The Sweet Side of Summer Beverages

Have you ever given thought to your summer beverage habits?

Like barbeques and beach getaways, lemonade stands and tall glasses of iced tea are summer staples. As we enter the season of sweet, fruity beverages, now more than ever, we’re conscious of the added sugar and calories we’re drinking. With the average American consuming over the daily recommended amount of full sugar, low-calorie sweeteners offer a way to sweeten your cup without all of the added sugar. No wonder 95% of survey respondents would consider using a low calorie sweetener when making large batches of summer beverages!

Check out this infographic (pdf version) for more enlightening facts and to see how your beverage behavior compares! (Note: a downloadable image of the infographic also appears here.)

Try some of these SPLENDA® Brand summer recipes to start cutting added sugars from beverages today including Peach Flavored Green Tea Punch, Cantaloupe Agua Fresca, and Gingery Lemonade.
