2. Cantaloupe Smoothie

Fresh melon is a great way to stay hydrated in the summer. Eat it right off the rind, or blend it into a hydrating smoothie.

3. Chia Cocktails

If you’ve already tried Chia Pudding or using chia seeds in baked goods or smoothies, it’s time to take your hydration to the next level with these two chia cocktails. Chia seeds absorb up to 10 times their weight in water, and will help you stay hydrated, longer.

4. Hydrating Lemonade

It never hurts to get back to basics. While not as generous as one bought from the lemonade stand down the street, this lemonade is low in sugar, and makes a whole pitcher.

9. Shrub and Soda

You already take shots of apple cider vinegar, but have you ever made drinking vinegar? A classic mocktail of cherry balsamic shrub (drinking vinegar) mixed with seltzer (soda) water. Don’t knock it until you try it.

Turn to this delightfully, fresh and flavorful sangria.  Made with Vega Sport Electrolyte Hydrator, fresh fruit and a little vino, this cocktail will make your taste buds celebrate.
