Cucumber Cherry Lime Mocktail

What a better way to celebrate summer than to use in-season ingredients that have the bonus of giving us better sleep — like this Cucumber Cherry Lime Mocktail!

Although this craft mocktail contains cherry juice, which is essentially straight fructose, the cucumber’s fiber will help blunt the blood-sugar spike. Also, tart cherry juice has mega phyto-nutrients and antioxidants!

{If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic, please be smart about consuming drinks with fruit juice. This is technically sugar free, but that only means ‘added sugars’. The fruit juice still contains fructose!}
