Water is the best thing to drink but, if that just doesn’t excite you we have a list of tasty and easy to make juices and naturally flavoured waters to get you by.

Juicing has become very popular and when you limit the amount of fruit it can also be low in sugar. When juicing try and juice more veg than fruit, think of fruit like the sweetener.
