Key ingredient: Strawberries

Strawberries are among the most popular fruits consumed throughout the world. Not only are these berries scrumptious, but they are also highly nutritious and health-promoting. Strawberries score approximately a 40 on the glycemic index. This is a low number compared to many fresh fruits. Researchers have found that consumption of strawberries following a meal has a positive impact on the regulation of insulin and blood sugar levels. Strawberries contain a number of anti- inflammatory polyphenols, including ellagitannins. The ellagitannins in strawberries have been found to block inflammatory actions in the body.

This Orange Strawberry Fizz is another great soda alternative and is a beautifully colored drink.
