Lite'n It Up Group Feature: Sparkling Water with Lemon Zest Ice

Lite'n It Up Group Feature: Sparkling Water with Lemon Zest Ice

Even though summer is sadly coming to an end, I am still looking for a refreshing, low-cal drink, especially since September and October are the hot months here in San Francisco.

User Shanlee has shared a quick and inventive (not to mention low-cal) idea for a refreshing summer drink, that she uses to curb her wine craving.

I've been cutting calories and the best substitute for wine I've found is a glass of Calistoga with Lemon Zest Ice. It's pretty easy to do. Basically, you zest lemon or limes or both together and place a little bit in an ice cube tray and fill with water and freeze. The result are cubes of zesty citrus. Take four cubes and put into a glass and fill with your favorite sparkling water!

Sounds refreshing and oh so easy, doesn't it? I am not sure it can fill the shoes of my occasional glass of wine, but I'd be willing to give it a shot.

Not sure what zest means? Check out the definition on YumSugar.

If you have your own healthy recipe idea, share it in the Lite'n it Up Group. Need something a little more substantial? Then try this recipe for chocolate ice cubes.

You can also mix it with your favorite pinot gris (it's the Oregonian in me) too.
