5 Easy Mocktail Ideas

Easter is all about family, friends and spending time together. The weather is perfect for outdoor gatherings. Whether you are organising a family lunch or a braai with friends, these mocktails are perfect.

All of these mocktails are jam-packed with vitamin C which makes them perfect as we head into winter.

Ginger: Ginger is one of those things you either love or you hate. I am not a huge fan (not even with my sushi) but it is a pretty beneficial food. It can help with the aches and pains associated with your period and stimulates circulation and it inhibits rhinovirus, which can cause the common cold.

Orange: Oranges are a good source of vitamin C and because they are so yummy it is an easy way to get Vitamin C into your kids. Oranges can also help promote healthy immunity and prevent skin damage.

Pineapples: Pineapples are rich in nutrients and they are loaded with healthy antioxidants. They also contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and enzymes like bromelain that may collectively boost immunity and suppress inflammation.

Strawberries: Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese and they contain vitamin B9 and potassium. They are also rich in antioxidants and plant compounds which have benefits for your heart health.
