Sugar Free Sangria

HAPPY MONDAY!!! Being that we are already in May, I thought I would do something a little different and kick off Spring with some fun! I have done some experimenting with food and drinks over the last month and actually discovered an amazing & healthy (somewhat) drink! Sugar-free Sangria !!!!

What?!?!…. That’s Correct!!! It is pretty much amazing! I wanted to drink something besides dry, red wine for this detox and I love Sangria. Why not make one that fits my diet AND doesn’t make me bloated. I know there are so many ways to make Sangria but I also know that it is possible to make a healthier drink that wont kill you on the calories. I have also discovered LaCroix water trying to stay away from Diet Coke. Let me tell you…. this stuff is amazing!!! It helps replace the carbonation craving and rather than reaching for a soda, this will help curve the craving! There are so many flavors and they are all delicious. I decided to add some to my Sangria and I am so glad I did πŸ™‚

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 bottles red wine (I used Pinot Noir (dryest))
  • ΒΌ cup La Croix Cranberry Sparkling Water
  • ΒΌ cup club soda
  • 3 oranges (thinly sliced)
  • 1 lemon (thinly sliced)
  • 1 lime (thinly sliced)
  • ΒΌ cup apples
  • ΒΌ cup cherries (pitted)
  • ΒΌ cup raspberries
Β pitcher
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Mix all ingredients together in large pitcher.
  2. Chill in fridge and add ice.

Feel free to change the fruits up to what ever you have available. One of my favorite sangria mixes was mainly berries but there was Brandy and Grand Marnier mixed in. Try it out.

What are some specialty drinks you are loving? Any healthy drinks you think I need to try?

  • I never put sugar in my sangria when I make it!! Fresh fruit provides enough sweetness πŸ˜‰ Sounds great! Have a great Monday!

    • The only sugar really comes from the Marnier or any other liquors that you add in… I like white wine in my sangria but most of them are full of sugar!!! We need a Sangria date too lol πŸ™‚

      • Yeah, I usually don’t even add that! I think I’m doing it all wrong!! haha teach me your ways πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        • So we need to do a Sangria, Wine, Dance party, Spin, Run Date!!! lol πŸ™‚

  • Yum!! I love sangria, but never have a legit recipe – kind of just wing it every time lol. Totally saving this one! Sounds perfect for Summer πŸ™‚

  • This sounds delish!!! Also, you’ve motivated me to hop on the no sugar train! I definitely haven’t been as strict as you have been but my meals have been much healthier and more clean. Thanks for the motivation girl!!

    • Oh you should totally do it… It really wasnt that hard at all, I just missed my Diet Coke and the random sweets around the office. I do feel so much better and will probably continue to eat cleaner. YOU CAN DO IT!!! πŸ™‚

  • La Croix water is amazing and a healthier sangria!! That’s a no brainer! πŸ€— I’ll definitely have to try this!!! πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ˜πŸ· cheers!

    • Its so delicious! I love ALL LaCroix flavors… My fav is the Mango πŸ™‚

      • Ooo! I’ll have to try that one! I love the cherry lime…reminds me of summer πŸ™‚ But it’s true ALL of the ones I have tried are so good!

  • That looks so nice :). I used to work in a Spanish restaurant a few years ago and use to get to drink this a lot, the only thing was it was so sugary it hurt my teeth if I drank too much so this recipe is perfect! I’m with you on the diet coke thing, trying to cut back on it but I really crave it, would love to try the La Croix water x
