Many people store powdered drink mixes to help with the taste of stored water. To be honest, that is exactly why I initially bought THRIVE drink mixes. They have been one of the last things I’ve added to our home store. However, now that I have them, I wish I’d gotten them sooner!
THRIVE drink mixes are simply fabulous. After trying them, I no longer plan to use them just to freshen up my stored water (the reason I bought them). Instead, they are replacing expensive juice in our home!
These drinks have no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners (no high fructose corn syrup etc.). They are made fruit real fruit powder, citric acid and fruit and vegetable juice for color. They have the same amount of sugar and vitamin C you find in 100% juice at the grocery store, but in addition, they have Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Niacin, Folate, Biotin, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and Zinc! WOW…that is a mouthful! (pun intended). All those vitamins will provide much needed energy: in an emergency situation or everyday!
And at an average of $1.77 / prepared 2 qts, they cost less than juice!*
Plus, they taste GREAT! The only one I haven’t tried is the THRIVE Fruit Punch Performance, but I’ve been told it is a lot like Gatorade. The rest taste very similar to juice to me. My two favorites are THRIVE Simply Peach, and THRIVE Mango Passion. I’ve actually been drinking a glassful each day with my lunch this week and I’m loving the energy! My kids love them too. Can’t get enough. Having worked in pediatric dentistry for years, I rarely let them have juice b/c of the sugar content, but lately when they ask for some, the THRIVE drinks are what they want. And I’m more apt to give it to them b/c of all those extra vitamins!

I’m a relatively new consultant and have been absorbing as much information from training materials, videos, and great blogs like this one for a couple months. I saw one of your videos where you mentioned why you store powdered drink mixes and it was an Aha! moment for me. Thanks for explaining it in further detail here. They way you put it makes it easy to explain the benefits to others! Thanks for sharing and all the hard work that goes into this blog. It’s been more helpful than you can ever know…
I’m so glad you’ve found it helpful Katie! Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is always nice to know when something you’ve done has helped others. Best of luck!
