7 fizzy pop swaps

Emma Brown - Nutritionist | 16 Oct, 2021

Drinking fizzy drinks too often, whether sugar-free or not, can have harmful effects on our teeth. Limit how often you drink fizzy drinks and try some of our healthier and tastier options!


1 Homemade smoothies

While these can be high in sugars, they also contain important nutrients, making them a good choice.


2 Green tea

Opt for an unsweetened version and try both hot and iced to see which you like best.


3 Fresh coconut water

This can be very refreshing and is bursting with nutrients.


4 Lower-fat milks

Why not blend in a banana for a healthy milkshake full of calcium, protein and vitamins.


5 Herb and fruit infused water

Try adding mint or cucumber to your water for a tasty, nutritious kick.


6 Freshly squeezed juices

While still high in sugar, freshly squeezed juices are fine in moderation as they still contain lots of essential vitamins.


7 Kombucha drinks

Opt for unsweetened to limit added sugars. These fermented drinks can be great for our gut health.
