Fruit-infused beverage? Sounds interesting, right? I thought so, too. That's why I was PSYCHED when I was selected to receive a 17 lb (for real) case of CORE Organic drinks to taste and review.
I've drank 11 out of the 12 bottles CORE sent me - so I guess you can say I like them ;) The only way I can think to describe them are, they taste like fruit-infused water, but better.
- USDA Certified Organic
- Only 5 calories per serving (each bottle is considered 2 servings)
- Low glycemic - (less than 1 g per serving)
- Gluten-free, non-GMO, OU Kosher, soy-free and vegan-friendly
- Each serving contains the same amount of antioxidants as a 1/2 cup serving of blackberries or cherries.
How do they fit into my day-to-day & fitness routine?
I drink water ALL THE TIME. I get dehydrated easily, especially while working out, so I'm constantly needing to drink up. I don't mind drinking that much water, but let's face it - it gets really boring. And while this isn't a water-based drink, it's light enough that if I take a sip and start doing burpees, I don't think I'm going to hurl. Bonus points!
While I haven't replaced this with the 100 + ounces of water I drink throughout the day, I've really enjoyed using it as another source of hydration. And not just for workouts! I've drank so many of these at my desk at work, and let friends taste a few bottles, they're already talking about convincing the office manager to stock some of the fridges with them. #trendsetter
It's basically impossible for someone to not like these when they come in such amazing flavors, like: Watermelon Lemonade, Peach Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Orange Clementine, Coconut Colada and Orchard Pear.
Personally, my fave is either the Peach Mango or the Watermelon Lemonade. My boyfriend, Chris, is a huge fan of the Pomegranate Acai. I didn't actually give him permission to drink any of them, so he took it upon himself (and he's glad he did.)
Have I talked these up enough yet? Are you itching to try 'em yourself?!
