With summer comes the struggle to find the right thirst quencher as opting for aerated drinks can add unnecessary body weight. And, it is very important to stay hydrated all the time. Instead of regular plain water, one can quench the thirst in a healthy way with a few drinks in this scorching summer. Here are a few of them. Have a look!
1. Coconut Water
It is the most natural drink after regular water to keep oneself hydrated. Besides being naturally refreshing and it also boasts of a sweet nutty taste. Coconut water is the clear liquid that is extracted from a young green coconut, usually a harvest between 5-7 months. It rehydrates the body as it comprises processed carbohydrates in the form of electrolytes and sugar, which in turn help balance the water levels in the body.
Possibly the most popular beverage in the world, it helps energise your body as well as kill your thirst. It is an excellent source of vitamin C and helps in improving digestion. The good part about this beverage is that it helps in cleansing your body and reduces the risk of experiencing heartburn or bloating.
The beverage is traditionally served in earthen clay pots, referred to as 'matkas', which aid in providing the instant coolness that is associated with the drink. This smoothie-like drink is made from yoghurt and boasts of a creamy texture. It is sweet in flavour, but can also be enjoyed in a savoury form too. It is an excellent digestive and helps in energising the body as well.
4. Sugarcane Juice
This is the perfect drink to beat the summer heat. It also serves as an energy drink. A glass of cold sugarcane juice can help rebuild the depleting energy levels in your body. It is rich in antioxidants and acts as a diuretic and helps keep your liver strong.
