freezer,
you can frozen fruit all year long.
01:16.230 --> 01:21.620
And here we have some blueberries and this
just adds a nice pop of color as well.
01:21.620 --> 01:23.240
How beautiful is this?
01:23.240 --> 01:26.020
Blueberries, peaches, raspberries.
01:26.020 --> 01:28.100
You can add blackberries
to it if you want.
01:28.100 --> 01:30.230
Pineapple is also delicious and
01:30.230 --> 01:33.460
I'm just gonna add a little more water.
01:33.460 --> 01:36.347
We want to really get rid
of those sugary drinks and
01:36.347 --> 01:40.612
we want to replace them with something
like this that tastes delicious and
01:40.612 --> 01:44.560
looks beautiful and that your
body's gonna love you for drinking.
01:44.560 --> 01:47.780
Cheers to a healthy body and a sweet life.
