When you're trying to snack and drink healthy all Summer, but the kids are screaming for flavored drinks, what do you do?

I have the solution for you:

santa cruz products

Santa Cruz Organic was the first company to have a wide range of organic, 100 percent juices and blends. They were also the first juice processor to use all organic fruit sourced from growers certified by an independent, third-party certification organization. Which means you are getting JUICE and none of the fillers and concentrates like popular brands give you! YEAH!

Santa Cruz Organic currently offers more than 50 organic items ranging from organic fruit juices and sparkling beverages to organic fruit sauces, chocolate syrups, peanut butters, and fruit spreads. Isn't that amazing? Bet you didn't realize they were around, did you?

I didn't either!

SO I was thrilled to recently be able to check out their new line of innovative Summer products, Aqua Fresca

This gluten-free and Non-GMO Project Certified beverage is made with USDA Organic certified ingredients, with organic juice/fruit purée as the first ingredient after water.  It comes in 3 flavors: Pomegranate, Grapefruit or Mango Passionfruit.

You know me, if it's Pomegrante, I'm there! So it was actually the first bottle we opened (ok well UPS decided to open the first bottle, thanks SO much for that by the way, LOL)! Inspired by traditional agua fresca, Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca is made with  a handful of USDA Certified Organic ingredients, such as organic fruit juice/fruit puree, as the first ingredient after water! Add in organic sugar  and a hint of lemon juice, and you have a light, simple beverage. And you can TASTE the difference! What you get is pure juice flavor, not any super sweet trying to taste like soda juice! Knowing the beverage is also Non-GMO, makes you feel even BETTER about drinking it!

I'll tell you more about qua Fresca in a minute. Let me tell you about their yummy Lemonade!

Yes, even the cat thinks it smells good and wants some (which happens when the kid puts her drink down while petting said cat, LOL). Like the Aqua Fresca, it comes in 3 flavors: Cherry, Peach, Mango, Raspberry, Strawberry, and Original Lemonade, pictured above. We also tried the yummy Raspberry Lemonade. Made like Aqua Fresca, with simple organic ingredients like filtered water, organic lemon juice puree and organic lemon juice concentrate, it tastes JUST like what you make at home! Like Aqua Fresca, it comes in recyclable glass bottles too!

santa cruz aqua fresca and applesauce

Miss Grace became hooked on their natural Apples Sauce Pouches, besides her Aqua Fresca Pomegranate flavored tea! Santa Cruz has taken applesauce to a new level with its line of organic applesauce! The base for all of the applesauce flavors is created by grinding certified USDA organic apples into a smooth, saucy blend. There is so much REAL apple there, that each 4-ounce serving provides 100% RDI of Vitamin C. Additions like cinnamon or pureed organic fruits like strawberries, or apricots, make for complex and lively flavors, that your kids will love too! 

As a mom, you'll LOVE that it is made with 3 ingredients- apples, water and Vitamin C!. PERIOD. Which is why it is SO tasty! And the on-the-go pouches mean that your kids can have not only a great tasting snack on the road, at the park or the beach, this Summer, put you'll have less mess and utensils to carry! Miss Gace is already asking for them for school lunches in the Fall, so you KNOW they're great tasting!

Aqua Fresca is also great for a long Summer day wind down drink as well! I used the Grapefruit Auqa Fresca for a simple cocktail of organic sugar and gin, for a super light cocktail, that is perfect for any Summer party, or for just relaxing with after the kids have all gone to bed! Add a sprig of fresh rosemary and your cares seem to melt away!

You'll want to add these GREAT organic products to your Summer drinking and snacking too!
