4 Refreshing and Healthy Drinks for Summer

4 Refreshing and Healthy Drinks for Summer 3

Summer’s coming and that means it’s time to sit on a patio and enjoy a cold, refreshing drink. We’re trading in the artificial flavors and sweeteners found at Starbucks and other chains for inflammation-fighting turmeric and hydrating coconut water. We’re also serving up sweet tea that’s even sweeter without the sugar. There’s a dreamy, creamy peanut butter milkshake to take you back to the summers of your childhood-with collagen to add a boost of youth to your skin.

Iced Turmeric Latte


1 cup non-dairy milk (at Naturally Savvy, we like So Delicious)

1 tsp organic turmeric

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (plus more to sprinkle on top)

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp agave, honey, maple syrup, or other natural sweetener

1/8 tsp black pepper (this is crucial to the bioavailability of the curcumin)


Blend ingredients together in a blender and pour over ice.

Coconut Cold Brew


1/2 cup coarsely ground coffee

2 cups water

1/4 cup coconut water

coconut milk to taste


Add the coffee and water to a mason jar and let sit overnight. In the morning, strain using a cheesecloth and fine mesh strainer. Combine coffee with coconut water and coconut milk, adjusting for taste. Note: You can make the cold brew stronger or weaker by adjusting the coffee to water ratio.

Berry Mint Sweet Tea


4 cups water

3 bags Red Raspberry Bigelow Tea

7 leaves mint

1/4 cup raspberries

1/2 cup xylitol or other sweetener to taste


Bring water to a boil and steep tea for at least 5 minutes. Add xylitol and stir to combine. Chill for 2-3 hours, adding mint leaves and fresh raspberries before serving.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Collagen Milkshake


1 frozen chopped banana

2 Tbsp natural peanut butter

2 Tbsp cacao powder

1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 scoop Neocell Super Collagen

water if necessary


Blend everything in a high-speed blender with 5 or 6 ice cubes. Tip: Double blend for a really smooth drink.
