This drink will quench your thirst and keep your waistline small

Oh, how refreshing does an ice cold 32 oz Mountain Dew taste. Once you swipe your credit card at the register and crack open the top, you’re instantly treated to all sorts of lemon-lime flavoring as it slides down your throat. Look down to your stomach. It’s also treated to something: 240 calories and 91 grams of sugar. For a drink that usually supplements a meal, that’s extremely unhealthy. After repeated use, you’ll begin to see the effects it has on your waistline. Here at GIFITIZE, we value great drinks and low calories — it is summer after all. To keep your thirst quenched with delicious and healthy beverages we decided to conduct some independent research and find what’s best out there. Here are our pick for the best summer drink to keep your thirst satiated and your stomach flat.

Kevita Sparkling Probiotic Lemon Ginger — 8 OZ

Why is the drink white? Why is it so small? Most importantly, how in the world does Lemon and Ginger go together?

Your questions are well warranted. Kevita’s sparkling drinks are an acquired taste. They’re tart but endearing in quality. And if you think this combination is weird, see their Lemon and Cayenne Pepper combination.

Yeah, that’s what we thought too.

The drink only has 9 grams of sugar and only 40 calories. It’s also a probiotic rich drink, meaning that it powers up your digestive system by adding friendly bacteria to it. People have also reported probiotic drinks getting rid of nausea and indigestion.

As healthy as it is, there’s no way that you can pass it up. At only $1.99, these drinks can be found at local gas stations usually in the same casing as the Vitamin Water.

The Kevita company was founded by CEO Bill Moses and his business partner Chakra Earthsong Levy in 2009. The first of its probiotic line was made available in a handful of Whole Foods stores in Southern California the following year. Today, the company sees 100% growth year over year as consumers learn more about their drinks.

Stop by the gas station and spend two dollars on something new. You never know, you just might find your Mountain Dew replacement.
